Description

The area of individual differences and segmentation is of great importance in modern science, since average effects and tendencies are found to lack important information and do not offer enough opportunities to support modern technologies and techniques.

Individual Differences in Sensory and Consumer Science presents easily readable state-of-the-art coverage of how to plan and execute experiments which give rise to individual differences, and then provides the framework for successful analysis and interpretation of these results. The book highlights the different methodologies can be applied and how to select the correct methodology dependent upon the type of study that you are performing, be that product research and development, quality control, or consumer acceptance studies.

Written by an experienced team of statisticians and sensory and consumer scientists Individual Differences in Sensory and Consumer Science provides both academics and industry professionals with the first complete overview of a topic of ever increasing importance.

Key Features

  • Identifies how to plan and execute experiments in sensory and consumer science
  • Analyzes and interprets individual variances in sensory and consumer research
  • Differentiates best practices for examining product development, quality control, and consumer acceptance

Readership

Sensory scientists in research and industry, Statisticians working in the sensory and consumer science area, Postgraduate students in sensometrics, and high level undergraduate courses
