Blindfolding in SmartPLS 3

Post by marta »

I have just started using SmartPLS 3 and I'm comparing some results with the ones got by using PLS-Graph. Everything is OK and SmartPLS 3 is great but I have a problem related to the blindfolding procedure. I have been reading in previous posts that there were some kind of problems related to the blindfolding procedure in former versions of SmartPLS and I would like to know why the result of Blindfolding procedure is different in PLS-Graph and SmartPLS 3. In have run the algorithm applying different methods related to the omission distance but nothing has changed.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me on this regard.

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.
