About this item

This book presents the implementation of Quality Function Deployment (QFD) in the construction industry as a tool to assist building designers to achieve optimal decisions for external envelope systems with sustainable and buildable design goals. Specifically, the book integrates special features into the conventional QFD tool to enhance its performance. These features include a fuzzy multi-criteria decision-making method, fuzzy consensus scheme, and Knowledge Management System (KMS). This integration results in a more robust decision support tool presented in this book known as the Knowledge-based Decision Support System QFD (KBDSS-QFD) tool. As an example, the KBDSS-QFD tool is used for the assessment of building envelope materials and designs of high-rise residential buildings in Singapore in the early design stage. This book serves to provide the reader with a conceptual framework for understanding the development of the KBDSS-QFD tool. The framework is presented in a generalized form so that it benefits building professionals, decision makers, analysts, academics and researchers when they adopt the findings in the proposed book as guiding principles to achieve more optimal solutions in an efficient and collegial manner.
