    Have anyone implemented it in your live project ? If yes, please share the sample and its benefits.

    I’ve used the Pugh method (or adaptations of it) several times. The most important and vexing aspect is to get multiple competing concepts. Generally folks go with their “best shot”, either because they don’t feel that they have sufficient time to detail several alternatives or because they are stuck in their own paradigm of how to solve a problem and can’t see the alternatives.

    Example: Look at the new capless gas filler on Ford vehicles. A lot of Pugh concept analysis was used here.

    I’ve used it to compare several options for re-stocking medical supplies. I also coached design engineers using it to select from among several options, and in a construction environment to select alternate flooring materials.

    I (or more accurately my teams) have used it many times for DMAIC and more so for DFSS projects. In my case we use a specific QFD tool such that the concept selection work flows naturally from either your QFD-I or QFD-II matrix.

    Generally I find working on cross-org/cross-functional that it’s not difficult at all to find multiple competing ideas for a solution so the Pugh-like process we use is great because it takes a lot of the subjectivity off the table and we select based on degree of fit with the stated needs/benefits/features/characteristics/etc. used in the QFD exercise.
