    Quality Function Deployment is a great tool to help you focus on the Voice of the Customer, deliver what the customer wants, and identify tradeoffs between customer requriements.  See http://healthcare.isixsigma.com/dictionary/Quality_Function_Deployment-305.htm for a description.

    QFD is a very efficient way of eliciting and gathering requirements… As this process involves all the relevant stakeholders, it helps bridge the gap between the understanding of the customers exepctations and the producer developing the product. Even though the process is quite elaborate and comprehensive it does pay back as we end up with very less defects at the requirements stage. And as you all are aware of the thing ” Earlier the defects are captured lesser its gonna cost the producer”.

    I have quiet a lot of examples of QFD that I have done in the past years -mostly related to Sales-and product development. I also have a step by step tool fathering the information previous to the QFD.  If you’re interested, let me know
    Nevertheles, a QFD can only be successfull if all parties are involved.

    Karim,
    I’m not too concerned with the Healthcare aspect as much as just the QFD in general. My work is in manufacturing/electronics and I’ve gone through BB training at my previous company and I’m trying to inspire the folks at my new company so any assistance would be a benefit. My email is : [email protected]
    Thanks,Neil
