Display optimal configuration to each respondent at the end of conjoint

After each respondent goes through CBC , is there a way to display his optimal configuration at the end and asking his/her likelihood to purchase?

When I have to do this sort of thing I usually use best-worst case 2 scaling rather than CBC.  With BW-2 we can use MaxDiff on-the-fly utility estimation to get a good idea about the ideal product for each individual respondent, so we can tailor the purchase intention question.  

Our ACBC software also has a way to do this for you.  

But I don't know how you'd do it with CBC - perhaps with a tournament type follow-up to the CBC, but then it's only the favorite product among those shown to a respondent and not the respondent's globally optimal product.

Hi Keith,

yes, we would like to display the favorite product among those shown to a respondent, not the globally optimal product. How can I set it up a tournament type follow-up to the CBC?

That's going to involve some custom coding, as it's not an "out of the box" functionality of the software.  This is something I would hand off to one of my expert programmers, not something I would do myself, so I cannot answer.  You may want to repost that exact question to the Forum to see if someone who does it can answer for you.
