- Printing hard copy orders for employees, with no details on how to complete the order.
- The need for managers to distribute orders on an ongoing basis, at their discretion.
- Lack of immediate feedback to employees on whether they completed the order well.
- A problem with aggregate data analysis for the entire company, due to the lack of transparency in the system and the difficulty of accessing individual information.
