Multivariate Data Analysis & Chemometrics training

Multivariate Analysis - Level 1
M201 - 3 days

The world is Multivariate and, as a result, MVA of complex datasets is practised in almost all types of manufacturing sectors and research-based institutions. This workshop introduces the powerful methods and tools that are available to help you to turn large complex multivariate data into informed decisions. The workshop features the Unscrambler® software package from CAMO.

Topics covered

  • Introduction to Multivariate Data Modelling
  • Principles and applications of Principal Components Analysis (PCA)
  • Multivariate regression:
  • Multilinear regression (MLR)
  • Principal Components Regression (PCR)
  • Partial Least Squares (PLS)
  • Relevant data collection
  • Pretreatment and scaling
  • Detecting and dealing with Outliers
  • Calibration
  • Validation
  • Prediction
  • Basic rules for successful data analysis
