    What is QFD? Are you talking Function Point Analysis?

    Re: application of QFD

    The concept of QFD was introduced in Japan by Yoji Akao in 1966. By 1972 the power of the approach had been demonstrated and in 1978 the first book on the subject was published in Japanese. Unfortunately, for those of us who do not read Japanese, it was not translated into English until 1994 (Mizuno and Akao, 1994).

    According to Akao (1990), QFD "is a method for developing a design quality aimed at satisfying the consumer and then translating the consumer's demand into design targets and major quality assurance points to be used throughout the production phase. ... [QFD] is a way to assure the design quality while the product is still in the design stage." As a very important side benefit, Akao (1990) points out that, when appropriately applied, QFD has demonstrated the reduction of development time by one-half to one-third.

    Re: application of QFD

    Never heard of it. But it looks interesting. I wonder if there are any references to its use with small systems. Most of the biblio deals with large systems, which won't help me with my "internet time" developed apps.
