Integrated computerized sensory analysis

Sara King/ December 21, 1986/ Peer-reviewed Paper/ 0 comments

A computerized sensory analysis system, based on an IBM-PC compatible local area network, was developed. Panellist input was simplified through the use of a light pen and interactive questionnaire program. The system was integrated to allow preparation of descriptive, hedonic, triangle, structured and unstructured ballots; registration of panellists; collection of data; statistical analysis and report generation. The primary benefits are the simplicity of response for panellists, flexibility for the sensory analyst to design questionnaires and the elimination of time-consuming manual scoring and data manipulation involved in conventional sensory analysis.
