Abstract

In order to survive in the competitive marketplace, product manufacturers must improve quality and customer satisfaction while reducing costs. This paper describes a new methodology to integrate performance issues, economic concerns, and customer preferences in the concurrent product design process. This method integrates a decision analytic tool with a quality-based design technique to improve decision-making in design. To construct a mathematical model of the design, multiattribute utility analysis is interfaced with Quality Function Deployment. The result is an optimal design with respect to all design attributes: product function, performance, cost, and customer satisfaction.
