A methodology of integrating the functions of engineering design and manufacturing in a production environment is described. A hybrid approach using quality function deployment (QFD) and multi‐objective optimisation techniques is developed. The purpose of this methodology is to alleviate the problem of uni‐directional flow of information and to eliminate the subjective decision making of the QFD approach.
