Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge will be getting bullet proof logistics setup. This includes manufacturing, inspection, quality control, packaging, shipping to a warehouse (hopefully Amazon), and then fulfilling orders to backers. We plan to overcome this issue of logistics by working with industry professionals who really know the ins and outs of product logistics and who can negotiate fair prices throughout the supply chain. We have talked to some people about this already but this is critical to our success and we are making sure we only consider people we truly trust and that have a proven track record.
Please note the Straprack you see here is a prototype and because of this, small tweaks and changes may be required to make mass production easier in terms of quality, manufacturability, and to limit rejections. One such example of this is the "U" shaped bend in the pull up bar. Because there is a hole right in the middle of the "U" shape for a bolt, we have been told by manufactures that controlling the bends and the placement of the hole in that location can be difficult to repeat easily in mass production. One way we have discussed getting around this issue is to make that "U" shaped pull up bar straight instead. This could be a final production change we may need to incorporate in order to improve the quality.
Thank you for embarking on this journey with us and rest assured our top priority will always be the quality of the Straprack!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
