We are studying the constraints obtained on transport and acceleration mechanisms of galactic cosmic rays by using statistical tools in combination with the propagation package GALPROP and recent PAMELA data. Using only PAMELA data allows us to avoid inconsistencies between data sets from different experiments, minimise uncertainties on solar modulation parameters, and have a complementary and precise data set on (anti-)matter as well as primary and secondary nuclei over 3 orders of magnitude in energy. This allows us to simultaneously place strong constraints on cosmic-ray propagation and acceleration models. We describe our methodology and present some preliminary results in this paper.
