Obstacles at the production plant

Beston  took over the Shepparton site in 20[], and produces [].  Prior to purchase, the site had been following a traditional paper-based management system for many years. During this time, the business had begun to expand, but storing and finding information became increasingly difficult and both management and staff were unable to track production and manufacturing processes.  Further, this paper-based system was not tied into corporate reporting systems and a significant amount of time was spent each month to ensure information could be provided to corporate finance and management.  The paper-based system also meant that it was difficult to make operational improvements.

All these issues meant the plant was not performing as expected with management only able to hypothesise the reasons for poor performance (eg inefficient procurement, high waste of raw material, inaccurate numbers and inventory mismatches).
