Another essential thing to do is to talk with the project supervisor to discuss the expectations of the project report, whether or not to include results from previous projects, points of interest and concerns, how long the story should be and the particular format acceptable. Having done all this, one can then move on to the next stage, the Formatting, and Writing of the report stage.

The challenges might include insufficient resources, miscommunication among the project team, mechanical or technical failure of machines and equipment, or any other delays.
