Risks and challenges

For this project in particular I would say things that could hold up a timely delivery would be due to a large order quantity and difficulty fulfilling a large order. Another possibility would be my manufacturer breaks a machine, the machining quality is rejected, or run out of raw material which will delay production.

As soon as this project meets it's funding goal I will start a first batch production early before the end of the campaign to get a head start on manufacturing. Then if order quantities get large enough I will need to enlist the help of a fulfillment agency to package, label, and ship the product.
