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, Austin 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.

Silicon Hills - Keep Austin Weird

Excellent choice! Austin was recommended to serve as the capital due to the area's pleasant hills, waterways, and convenience as a crossroads between Galveston, Santa Fe, Mexico, and the Red River. A capital building and granite dam were built to power a street car line. Parks were established. The Texas Oil Boom happened. High-tech semiconductor manufacturing and higher education evolved. Music become prominent. And, Austin has flourished becoming America's 11th, and Texas' 4th largest city by population, and one of America's fastest-growing large cities. As such, many fun after-class options exist including the 6th Street bar scene, music festivals, ballet, museums, the LBJ Presidential Library, shopping, a massive bat colony, and Lake Travis.

Six sigma training experience exceeded my expectations. The course was easy to understand, and the Material was written for a novice, with practice example from our office. I had some problems with MiniTab, however, the help I received from our Master Black Belts was great and helped me a lot. This has been a great and valuable experience that helped me understand all topics related with this methodology. He showed lot of tools, templates and information that you will definitely use lots.
