Abstract [en]

This project report covers how to perform a structured product development process. The process involves several steps in which different methods and tools are used.

The purpose of the project is to develop a gymshaker in order to make the company, Emballator Mellerud Plast AB, competitive on the gymshaker market. The main goal of this project has been to present a viable proposal for a physical prototype of the product.

The product development process starts, in this report, with opportunity identification and ends with a prototype of the product. Methods that are used throughout the process are for example; structured requirement lists with metrics and values, concept generation by exploring different sources, concept selection through different selection tools and computer-aided design modelling.

A final model of the gymshaker was not officially made, but a preliminary model and drawing were made.

In conclusion, structured documentation was important throughout the whole process to ensure that every solution was preserved and to be able to reflect thoroughly. The product development process resulted in a prototype of a gymshaker with only three components, the cap (two-parted) and the body. The shaker will be a low cost product considering the few components and the material cost
