Evaluation by Target Groups
The new evaluation system developed by ExtraEnergy, the so-called Quality Function Deployment Method (QFD), was presented at the LEV Conference in Taipei in March 2008. The QFD assumes different target groups have different needs. With the aid of a counting system, the tested bikes satisfying these needs are analyzed and evaluated. The method is supposed to be used first for the analysis of the Spring 2010 test results.
