Technical feasibility


SECTION I: Testing



Has the R & D result been tested?






The following question is replied according to the reply in question 1


If yes



In what mode has the result been tested?

•             Prototype

•             Pilot Application

•             Alpha/BETA testing


The system can be considered as tested at a level comparable with the beta. In fact, the complete functionality has been developed and the software is currently in use in the institution.

A couple of function are still under development and some bug fixing activities are in progress.



1b. Please describe and discuss the testing results
The software has been positively tested using clients on desktop PCs. Currently the software is used by real users monitoring the Clinical Trials conducted at CRO Aviano.


If no:



Describe what type of testing does the R&D result need?




1d. What is the time needed for testing?
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?



SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development



To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
The team has resources to manage the residual development that may be necessary.




What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
Some technical issues to be taken into account are related to the deployment strategy and to the business model to be implemented. The most likely approach to be followed is based on a “service” model in which the users freely downloads the client tool and uses an external server (e.g. cloud). The user shall be charged with an annual fee.

The architecture of the product is suitable to this model.





What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
To allow the deployment to other institutions, the team should include some technical and sales support resources.



Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
The technical development is currently at an advanced stage. Some validation activities are still needed and minor modification may be necessary to finalize the deployment.


SECTION 3: Deployment


Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials



  • technologies, tools, machineries
Software, data networks, PCs, servers.




  • Staff effort
After the deployment, a part-time technical/sales support resource need to be applied.







SECTION 4: Overall Assessment



What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
The remaining activities are not critical: the level of confidence about feasibility is considered good.
