E-Learning for QFD

Short Track with Poster: F2

E-Learning is a significant topic in learning foreign languages and taking various qualifications. The authors have been studying an E-Learning system as a link of the chain of e-TQM research group activities. The research group is financially supported by the "JSA (Japanese Standards Association)". The authors will report a prototype system for beginners to learn QFD.
There are two major problems to be solved. One is how to make an electronic textbook. The XML will be available to describe the contents of QFD. For this purpose, standardizing QFD and its relevant methods is necessary. The other is how to use QFD supporting tool. After learning the knowledge of QFD, learners are expected to apply QFD to various problems. This means that the system should provide a QFD supporting tool. Existing e-Learning systems do not provide tools for utilizing knowledges. The prototype system is designed for learners to make QFD into practice.

Mr. YOSHIKAWA Masanobu received the B.Eng., and M.Eng. degrees in mathematical engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1985 and 1987, respectively. In 1987 he joined the Department of Computer Science at Yamanashi University as a research associate. He is currently a research associate in the Department of
Computer Science and Media Technology at the same university. His current research interests include analysis of network information, e-learning system and decision support system. He is a member of the Society of Instrument and Control Engineering. He is a subleader of the e-TQM research group established and financially supported by the Japanese Standards Association (JSA).
