Ability of SmartPLS
Inferential statistical analyzes were used in testing the study hypothesis based on a multivariate analysis of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) modeling using SmartPLS or more recognizable as PLS-SEM
PLS-SEM is a complex statistical analysis technique that aims to maximize the explanation of variants independent variables (Hair, Ringle & Sarstedt, 2011)
PLS-SEM also has the ability to perform graphical analysis of paths to show the direct effects of antecedent variables and indirect effects of the effects of intermediate variables. The PLS-SEM assessment shows the measurement of the measurement model and the structural model with regard to parameter stability.
