The method of expertons is a methodology that has been developed in the field of fuzzy logic. This methodology allows qualitative and subjective assessments to be made by a group of experts on one or several criteria that are desired to be evaluated for decision making. In this sense, this chapter presents a proposal for the application of the method of expertons in response to article 150.2 of the PSCL, for which a practical assumption is presented, the results of which allow the application of this methodology to be positively evaluated, without forgetting the origin of the result, and that opens the possibility for future research.
