  • Patent number: 10871888
    Abstract: A computer system for optimizing a coating formulation through a user interface processes spectrometric data through a probabilistic colorant analysis. The probabilistic colorant analysis generates a set of colorants that are each associated with a calculated probability that the associated colorant is present within a target coating. The system identifies a proposed group of colorants from within the set of colorants that are associated with the highest calculated probabilities of being present within the target coating. The system displays on a graphical user interface an indication of each colorant within the proposed group of colorants. The system receives input through one or more selectable interface elements that define a user-defined group of colorants selected from the proposed group of colorants. The system generates a coating formulation, wherein the coating formulation is generated from the user-defined group of colorants.
