This report presents about the design and fabrication of stark whiteboard which the improvement is focus on the aspect of stability, mobility and manufacturing cost. Whiteboard acts as an important equipment in human life especially used in education, meeting purpose and instant messaging. However, its mobility and stability do not always satisfy by its user due to the difficulty in controlling the movement when transport from a place to another. In this project, concept is generated through research on existing product in order to improve its limitation. The major material used in fabricating the product is mild steel hollow bar. It fabricates using three whiteboards and four castors. Besides, a mini stage is attached to the product to improve its performance. SolidWorks Simulation Xpress software is used for structure analysis in order to identify the maximum load the product can support without deformation. The analysis conducted in three aspects, which are stress analysis, displacement analysis and factor of safety analysis. Methods and processes involved in this project include joining using MIG welding, making hole with drilling method, bending using profile bending machine and bending machine and also cutting using shearing machine. The idea of design and fabrication for this whiteboard is based on student’s creativity.
