A Turbo-Charged Four-Cylinder Engine Brand Sound Quality Development: A Wholistic Approach 2023-01-1148

This paper introduces a wholistic approach for design and development of a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine system using the Quality Function Deployment (QFD) methodology for target setting. Additionally, an exhaustive comparison is conducted between the current product’s NVH performance and that of the target product to design the required countermeasures to reach the desired performance. The proposed process consists of subsequent phases; starting with the voice of customer collection and organizing customer clinic, definition of strategic target to reach, specifying the gap between the current product’s performance, and setting the desired target levels to design and develop the required enablers to close the gap. The final phase is the demonstration of the current product with emulated enablers to the stakeholders.
