QFD has proven to foster customer-oriented design of products and services in almost any industry and country. QFD is integral part of any Six Sigma initiative, of Agile Software Development methods, of product and service improvements. However it is not only the design itself that makes the success of QFD. It is the process and the underlying paradigm. QFD-based designs go far beyond short-term facelifts. Long-term value and sound product development processes are the keys for sustainable success. The 17th International QFD conference will highlight, explain and develop sustainable development of products and services with QFD.

In conjunction with ISQFD'11 the QFD-ID Innovation price 2011 has been awarded. The QFD-ID Innovation price honors scientific works for their outstanding contribution to the development  of QFD. Now the winners have been announced:

The 17th international Symposium on QFD, September, 21st - 23rd 2011, took place in Stuttgart, Europe's leading high-tech region and Germany's strongest commercial metropolitan area. The Symposium is arranged by QFD-Institut Deutschland e.V. in collaboration with the International Council for Quality Function Deployment (ICQFD), the Universität Stuttgart and the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing and Automation, IPA.
