Implementing a Sensory Evaluation System in the Manufacturing Environment.

  • L. Gravina


Often the people responsible for implementing sensory evaluation systems have had no formal training in sensory evaluation and the task can seem quite daunting. This paper presents some elements that are considered important when planning the design and implementation of a sensory system for process control.

Attention to the types of people involved, the setting of minimum standards of operation, the systematic application of the system, the realistic approach to ongoing maintenance, the base of consumer preference and the link to other functions such as marketing and research and development are explored.
