Uncovering differences and similarities among Quality Function Deployment based methods in Design for X: benchmarking in different domains
2016 (English)In: Quality Engineering, ISSN 0898-2112, E-ISSN 1532-4222Article in journal (Refereed) Accepted
The ability for a product or a service to meet customer needs and requirements efficiently before its market launch is a key-point in design and development activities. Quality Function Deployment (QFD) represents one of the most powerful design methods to achieve such a goal.This study investigates the QFD-based methods proposed in the last two decades, whose use in different ambits of Design for X (DfX) is reported to be effective.We selected most common QFD based methods, analysing how designers can implement and coordinate them in design activities effectively throughout their application to an identical case study.
