In the interest of serving the Philippine industries, ADMATEL of DOST-ITDI is determined in finding more effective and much faster means of solving issues in the industries through S&T. Its pilot R&D, in partnership with DOST-ASTI, the Intelligent Data Analysis System (IDAS) became a very effective tool to conduct multivariate analyses on material fingerprints and to produce kinetic stability models. IDAS is a web-based software that was developed to provide a rapid and innovative profiling technique that reveals the history of materials and substances, processes they possibly underwent, and the probability of causing them their current chemical state or properties. This provides more information on impurities, production methods, and sources of materials, hence interrelations among samples were prominently revealed. IDAS’ enhanced flexibility and robustness was made very useful both for scientific and non-scientific numerical datasets. Several performance testing procedures were applied to ensure the validity of results produced by the system. IDAS Software V1.0 was also made ready to serve industrial needs as its innovative design strengthens failure and defect analyses of materials, as well as advanced characterization and profiling of substances in the perspectives of quality assurance and quality control.
