QFDcapture Professional Edition
The QFD Decision Modeler
QFDcapture Professional Edition is an indispensable
tool for any planning process, from basic to complex. The software has a decision
model focus (the Roadmap), rather than a single House of Quality (HoQ) focus. Having
a decision model focus means you can set up and interlink a collection of lists,
matrices, and documents to construct a decision making model for your project. This
decision making model can be high level (a single HoQ) or detailed (many HoQs cascaded
from one to another) or something in-between.
A QFDcapture model enables you to collect, analyze and manage qualitative data to
give you an accurate definition of your competition space, your customer expectations
and the needs of your business. The model will also:
- Help you develop a prioritized list of what customers expect to see in your products,
services or strategies
- Help you translate customer expectations into specifications your designers can
understand and act on
- Help you develop an ordered list of what steps your company must take to satisfy
- Help you plan products, services or strategies with fewer mid-point corrections

Enhanced Quality Function Deployment (EQFD)
is a broader QFD framework that applies a system perspective recognizing the need
to decompose more complex products into subsystems and assemblies with supporting
deployment matrices and concept selection matrices.
Four Phase QFD
cascades customer requirements through four HoQ matrices: 1) Product Planning; 2)
Part Planning; 3) Process Planning; 4) Production Planning to translate customer
requirements into product and process design targets.
