Meaning and definition of quality function deployment (qfd) :


Quality Function Deployment (QFD)—A visual decision-making procedure for multi-skilled project teams which develops a common understanding of the voice of the customer (customer “wants”) and a consensus on the final engineering specifications of the product that has the commitment of the entire team. QFD integrates the perspectives of team members from different disciplines, ensures that their efforts are focused on resolving key trade-offs in a consistent manner against measurable performance targets for the product and deploys these decisions through successive levels of detail (the “hows”). The use of QFD eliminates expensive backflows and rework as projects near launch.
