The QFD Institute was sanctioned in 1993 by Dr. Yoji Akao, QFD’s co-founder, to research and develop state-of-the-art methods, tools, and training. It is the only dedicated QFD education and advanced research organization in the world.
We are an independent, non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Michigan USA and are by and large operated by volunteers.
