    Breakthrough Technologies, this new edition’s up-to-date perspective on QFD reflects

    methodology for implementing QFD, and systematically illuminate powerful linkages
    between QFD and Six Sigma, DFSS, Marketing for Six Sigma (MFSS), and Technology for Six
    Sigma (TFSS). An expanded, start-to-finish case study demonstrates how QFD should
    function from all angles, from design and marketing to technology and service.
