As we know, conflicts will most likely arise in this project, not only with the product itself, but the group. We will not always be able to meet as scheduling may be hard, and personal time is valuable. The product itself may pose more challenges than we plan it to when undertaking the dissection and reassembly. Regardless of the type of possible problem, we will solve them in an orderly, organized manner in which we will consult each other, discuss possible views/solutions, and come to a group decision in order to produce a solution that benefits the group most.
