Abstract [en]

In this paper a model based QFD (MB-QFD) is introduced, and the different representations for design analysis of complex systems are discussed. Sensitivity analysis is a useful tool for trade studies and to  achieve an overview of the importance of different aspects of the design. The introduction of an hierarchical aggregated design influence matrix greatly improves the ability to handle large systems. Also an influence matrix of uncertainties is used to trace the impact of uncertainties in the design and to identify hot spots where more effort is needed. Through the QFD "House of quality" it is possible to formulate design objective function in a formal way. Furthermore, functional correlation can be used to analyse coherent and conflicting requirements, and by studying the influence of design parameters on the design objective the most  influential parameters can be selected for optimization. These tools are demonstrated on an aircraft design example.
