Generating the PLS Equations from the Diagram

Post by LouTheBlueGuru » Mon Jul 02, 2007 2:38 am

In older SEM software it was common for the user to input the equations for the SEM model in the format required (e.g. EQS or LISREL) and then get a graphic representation of their model. In later versions it was possible to do the opposite; create the graphical model and then see the equations generated by the model. I have searched on "equations", "PLS equations", "structural equations", etc., and can not seem to find this option in smartPLS. Does such an option exist? If not, it should.

You can write the equations down by inspecting the diagram which will have the coefficients, like in AMOS. Why do you need an option?

It is very convenient. Why not!
