Abstract

This article proposes improvements for Quality Function Deployment to support new product launches, when the emphasis must shift from planning to reacting. QFD can also be used as a reacting tool by expanding it to generate a Process Troubleshooting Guide. This Guide can provide a traditional IV House that prevents countless problems from occurring and a reactive IV House that assists in the efficient resolution of the problems that do occur.
