In recent times, enterprises are facing a time competition concurrence. Any enterprise which in the shortest possible time can deliver products which meet customers requirements can win many competitive advantages.
Three dimensional concurrent engineering is an operation management method based on time competition. It expands concurrent engineering to the supply chain design and improves the operating performances. When elaborating the tradition house of quality there are some defects which occur. This paper proposes a quality functional deployment of three dimensional concurrent engineering by introducing an extended quality functional deployment. Through an extend house of quality, this research transforms customer requirements into product design, the process design and the supply chain design and reduces the time from new product design to product market. It then combines the Extend Quality Function Deployment with the three dimensional concurrent engineering in order to resolve the defects met when elaborating the tradition house of quality. This way, this research helps to satisfy the customer requirements, to improve product quality, to shorten the development cycle of product, to enhance customer response speed and to increase the competition capability of enterprises.
