I am using for the first time Mass Hunter Profinder and MPP and I have many issues. For example, in many app notes i saw that the order is QUAL-PROFINDER (to find features)-MPP(statistical analysis-PCA etc.), but in other app notes the Mass Profinder is ommited and after Qual follows the MPP. The questions are the following: 1) When do i use both Profinder and MPP? (i think that this is the right software order for data analysis to find a pattern-model from your data)
2) In which cases can i use only MPP after Qual? I think is necessary to find firstly the features (profinder) and then to do the statistical analysis to find for example the principal components for my independent variable (MPP).
