Software for analysis of sensory and consumer data

Project Description

Copyright © 2009-2015 Thomas Graff.


ConsumerCheck is a software for statistical analysis of data from sensory and consumer science, or more precisely data that is acquired from consumer trials and descriptive analysis performed by trained sensory panels. ConsumerCheck has a an easy-to-use graphical user interface that makes the statistical methods available to users that have little or no programming skills.


I wish the answer was:

pip install consumercheck

But unfortunately it is not that simple. The following list of python modules needs to be installed prior to using pip install consumercheck in order to make ConsumerCheck work.

Name Tested ver Function
chaco 4.4.1 Plotting library
pandas 0.15.1 Matrix container (0.16.2)
numpy 1.9.2 Basis for statistics and datatype
traits 4.5.0 Event and type automation for Traitsui and Chaco
traitsui 4.4.0 Abstract GUI toolkit
pyface 4.4.0 Traitsui needs this
enable 4.4.1 Support for Chaco
xlrd 0.9.3 For reading XL spreadsheet
openpyxl 1.8.5 For reading XL spreadsheet
colormath 2.1.1 Latest version
pyper 1.1.1 Python <-> R communication
configparser 3.3.0 Parsing configfile

Moreover, ConsumerCheck uses the R environment for statistical computing. This means you need to have R (> 3.0) installed on your platform. Furthermore, the following R-package needs to be installed:

lmerTest ver 2.0-11

MS Windows and Mac OS X

If you are on MS Window or Mac OS X the easiest way is to install the required Python packages listed above by installing the Anaconda python environment from Continuum Analytics.

Then you have to use the Conda installer to add some additional python packages that are needed for ConsumerCheck. In a Windows PowerShell / Mac terminal type:

conda install chaco

After this, ConsumerCheck can be installed with pip:

pip install consumercheck


The following installation procecure was tested on Debian Jessie 8.2.

On the shell commandline:

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install python-pip python-pandas python-chaco python-qt4-gl python-networkx python-configparser r-base r-cran-lme4 r-cran-numderiv r-cran-hmisc r-cran-gplots r-cran-nloptr r-cran-plyr r-cran-ggplot2

sudo pip install consumercheck

Then you have to start R and run the following commands:

pkgurl <- ""
install.packages(pkgurl, repos=NULL, type="source")

Running ConsumerCheck

ConsumerCheck is started by typing ccgui on the command line.
