Sensory Evaluation

Learn how to address issues commonly encountered in sensory evaluation & consumer research. Modules cover the design of studies and the analysis of descriptive, discriminative and consumer test data.

Understanding consumers and their preferences is crucial for competitive businesses. Learn about commonly used methods to analyse consumer test data, the way to interpret results and to communicate them with insightful graphical summaries.

Learn about preference mapping techniques to explore and understand consumer preferences. Applications dealing with segmentation and the identification of niche markets are discussed. Focus on pitfalls and good practices.

Discover a powerful multivariate technique for mapping the consensus among assessors rating series of products/concepts, and for quantifying and mapping the redundancy in sensory descriptors.

This workshop on Measuring and Reporting Descriptive Panel Performance first introduces indicators designed to capture the desirable attributes of descriptive data collected by a trained sensory panel (agreement, repeatability and discrimination power). A suite of statistical tools are used to depict and quantify the performance of the panel.

Real-life case studies are used to illustrate the principles of the statistical tools and the insights that may be extracted from the data.
