Foster Technologies Inc. is a wholly owned research and development subsidiary of LB Foster that focuses on wheel counter research and development for traffic control and the railway industry. The failed test of the railway wheel counting prototype was jeopardizing the company's promised delivery of the devices to a customer by the end of the month. With the company's and the vice-president of operations reputations at stake, he must decide what the next move is: Can his team resolve the problems with the prototype? Should he ask to have the chief design engineer removed or should he resign?
