The Science of Measuring Sensory Differences: Principles & New Developments

Course Description: In this 3.5-day course via Zoom, we will present how to establish a sensory “match" by using the Thurstonian modeling framework and a consumer-relevant action standard.
You will actively participate in a series of exercises using IFPrograms® software to find solutions to problems encountered in the scenario. By attending this course, participants will be able to generate superior recommendations for optimal panel sample sizes based on their company’s preferred risk profile.
This course has been developed for technical and supervisory personnel involved in all aspects of sensory and consumer research.
