PLSc Group Comparison

we want to analyze whether there are significant differences between two groups (Germany and USA) for our model. The algorithm has to be consistent PLS (PLSc). My problem is that Multi-Group Analysis (MGA) and Permutation implemented in SmartPLS3 follow the "normal" PLS-Algorithm. I am aware of the possibility to use a moderator variable, but I am also interest in other potential methods to test for significant differences between groups in PLSc. I read among others Klesel et al. (2019) ( ... /citations) and Becker et al. (2018) ( ... _Treatment), but I am not quite sure about the practical implementation in SmartPLS3.

I would really appreciate some advice or hints to effeciently test for differences between groups in PLSc.

Best regards, Lars

The next version 3.2.9, which we are just about to finish and which should be published this year will include PLS-MGA and Permuation also for PLSc.
