The Generalized Nets (GNs) are extensions of the ordinary Petri nets and the other Petri net modifications. A GN-model of a multi-expert multi-criteria decision making process is described. It is extended with an intercriteria analysis of the criteria used by experts – an addition to the standard decision making procedure that changes in the end of a concrete procedure the criteria used by experts during it, so, in the next procedure they work with the modified set of criteria.
