I share your sadness in the passing away of Prof. Yoji Akao a great Sensei who made outstanding contribution to the knowledge of quality management.

It is unfortunate Prof. Yoji Akao passed away in October 2016 but his legacy will last for as long as QFD is used for developing new products and that sure will be for a long time. It is a privilege for me in offering our homage to the memory of Prof. Yoji Akao on behalf of the Academy.
