Abstract—Nowadays, the green manufacturing that relates to the environmental issues is growing and spreading into many aspects of industry. This issue is pushing every industry to increase their awareness of the environmental issues by developing and creating environmentally friendly products. The acceptance of products is based on quality as well as environmental performance. This means that to be competitive in the global market, the quality of products should meet the customer needs and also the environmental requirements. This paper proposes the integration of environmental requirements into Quality function deployment (QFD) methodology for designing and creating eco-friendly products. In this paper fuzzy logic is employed in conjunction with house of quality (HOQ) for integration into QFD to achieve this aim.
Index Terms—Environmentally friendly product, quality function deployment, fuzzy logic, house of quality.
