Use of Panel Analysis
Use this tool to check whether your sensory or consumer panel allows to differentiate a series of products. If it does, measure to what extent and make sure that the ratings given by the assessors are reliable.
Eight different types of analyses are performed so that you have a clear idea of how your panel performs whether globally or product by product. This unique feature saves you a lot of time by running computations automatically which would otherwise take hours to do by hand. From table reformatting to ANOVAs, Principal Component Analysis, Multiple Factor Analysis and Hierarchical Clustering, all methods are run one after the other with no action required from the user.
