Re: Making use of multiple kernels

Thanks. We the performance should be much better with the latest release. However, PLS-POS is computationally intensive. You may combine FIMIX-PLS and PLS-POS: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.10 ... -64069-3_9

Re: Blindfolding in SmartPLS 3

We have no idea how Blindfolding has been implemented in PLS-Graph and cannot comment on this issue. In SmartPLS, the procedure has been implemented as described in the literature. You may run a little Excel example to check for yourself.

This is not a specific PLS-SEM problem. Just search the general literature on generating survey data and their quality assessment. E.g.: https://www.greenbook.org/marketing-res ... ponse-bias

Re: [HELP!!!!!] PLS and IPA matrix

Sorry for the late response. But the need some clarification here to better address the issues. Does the author ask you not to use PLS-SEM? In that case you need to make a basic decision whether you follow the reviewer or rather defend your method choice. You may find the responses in this topic use...
