  • Samah Abu-Assab

They view the two methods QFD and conjoint analysis “as complementary approaches that should be conducted simultaneously,” in which each method’s result supports the other. They concluded that QFD and conjoint analysis provide two “different lenses” that combine the product developers and the marketers in producing new or improved product (Pullman et al. 2002, p. 354).
