I review scenarios where our truck may have not behaved as our software engineers intended it to. After a test, we'll develop an event ticket where I'm able to analyze the situation that the truck was in and investigate why it behaved the way that it did. Then I channel that feedback back to the software engineers so that they can take corrective action.
