Six Sigma Black Belt: Certified QFD Specialist (Accredited)


This QFD Specialist course is accredited by internationally recognized Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Certification Service (Provider No: 14627, Certificate No: A029014-10).

The AIGPE™ Certified Quality Function Deployment (QFD) Specialist masters the ability to understand customer requirements using the tool Quality Function Deployment. They can systematically translate requirements to the process technical requirements OR engineering characteristics. They play a critical role in constructing detailed and accurate operational definitions of customer requirements. They are also proficient in the planning process of new or redesigned products or services. They develop an innate ability to produce the four houses of Quality.

Each certification candidate must

  1. Go through the AIGPE™ Quality Function Deployment Specialist Certification Training and
  2. Pass an examination that consists of multiple-choice questions that measure comprehension of the Body of Knowledge.

If a customer is buying an Air-Conditioner, will he inform the Manufacturer that the Air-Conditioner should give a cooling of 16 to 22 degrees Celsius? If he is buying a car, will he ever inform the Manufacturer that he needs a car that has a mileage of 42 km per liter?

As you can see, the Customer Requirements are always hazy. Although the Customer may think he Knows What he Wants, he Doesn’t have the Technical or Engineering Specifications of Communicating exactly What he Wants. This conversion of Customer Requirements into Technical or Engineering Specifications is the job of this tool: The Quality Function Deployment (popularly known as QFD). QFD is a unique tool and has a structured approach to identify these requirements. Due to its complexity, this tool is generally only used in Six Sigma Black Belt Projects. Although, I have seen a few Green Belts use this tool in their Six Sigma projects too. There is also enough scope of using this tool as a standalone technique without being dependent on a Six Sigma project.

There is limited material available on the internet that can explain the tool in a simple, easy to understand and an engaging way. By virtue of this course, we have simplified the usage of this tool into 7 Easy Steps. Irrespective of whether you want to deploy QFD in a Lean or a Six Sigma Green Belt / Black Belt project OR if you want to use it as a standalone tool, this course will help you to effectively construct the Quality Function Deployment (QFD) in 7 Easy Steps.
