Felix Schönhofen

My name is Felix Schönhofen. I was born on November 26th 1986 in the city of Stuttgart in the south of Germany. Following studies of mechanical engineering and technically oriented business administration (M.Sc.) I got the opportunity to work as a research assistant at the Chair of Information Systems II of Prof. Dr. Georg Herzwurm at the University of Stuttgart.

From the early beginning I got a fan of the method Quality Function Deployment, founded by Dr. Akao back in the 1960s, and brought to the Software Industry by Georg Herzwurm and my colleague Sixten Schockert.

Beside the methodical development of software and software-intensive products using Quality Function Deployment, I’m interested in Software Platforms and Ecosystems.
