“Gamat” is a marine life that usually lives in the cracks of the rocks. It is able to cure many diseases. Because of that, “Gamat” oil has been produced and bottled in treating minor injuries, joint pain and as massage oil. Problems detected when “Gamat” oil customer find it difficult to open the inner cap oil bottle when they want to use it. The hole should be made in advance to enable the oil to be used. The inner cap has also contributed to the increase in time during the process of filling and bottling the “Gamat” oil. This problem has given the opportunity to design and develop a new design of ”Gamat” oil bottle that meet the needs of customers and manufacturer of “Gamat” oil. The data obtained from interview and observation methods. Product specifications and Quality Function Deployment (QFD) have been implemented for the purpose of measure and comparison existing products. Several concepts were developed and the concept screening and scoring were applied. The best concept was chosen and technical drawings were made by using CATIA software. Besides that, several analyses were done in order to achieve the objective for this project. The selection material and processing was conducted by using DFM. Finite element analysis was shown the capability of the part when forces is applied on it. The model was also generated to indicate the actual design of the “Gamat” oil bottle. Weaknesses of the products identified and recommendations were made for improvement of the product in the future.
