Which algorithms and procedures does SmartPLS offer?

More details are available in the documentation section of our website.

SmartPLS lets you run the latest algorithms, tests, and analyses:

  • Partial least squares (PLS) path modeling algorithm including consistent PLS (PLSc)
  • Ordinary least squares regression based on sumscores
  • Sample weighted data estimation
  • Advanced bootstrapping options
  • Discriminant validity testing using HTMT
  • Several new PLS fit measures
  • Blindfolding
  • Hierarchical component models (second-order models)
  • Mediation
  • Moderation (interaction effects)
  • Nonlinear relationships (e.g. quadratic effect)
  • Importance-performance matrix analysis (IPMA)
  • Multi-group analysis (MGA)
  • Permutation-based multi-group analysis
  • Measurement invariance assessment (MICOM)
  • Confirmatory tetrad analysis (CTA)
  • Finite mixture (FIMIX) segmentation
  • Prediction-oriented segmentation (POS)
  • and more...

SmartPLS makes your life easier by offering various usability features:

  • Runs on Windows and on Mac OSX
  • Customizable style of our path model (e.g. colors, font size, etc.)
  • Copying and saving a picture of your PLS path model as .png, .jpg or .svg file
  • Convenient Excel and HTML export of results
  • Easy project management by the project explorer
  • Import and export of projects
  • Usage of multiple projects and data files
  • Various descriptive statistics of your data (mean value, standard deviation, skewness, excess kurtosis, etc.)
  • Different missing value treatment options
  • and more...
