Applications of Experimental Design for Consumer Science, Chicago, May 2020 – postponed

Product code: DoE-US-2020

Chicago

May 11, 2020

  • 1 day face-to-face masterclass
  • Taught by Anne Hasted
  • Price includes all refreshments and lunch

This one day workshop covers the approaches to product optimisation which control the recipes/processing variables tested with the aim of giving clear guidance on the key drivers of sensory/consumer responses. There are many different software tools which help with this, creating the experimental sample designs and providing graphical analysis to aid interpretation of the results. We will use Design Expert (www.statease.com) and there will be opportunities for you to “play” with the software and evaluate its ease of use and functionality.

For full workshop outline including a detailed list of topics, please view the course flyer (see below).

Workshop Outline

  • Motivation for use of structured sample designs.
  • Finding the key influences on consumer liking and sensory characteristics and uncovering interactions between ingredients and process parameters.
  • Using these key parameters to plan further studies to optimise and predict liking.
  • Dealing with more difficult problems -investigating the complete recipe or mixture.
  • Visualisation of the response surfaces, simultaneous optimisation of several performance measures including cost.
