Sample Answer 2 For The Most Difficult Project

The most demanding project I ever worked on(mention the challenge here) was during my Apprenticeship when I was working in our tooling d/ment, helping to design tools to build a tractor engine  .

I was assigned  the role of  developing a technical manual for the engine’s’ stand, the stand was so large  and we i realized that at some point we have to ship the whole engine  in 2 pieces and then bring the parts together again at the other end!

So i had to  closely  work with the tooling supplier currently based in SA, i had to cope with the long  distance and with the language barrier too.

It was very challenging and getting the information in the correct form to the customer was  really tough and it sometimes took longer to do so.
