Modular Function Deployment (MFD) is a method, which is based on the well-known Quality Function Deployment (QFD) method. The QFD is more and more used because of its orientation on customer requirements on technical products. It is assumed as one of the best Total Quality Management (TQM) method. The goal of QFD is to ensure optimal fulfillment of customer requirements on a single product only. The MFD enables above to ensure the same task by optimal modular product or maybe its part composed only from the selected modules if required. This is considerably more effective both for the producer and the customer.
