DCM

1 diciembre, 2016

Data Converter Module (DCM) is a new R package that converts the dataset format from split into stack 
and to the reverse.

The module has two functionalities STACK and SPLIT.

STACK
In this mode the package receives a matrix where the rows are typically the judges or customers that 
evaluate a product. The first column is the product code, the second column is the ID of the judge and 
the rest of the columns contain the data of the sensory attributes. The program allows replicated data.
The output of the program is a matrix of stacked data; the first column gives the product code, the 
second column the ID of the judge, the third column the name of the attribute and the fourth column the
value provided by the judge. This matrix is given in a csv file.

SPLIT
The input for this functionality is a matrix that has four columns: Product code, ID of a judge, attribute 
name and data.
The output is a matrix where the rows correspond to product code-judge combination and the columns 
provide the sensory characteristics ordered alphabetically or not. This matrix is produced in a csv file.

In both cases stack and split, empty spaces are kept that way.
