SmartPLS

SmartPLS is one of the leading software tools for partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). It helps researches to carry out

  

                                ·         Partial least squares (PLS) path modeling algorithm (including consistent PLS)

 

                                ·         Ordinary least squares regression based on sumscores

 

                                ·         Advanced bootstrapping options
