Hi Milan,
We're talking about a reasonably simple, plastic consumer product. (Some
models have electronics, but nothing earth-shattering.) Tests involve
dropping it from certain heights, examining its resistance to chemicals,
etc.

I created some test report templates for the engineers to use (in MSWord).
They are concerned that its better/more accurate for them to write (filling
out my template) than for them to explain the test to me and for me to meet
to write...

Thanks,
Deb K
