Sammanfattning: This degree project, conducted at Prevas AB, investigates if there is potential reduced production costs due to a change of material of the casing of a Digital Breathalyzer, with retained product characteristics. Considering the using of the product, 5 materials are presented and compared with respect to mechanical and thermal properties. A material analysis containing a merit value table is made and a new casing made of ABS/PC biocompatible plastic is chosen and redesigned with lowered production costs as a result. Return on Investment (ROI) in years and number of produced pieces is calculated with respect to necessary investments and potential reduced costs. With a production rate of 1000 and 4000 pieces per year the ROI is 11,2 and 2,76 years respectively, and ROI regarding production volume is 11 204 and 11 049 pieces respectively.
