I have programmed machines for aerospace, automotive, pharma and other branches...
In almost every project I worked, there was a "downgrade" request at some point in the project, when they realize that the required specifications are not realistic and an obstacle for the serie production. Many of them I had no seconds thoughts about it and did the changes, but I had to face some situations where I denied / rejected to do some modifications. One thing is "quality" of the product, another is security.

I even had a customer low-manager that wanted some changes without a written change request. When I blocked and told "no way" he started threatening me to include me in a black list. I told him to go and Elephant | [mastadon] himself, closed my laptop, put everything back in my bag and left the factory.

I was called before reaching the car to please come back and finish the project.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
