Risks and challenges

Kim has designed and engineered countless products for clients worldwide. With over 35 years of technology and product development experience, his expertise gives him confidence in Elephant Timer’s success.

That being said, every project has its fair share of challenges. Even though we have had working prototypes for several months, designing for manufacturability is time consuming.

The two most expensive tools are for the injection molding and for ultrasonic welding. If there is an error in our tool designs, a second pass will be needed. We see the likelyhood of this error being low.

Ramping up manufacturing is always another challenge. Luckily, this campaign will give us a sense of demand for the product early on, allowing us to scale our production quantities accordingly. Additionally, we may run into unexpected costs or delays in required product safety certifications.

To guarantee Elephant Timer lives up to its name, it will go through destructive testing to ensure its ruggedness, water resistance, audio quality and battery life.
