Often, organizations count multiple redundant and unnecessary tasks that are executed on a day to day basis. This leads to duplication of human effort and wasting precious time. Moreover, organizations may have multiple and intricate processes, and to document the data for each process can be a cumbersome task and difficult to manage. Also, various formats and information sources hinder the supervisors to interpret data, and subsequently plan accordingly.
The integrity of the data is compromised due to paper-based quality checks. Product recalls are a direct consequence of poor data management practices.
The 3 main problems faced in data management are:
- Usually, data from the paperwork is manually fed into Excel sheets in order to run reports, which is likely to lead to errors.
- Difficulties in finding the right information and papers during quality audits can lead to complications.
- Difficulties in generating reports frequently, which can subsequently lead to complications in tracking data and managing delivery.
