Title Procrustes analysis in studying sensory-instrumental relations
Author(s) Dijksterhuis, Garmt
Source Food Quality and Preference 5 (1994)1-2. - ISSN 0950-3293 - p. 115 - 120.
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 1994
Keyword(s) pre-scaling - Principal Component Analysis - Procrustes Analysis - Sensory-Instrumental relations - standardising

In this paper the relation between a sensory and an instrumental dataset is studied by means of Procrustes Analysis. The method is introduced with emphasis on its application to match two datasets. First the structure of each dataset is studied separately by means of Principal Component Analysis. After standardising the two datasets Procrustes Analysis is used to match the two sets. It is concluded that, though not often used to this end, Procrustes Analysis is a suitable method to study the relations between sensory and instrumental data.
