As the functional requirements for odor evaluation methods differ according to the application purpose, not only is the selection of an adequate evaluation method important but so is its application to the corresponding purpose to appropriately conduct odor management. In this paper, odor evaluation methods were first divided and categorized according to the technical functions and application purposes. Emphasis was placed on the importance of “simplification” of the evaluation method to efficiently carry out odor management. Finally, it was proposed that an application concept using simplified odor evaluation methods, such as odor sensor systems including electric noses, detection tubes and basic olfactory measurements, should be designed to cost-effectively control odor problems.
