Insight: We found an alternative solution to the water tank, reducing the cost of the water tank area by around 80%. Exploring alternative manufacturing methods and materials can reduce the BOM significantly during the early development stage.

Insight: We had a water spout leaking issue. We explored several expensive fixes but I discovered looping of ducting solved the issue. Simple is best.

Challenge: Developing a product whilst at the same time developing a team and working environment within a foreign country.

Solution: We delivered a working proof of design prototype with significant cost reduction innovations over the original concept.
