We often receive inquiries regarding QFD software. There are many who want something that one can just dump whatever data into and get perfect answers out—without using one's brain.
Sorry, there is no such software that will keep your company unique and competitive.
While there are many uses for matrices (knowledge management, for example), virtually all of so-called 'QFD software' that are available for sale or free download have these serious flaws:
Do you still want to rely on software to do a QFD project for you or teach you QFD—when both you and the software creator never had proper QFD training? Think about it, how smart is it?
QFD tools and techniques continue to advance, as evidenced by the new ISO 16355. So are your business model and market conditions. Being fixed in one cookie-cutter approach is a recipe for failure. In fact, international QFD experts and researchers have tested many of the so-called QFD software, including free online download. Their findings, presented in the International Symposium on QFD, concluded that none of the software products were useful and that many were dead wrong about QFD basics.
For this reason, most QFD experts today use the MS Excel Modern QFD Templates created by the QFD Institute. It does not require special software installation; it can be used on any computer platforms. These Templates reflect the most up to date Modern QFD methodologies that are essential for the success of your professional projects. The Templates are part of the QFD Belt® Courses and QFD Black Belt® Certificate Courses.
So, before you purchase a commercial QFD software product, we recommend, at least you first attend a public QFD Green Belt® Course to familiarize yourself with good QFD basics so that you will be able to select the best option for your project.
