LEAN THINKING (EBUS507)
Re-Sit Assignment No. 1 – Replacement for Lean Game Assignment
Brief : The following matrix represents a section of the application of the quality function deployment (QFD) technique to a vehicle rear-view mirror. The customer requirements are ‘easy to adjust’, ‘clear vision’, ‘easy to tell distance’ and ‘easy to clean’. These requirements are rated in terms of customer- perceived importance on a scale of 1 to 5. A scale of 1 to 5 is also used to create the customer competitive assessment. In this case ‘1’ corresponds to very bad performance and ‘5’ corresponds to a very good performance.

The target values for the identified technical characteristics are also provided. The design competitive assessment is similar to the customer competitive assessment. Again, a scale of 1 to 5 is used.
