Ranking Customer Needs Once the customer needs have been compiled, numerical importance rankings must be established. A design team should take care, however, because the typical customer population will be multi-modal, with segments that have different importance weightings. Multi-modal populations present systems-level choices about which product options to offer. Methods for designing a product family to meet such demands is a subject of active research (Ref 12, 13). A traditional approach to rating customer needs is to compare the number of subjects who mention a need to the total number of subjects.

What characteristics/properties must the product not have? What aspects of the design task can and should be quantified? Do any biases exist in the chosen task statement or terminology? Has the design task been posed at the appropriate level of abstraction? What are the technical and technological conflicts inherent in the design task? It is surprising how often a great deal of time (and money) are wasted because no one took time at the front end of a project to really understand the problem. To obtain this understanding, the design of any product or service must begin with a complete understanding of the customers' needs, as discussed in the section "Understanding and Satisfying the Customer" in this article.
