The primary purpose of this project is to investigate the engineering design process and use it to design a disposable water bottle for mass production that is aesthetically pleasing, structurally sound, market appropriate and financially viable. It is the intention that the water bottle, complete with branding, will go on sale in the Australian market.

In the past decade bottled water has grown to become a major seller in the Australian beverage market. With many resources spent on the marketing and sales of a disposable water bottle, this project endeavours to design a bottle tailored to its target demographic from the ground up.
Largely in depth survey research from select focus groups within a target demographic will assure the accuracy of the specifications and the direct relevance to the intended consumer.

An engineering design approach ensures that the bottle will not only be rigorously designed to heavily researched specifications but also computationally tested to guarantee the success of the completed product.
