This paper focuses on the role of two concepts for product and process development. They are Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and the Design of Experiments (DOE). The two philosophies are often used independently to achieve specific targets within various domains of interest. QFD is an effective tool that is used to systematically identify and define the key technical targets starting from the knowledge of the overall customer requirements/complaints. DOE, on the other hand, is a tool that is used to identify the effect of multiple factors on a specific product characteristic. The results from this tool are often used to find the best values of a combination of the different factors that affect the product characteristic.
This paper presents a strategy of interfacing the two tools of QFD and DOE to perform the following:
The aforementioned ideas are constructed and presented based on a detailed review of the available literature.
Keywords: Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Design of Experiments (DOE), New Product Introduction (NPI)
