Cost Efficient Methods for Product Mapping Workshop
July 8 & 9, 2010
Cornell University Ithaca, NY
Cornell Cooperative Extension and Department of Food Science
Professor Harry Lawless will be teaching a new workshop, entitled "Cost Efficient Methods for Product Mapping" on July 8 & 9, 2010 at Cornell University. In two days of lectures with case studies and examples and hands-on exercises, participants will learn about Perceptual Mapping and data analysis with the free R Statistics package. Perceptual mapping is a graphics technique used by sensory professionals and marketers that visually displays the perceptions of customers or potential customers. Typically the position of a product, product line, brand, or company is illustrated relative to their competition.
- To introduce principles of perceptual mapping via multivariate statistical analysis.
- To teach students how to use sorting and napping (projective mapping) as data gathering techniques.
- To teach participants how to analyze sorting and napping data to make perceptual maps using multidimensional scaling (MDS) and multifactor analysis (MFA).
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This hands-on short course is designed for the more experienced professional who wants to learn about perceptual mapping and shortcut methods for data acquisition (ie. sorting and mapping). Other issues to be addressed include: Comparing outputs, Rv coefficients; PLS, Distatis and covariance matrix applications; Ideal point vs. vector models; evidence of segmentation. Sorting and Napping will be analyzed by MDS, MFA, Generalized Procrustes Analysis and Principal Components Analysis.
Using your own laptop, you'll work on projects that you can save for use when you return to your company.
