House of Quality template
QFD Quality Functional Deployment Matrix
QFD software with all the power and familiarity of Microsoft Excel
Purposes of a QFD quality function deployment tool
The first thing to notice about the Systems2win QFD template
is that it can be huge or tiny —
easily scaling to the size you need...
Your QFD Excel template for quality function deployment
can analyze up to 50 customer demands, 50 performance measures, and as many as 4 customer segments and 5 competitors on a single chart — and you can easily copy additional charts to analyze unlimited performance measures for unlimited customer segments and unlimited competitors.
The House of Quality template includes everything that a
seasoned Six Sigma Black Belt would expect,
as well as Kano Analysis, unlimited user-defined columns and rows, and all of the power of Excel and Systems2win's Personalization Upgrade Utility to personalize your deployment tool just the way you like it.
A competitive analysis graphic chart is instantly drawn for the customer segments and competitors that you choose from the drop down menus — graphically illustrating how your offering stacks up against each competitor for each target customer group for each of your unlimited customer demands.
Click a cell in the top of the house to highlight the correlated columns.
Choose the type of correlation from the dropdown menu
With the click of a button...
- Resize the number of rows and columns
and it automatically re-sizes the top of the house!
Supports all 4 phases of QFD
With the click of a button...
- Generate a new sheet for the next phase of QFD
- Auto-populates the rows of the next sheet with the data from the columns of the previous one
- Re-labels the rows and columns — with correct pop-up help
- Correctly removes the elements that are not relevant to the next phase
(e.g. competitor analysis, top of house...)
Like all Systems2win templates — this is more than a fill-in-the-blanks
template with excellent pop-up help whenever you click any row or column
Like all Systems2win templates — the Help worksheet provides excellent introductory training for those just getting started.
And like all Systems2win templates — it provides suggested reading for those that want to take their House of Quality to the next level.

Because it is written using Microsoft Excel, your qfd template can be easily personalized with custom formulas and individualized approaches to all four phases of QFD.
Like every Systems2win Excel template, the House of Quality template is editable and customizable, and comes with a sample page containing extensive online help and online training — so that your Six Sigma team members can devote their valuable time to actually performing QFD analysis and problem solving
rather than " inventing a deployment template"
