Risks and challenges
As an established manufacturer, PowerHunt is well suited to incorporate potential risks into a production schedule. A generation of experience mitigates the possibility of unscheduled surprises. World class sources have been secured, and our expert knowledge of tooling and production processes significantly decreases risk of missing our schedule estimates. Our factory and production partners in Asia are proven reliable over decades, and the necessary sourcing relationships are robust and mature.
While multiple pre-production prototypes are being tested and evaluated, some changes can, and likely will be implemented prior to final production. The circuitry is solid and proven. The science is long proven, as are the underlying ideas. Some functionality, such as the look and feel of the controls, are likely to be refined prior to production. Some minor risk exists with respect to these changes, if, for example, a change doesn’t yield the expected benefit. We do not believe the risk of significant problems or delays delay will occur, but it’s impossible to be 100 percent certain. All delays of this nature will be fully disclosed to our backers in the unlikely event of a production delay.

Sometimes unanticipated importation issues can arise. These are risks we’ve been taking and learning from for a long time. Severe weather is extremely unlikely to impact delivery schedules. Only slightly more likely are risks at the Port of Entry. Last year a dock strike caused delays for many businesses, but those problems have abated. Customs delays are generally short, and again, we consider those potential delays in our schedule. Nevertheless, customs and dock delays aren’t completely under our control, so we can’t rule them out completely. We feel the risks are very slight, and we’re confident in our ability to anticipate them. Again, any delays will be accompanied by prompt notification of our backers.
We believe that our campaign and production and fulfillment schedules are conservative and realistic. We’re very excited about our amazing upcoming products and the opportunity to work with the Kickstarter community to bring Cortex to market.
