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, Texas students learn:

QFD Training Course Overview:

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 Texas 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.

The Lone Star State - Don't Mess With Texas

Each possesses its own advantages. For example, Houston is an excellent opportunity to network with oil and gas professionals. Combined, the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex is a massive area full of aerospace companies. The US Postal Service also has a substantial presence in Dallas. Austin is a fun city with mostly tech. San Antonio is a famous Toyota location. Although perhaps less known, HEB is huge there along with several banks. Galveston is cool because it's on the Gulf Coast. And some of our classes sail from there on cruise ships. Yep, you read that right. Check it out. Texan cuisine is founded on BBQ, chicken fried steak, chili, fried okra, tex mex, brisket tacos, tortilla soup, Dr. Pepper, frozen margaritas, and pecan pie. Consider a native blue topaz souvenir with stones harvested exclusively from Mason County streambeds and ravines.

Our GD&T instructor was good at taking what could otherwise have been a boring topic and figuring out how to teach it in a way that helps you learn it.
