Novel, fast and objective sensor technologies offer great potential for the industry to assess the quality of each product produced, and simultaneously monitor the underlying process. The generated data are often of a complex (multivariate) nature, requiring advanced methods to turn them into valuable information. Although many scientific reports are produced showing the added value of these sensors in combination with multivariate methods such as Principal Component Analysis, Partial Least Squares and derived techniques, we see that the implementation rate is still low. In this talk we will touch upon several reasons for this low adoption rate with a focus on quality control in the agrofood industry where biological variability and spatio-temporal behavior dominates. Several case studies will be used and remedies aimed at increasing the industrial adoption rate are presented.
