The project is to evaluate a number of completed subprojects within ePilot119 and demonstrate the possibilities, difficulties and uncertainties to provide an approximate estimate of the cost-benefit effect. Assessments should be made of the commercial potential of ePilot. If possible, make an overall assessment of the profitability of the project evaluated in the categories: very profitable, likely profitable, uncertain and unprofitable.
The project helps to describe the possible benefit of society and business. The question is ultimately whether ePiot119 sub-projects have generated benefit that justifies the cost of the projects.
That in actual operation test research and development results requires careful planning and starting common vision among stakeholders. Here evaluated three sub-projects shows that it expected at the start of the sub- projects is met when the sub-projects completed. The basis for the successful outcome is that there has been an understanding of each other's roles, that problems may arise and to jointly tried to solve the problem characters. The interviews and the review of final reports as highlighted through the collaboration towards common goals that the biggest success factor. Attitude and behavior was thus important elements in the implementation. Assessment of the benefits and impacts in qualitative terms could be done by the sub-project specifications, project reports and interviews. In order to evaluate the commercial potential of quantitative economic terms and make a profitability assessment was carried out a simple email survey.
