About QFD Training


Who is QFD Training for?

Quality Function Deployment Training is for anybody hoping to maximize profitability resulting from the design of their service, process, or product. Sometimes, QFD is referred to as the "House of Quality" because its product planning matrices have the shape of a house. In our course, Reno students learn:

QFD Training Course Overview:

QFD training describes Quality Function Deployment - product design 'gone right' transforming customer needs into profit maximized launch plans. Far too often, engineers gather among themselves, and pump out designs with zero input from actual customers. The worst example we've seen was $20M spent on developing a pressure-based uninterruptable power supply system that had no market interest. The engineers thought it was a great idea. And technically it was pretty nifty. Unfortunately, nobody wanted to buy it, and it was a complete waste of shareholder dollars. To avoid mistakes like this, our students learn a structured approach to capturing customer needs and translating them into specific plans to produce products to meet those needs.

Customer Needs. Capturing "voice of the customer" (VOC) through direct discussion or interviews, surveys, focus groups, customer specifications, observation, warranty data, field reports, etc.

Product Planning. Constructing a matrix to translate general customer "what's" into more specific engineering "how's" being product requirements or technical characteristics to satisfy the needs.

Part Deployment. Cascading assembly-level requirements down to the component level.

Process Planning. Evaluating candidate manufacturing processes and choosing processes to make each part.

Quality Control. Defining process control plans to assure retention of capability throughout each part's production.

Biggest Little City

Excellent choice! Reno's recent growth is from attracting large manufacturing, logistics, and data companies. Examples include Tesla's Gigafactory 1, Apple, Amazon, Google, Switch, Blockchains, Jet.com, eBay, and Wal-Mart. While corporate expansion makes Reno a good city for work-related QFD Training, it is also rich with recreational options. Mt. Rose is a popular snow skiing resort. Pyramid Lake is known for fishing; in-fact, its home to the world's largest Lahontan cutthroat trout. Rock hounders scour local hills in search of quartz and amethyst.

Steve was one of the great managers that I was fortune to work with and from whom I learned many of my improvement techniques. He was my Master Black Belt in 6 Sigma. I contribute much of my success to him for teaching me the first steps along my journey to excellence. His encouragement and leading by example continue to be the guidance for many of my engineering projects. Many great managers and engineers are his students and receive the benefit from his training.
