Executive Summary The objective of this project is to determine if the production of a ceramic oxide membrane unit for separating oxygen from air is a profitable alternative to the production of oxygen storage units. Design was based on the requirements of the 30 million Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) sufferers, for whom the unit is designed to help. The unit must be portable, provide adequate battery life, and provide 95% oxygen at a minimum of 5 Liters/minute. In addition, the unit was compared to leading competitors in the market that produced portable oxygen concentrators that yield 5 L/min flow rates. These competitors are the Inogen One, Airsep Lifestyle, and Airsep Freestyle. Based on economic analysis, it is necessary to have a happiness function near 0.75 to be profitable,
