[This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]Sensory metrology is an increasingly important method in product design. Information obtained from sensory analysis enables designers to create competitive products. Experts use calibrated subjective judgments to rate the sensory characteristics of products and create an "average expert" model. However, this model does not reflect either the reliability or the confidence of each expert's own judgment. To address this problem, the Experton theory is used to retain each expert's decisions.
