The principle of Value Engineering is applied to make an innovative product that can help the public and the environment. Value Engineering is a technique in which the value of a system’s output is optimized by improving the function or reducing the cost. Innovation is the application or creation of new product to satisfy new requirements and market needs. Wood has been an important construction material since humans began building shelters. It has always been used extensively for furniture, such as chairs, tables and beds. But there will come a time that the consumption of woods is more than the amount of trees that are growing back. For these purpose a composite board that can be an alternative to wood using waste to reduce the need to consume natural resources is created. The coconut coir fibers, plastic resin, and hardener are used as the materials for the composite board. In order to come up with the product, the techniques including coir pounding and washing, mold waxing, molding, pressing, drying, and polishing were executed. Upon completion of the project, a naturally wood looking product is manufactured because of the coir strands which even made the product stronger than ordinary plywood.
