sensory evaluation applications
  • quality control

your best ally to track the sensory characteristics of your product, detect defects and understand the variation of your product.

  •  research & development

it helps you understand the mechanisms of perception of the stimuli of your product, as well as its acceptability.

  • marketing

streamline the commercial approach by testing preference and acceptability with consumer, allowing comparisons with products of your competition.

 
FIZZ versions 

FIZZ network

  • it is the most powerful and fastest solution for tests on computers that share the same network. It is recommended for established places such as a sensory evaluation laboratory.

  • provides the possibility to run different tests in different booths, as well as several tests at the same time allowing the judge to choose the test or establish an order.

  • stop the session in all the terminals of your cabins at the same time or select them independently.

  • monitor the progress of each terminal from the supervisor window.

  • the collected data is instantly available for analysis through FIZZ Calculations.

FIZZ portable

  • the solution for computers or tablets that do not share a network.

  • recommended for remote sites. The distribution of questionnaires and data collection is easy and fast.

  • run the same tests as in your laboratory, but on independent computers, without having to access a network or the Internet..

  • gives you the possibility to send the session as an attachment via email, share it through a file server or with a USB stick.

  • the answers can be collected through the same options that are available as sending the session.

FIZZ forms

  • for paper tests with automatic reading through a scanner.

  • you can take your tests anywhere, no hardware is needed to apply them. just pen and paper.

  • it is possible to combine different types of questions in the same test and include images as characteristics of a product.

  • fast scanning: a scan report is generated that gives warnings about missing or invalid answers.

  • the results of each scanned page are immediately accessible for analysis through FIZZ calculations.

  • possibility of placing a space for the judge or consumer to write comments by hand and then code them to analyze them as multiple choice questions.

FIZZ web

  • run tests through the Internet.

  • easy to share with your judge or consumer. You can generate automatic invitations to send by email..

  • recommended for tests at home, in remote sites, recruitment of panelists and much more!

  • define your tests with multimedia features of the product.

  • publish your tests through the FIZZ web server

  • control your tests from your computer, consolidate your answers whenever you want.

FIZZ acquisition:

  • create, modify, simulate, and apply your questionnaires, and obtain your results.

  • fully integrated with FIZZ Calculations and FIZZ Database.

  • select and combine all kinds of questions in your tests, from discriminatory and multiple choice tests, to tests such as time-intensity, descriptive profiles, sorting (napping®), temporary methods, even also preference tests and much more!

  • FIZZ automatically generates your sample presentation design and blind codes, also with the possibility of establishing specific presentation designs.

  • print your code labels from FIZZ.

  • total control of your test protocol sequence with the portable, network and web modalities.

FIZZ Calculations

  • fully integrated with FIZZ Acquisition and FIZZ Database.

  • analyze your data according to the sensory test you have chosen.

  • export and import data to any spreadsheet format.

  • apply descriptive (tables and graphs) and inferential (hypothesis test) statistics.

  • discriminative tests: difference tests (risk α) similarity tests (risk ß) and sensory difference (d prime).

  • profiles: descriptive statistics, interaction of graphs, comparison of graphs by product, performance of judges, frequencies, distributions, analysis of variance for different types of tests, t-student, non-parametric tests.

  • ranking: Friedman and Page tests, Round Robin (multiple pairs).

  • CATA and multiple choice questions: frequencies, bar and pie plots, chi-square tests, binomial tests, factorial correspondence analysis (FCA), open questions that can be coded and analyzed as multiple choice questions.

  • temporal methods: time-intensity, temporal dominance of sensations (TDS) y TCATA.

  • advanced statistical methods: Multivariate analysis, Principal component analysis (PCA), cluster analysis, preference mapping (internal and external), FCA, PCA horizontal with multifactor analysis (MFA) and STATIS penalty analysis.

FIZZ database

  • store and administrate all your historical data – dates, products, judges, sessions, repetitions, and their details.

  • extract activity statistics such as the number of times each judge has participated, duration of tests, where and how often a product is used, clients, sample information and much more!

  • track changes of a product over time, number of times it has been rejected by quality control and performance of the judges.

  • select judges or consumers for new studies according to their performance.

  • combine results of different tests to analyze them together.

  • create automatic filters with specific criteria to be exported directly to a spreadsheet.

  • but, above all, save your information locally and not in the cloud, so only you can access it.
