How to Create a Multi-Design Project


Multi-design projects serve as tools for conducting comprehensive evaluations across various dimensions. For instance, they prove particularly useful when there's a need to systematically assess different aspects of products. Consider a scenario where the evaluation process involves evaluating the appearance, smell, and taste of multiple products. In such cases, using a multi-design project allows for a structured approach, ensuring each product undergoes thorough examination across all relevant criteria. This article explains how to create multi-design projects in EyeQuestion, highlighting their significance and providing insights into their effective implementation.

Multi-Design Project

The templates for multi-design projects are accessible when creating a new project, located under "Copy of Template > 01. Sensory Templates > Profiling". These templates encompass 2 to 10 design sections. In each section, panellists will initially assess all questions related to the products. Subsequently, they will engage in a 'between design' section, which is not product-specific. Following this, panellists will proceed to evaluate all questions within the subsequent design sections for the products in the project. This process repeats according to the number of designs incorporated into your project.

All designs in a multi design project will be exactly the same. If you generate the design in the design section, all the design questions will follow the same design. You can access the first design by clicking at the arrow icon behind the Design Question 1 . You can also go to the design page and adjust it there. 

In the first design you are able to select the runtime options.

In the following designs the settings will automatically be set to inherit from parent project to ensure that the settings from the first design is always used. It is possible to change the set validation of the design.

Dynamic Design  

This is a template that, for example, can be used for Quality Control. When you want to collect all of your data in one project.
Once the project is deployed you cannot change the design anymore, you then need to create a new project and merge the data afterwards. The dynamic design is a solution for that. Because you can still enter new products to your design once the project is already deployed. You can use the dynamic profiling template and whichever questions you would like to ask.

When you deploy the project and want to add more products afterwards, there is one important reminder that there is always one product per set.
1. Go to the design page and click on products

2. On this page you can add extra products to your design, add the product by blinding code and click the plus icon. If you want to add a description click on the edit icon and here you can change the product properties.
