Risks and challenges

We do not want to see a good idea executed out of sorts. We know that there are some risks in bringing this project to life.

- Technical risks: It is unlikely that we will face technical risk because we have probed that the preliminary test will work. All the features of the printer and software are already in other equipment and software in the market.
- Commercial Risks: The commercial viability of the project has been studied and there is a high demand and an existing market for this new system in the personalised medicines sector.
- Regulatory risk: This entire project is focused on introducing a validated system in pharmacy. The pharmacy sector is a highly regulated market, but there are currently no specific regulations for the types of printer that we want to create. We maintain constant vigilance of the appropriate regulations and industry developments and maintain a running dialogue with regulators to identify potential areas of concern/mitigation.

The FabRx team has a thorough experience in the area of risk management and in projects management. We identify risks, mechanisms, likelihood of occurrence and the severity of potential impacts. Risks are evaluated, scored and ranked, then mitigation strategies are developed and implemented.

Risk Management Structure: As part of the structure and operation of project management, FabRx and the hardware/software suppliers will have regular meetings to monitor progress.
