"SIMS increases productivity in every step of the sensory and market research testing process," said John Ream, Managing Director of Sensory Computer Systems. "And, with the immediate results SIMS offers in the form of statistical reports and graphs, test administrators no longer have to spend valuable time inputting and analyzing test results."

Beginning with industry standard descriptive, affective, discrimination and consumer tests, SIMS allows users to work in an easy question and answer format. This format specifies sensory test standards including presentation methods, rotation plans for both complete and incomplete block designs, and full randomization.

Wizards, menus and pop-up lists simplify complex user choices. Once a test is designed, test administrators can conduct sample sessions right on their PC workstations, allowing them to quickly identify problems and refine test procedures. SIMS automates data collection, speeds input and reduces errors by both testers and sensory technicians. SIMS also improves data quality by eliminating keypunch errors and missing data.
