You have the responsibility of constructing a vehicle according to the instructions given by the Designers. Your task is scheduled to begin no later than 45 minutes from the start of the project. The Designers may call you in to give instructions at any time HOWEVER you must not communicate with them unless they approach you first. If you are not summoned you must report anyway at the precise end of this
After the 45 minutes has elapsed you will be allowed only one further period of consultation lasting up to 5 continuous minutes with the designers. You, the Engineers, can request this one consultation at any time during phase two, but it must be an unbroken period and may not exceed 5 minutes.
You are to finish the construction within 30
While you are waiting for a call from the Designers, it is suggested that you discuss and make notes on the following questions:
What feelings and concerns are you experiencing whilst you wait for the instructions for the task?
How can you best organize yourselves as a team?
Your notes recorded on the above questions will be helpful during phase five.
