Axiomatic Design Quality 2006-01-1204

In this paper, the Axiomatic Quality method is introduced in terms of three sequential phases: The Customer Attributes-to-FRs mapping phase, the Conceptual design For Capability (CDFC) phase and the Optimization phase. The objective of the CDFC phase is to assure conceptual robustness by eliminating or reducing the coupling vulnerability. The execution of a CDFC project phase will give the design team the maximum design controllability and adjustability leverage. The objective of the Optimization phase is to address operational vulnerability through several techniques to release the design at Six-Sigma level in all of its requirements. Several interfaces to integrate axiomatic design and robust design are presented. Mathematical derivations are derived to strengthen the Axiomatic Quality framework. The integration framework also facilitates a new Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) road map with a Six Sigma design quality level is pursued as an objective. The axiomatic quality framework presented in this paper represents a stream of development to achieve excellence by improving customer satisfaction through quality enhancement efforts. It can be viewed, as an integration framework to cast a complete understanding of how to achieve desired design breakthroughs.
