In the modern era of manufacturing, it is important to optimize every design parameter in product development stage to reduce cost, material usage and to achieve the desired efficacy level. There are various models which serve those purposes, for instance, Design of Experiment (DoE) is used to check the parameters after adopting optimization tactics which results in reduced cost or saving operating time. In this regard, this research aims to construct a DoE model on a portable workstation to optimize its design parameters. The methodology of DOE would be a 2 level 3 factors full factorial DOE which is conducted to determine the optimal value for three design parameters (factors) which are material density, the length of the table and the length of the table stand in terms of the response which is the required time of fold ability function of the portable workstation. Based upon the evaluated interactions between the parameters, the optimized parameters are chosen for responses. Here, the resultant design parameters are at their lowest level, so the goal of time efficiency in fold ability function is achieved. This similar sort of DoE can be implemented in the furniture and other manufacturing industries who wish to optimize their material usage as well as increase efficiency and reduce cycle time.
