ABOUT THE PROJECT
Eco Clip was created to solve the problem what to do with all papers accidentally printed, or no longer needed. Eco Clip is a thing that helps to do one's part for the environment while binding draft and leftover papers into an attractive notebook.
To use it, one just has to collect the papers, stack them and fold them in half. Then they can be simply bound with Eco Clip just being slided between the pin and the clip.
Eco Clip can bind up to 15 A4 pages and designed to reduce waste of paper.
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The engineering, test and manufacturing processes are rigorous and focused on producing high quality, well tested products. As the authors move towards mass production molds, and testing of the Eco Clip final design, they may learn that additional revision is needed to meet high quality standards. This may delay the delivery schedule.
The remaining tasks may take longer than expected to complete.
The Eco Clip uses few different parts. Sometimes a part can become discontinued or be out of stock for a long time. This can impact delivery schedule.
