Hi Troy,

It sounds like, from what Rene has said, it already is out of control.
Anything that makes it very difficult and/or expensive for a tester to
complete a testing run needs to be fixed rather urgently. I hope you
realize that, and I think you probably do, but from your posting it
wasn't clear.
