Quality function deployment (QFD) is a method to

  • transform user demands into design quality,
  • to deploy the functions forming quality, and
  • to deploy methods for achieving the design quality into subsystems and component parts, and
  • ultimately to specific elements of the manufacturing process..

QFD was developed in Japan in 1966 by Dr. Yoji Akao.
