Introduction

Quality Function Deployment Applied Technology 2 Jeanette Griggs Dave Hubbard Quality Function Deployment * Explain the benefits, which you think that quality function deployment can bring to a design team when designing and putting into production, a new product. Quality function deployments or (Q,F,D's) main aim is to clarify the requirements of any project or product that is to be undertaken. Therefore to present the project in a just manner, allowing consumers to see measurable factors in the project or product. As a product designer quality function deployment has a number of benefits. When quality function deployment is used it would allow the product designer to set himself some clear goals through an action plan. Obviously as a product designer it is the consumer that is the important factor in the design of the product. You may have an age range and gender to design for, but with Q,D,F you relate you action plan and goals around the consumer and what their requirements are. If this can be achieved it is more than likely that you will design a product that will match up to the consumers needs first time round thus reducing time and minimising costs. ...read more.

Q,D,F brings teams of workers together. By allowing employees to work side by side or in parallel allows decisions to be made quickly and more accurately reducing errors in design. Communications to all levels becomes more efficient. This breaks down communication barriers between employees. Working in a team will bring employees together foaming a group dynamic. Information and ideas can be exchanged bringing a project together more efficiently and effectively. Brainstorm to show the products, which could have been chosen. Brainstorm to show the chosen product. Reasons for choosing the product requirements * Ease of handling : Cordless drills can be quite heavy and bulky. You sometimes find that they can be top heavy. Cordless drills are also used for a number of different uses such as drilling through different materials or simply using the drill as a screwdriver. Because the drill ahs more than one use it is important that the handling is made easy to aid in all the situations the drill is required for. * Ease of changing drill bits : Drills aren't just used to drill one size of hole. ...read more.

Conclusion

These are important questions that need to be answered * Resistance to impact : Drills can be thrown around. As a tool the drill may find itself in conditions where by it may be knocked of a table for example. All the inside motors of the drill need to be protected so the outside shell will need some sort of impact resistance. * Safety : The drill will have to meet up with some standards some of those being safety standards. If the drill does not meet these requirements then the product will not make it to the shops floor. * Ease of replacing batteries : Because the drill is cordless the power source comes from a battery. When it runs out it needs to be removed from the drill so it can be charged. If the user has problems trying to remove the battery they will not be able to charge the battery rendering the drill useless. Therefore it would be easier if the batteries were attached to the drill and the drill could be charged without the removal of the batteries.
