WSD - Revolutionizing Baby Bottle Care: Integrated Washer-Sterilizer-Dryer
In today's fast-paced world, parents often struggle to find the time to effectively clean and sterilize baby bottles, a task that is crucial for the health and well-being of their infants. This case study explores the development of a prototype-product, the Integrated Washer-Sterilizer-Dryer (WSD), which aims to address the needs of parents by providing a comprehensive solution for cleaning and preparing baby bottles.
The WSD combines the operations of washing, sterilising and drying baby bottles to automatically prepare baby bottles for use. The main benefit is convenience, coupled with timesaving and confidence that the washing is done well. In line with the strategic objectives, the top-level objective of this project is to prepare for a successful market launch of this highly innovative product. An innovation that is set to define a new product category in the market of baby related products, namely integrated Washer-Steriliser-Dryers (WSD).
The market for baby bottle sterilizers has been growing steadily over the years, with electric steam sterilizers gaining popularity due to their efficiency. However, the process of washing baby bottles remains a time-consuming and challenging task for parents. Currently, there are no products on the market that combine the operations of washing, sterilizing, and drying baby bottles. This presents a significant opportunity for the introduction of an innovative product, the WSD, which fills this gap in the market.
The primary objective of this project is to prepare for the successful market launch of the WSD. By providing a convenient, time-saving, and efficient solution for cleaning baby bottles, the WSD aims to create a new product category within the baby-related products market. The key strategic objectives include:
a) Develop an integrated washer-sterilizer-dryer prototype that meets the highest standards of cleanliness and safety for baby bottles.
b) Optimize the product design for user-friendliness, ease of operation, and aesthetic appeal.
c) Conduct rigorous testing and validation procedures to ensure the product's performance and reliability.
d) Create a comprehensive marketing and communication strategy to educate and engage the target audience.
Product Development Process
