As the information system manager small manufacturing plant,

Customer Question

As the information system manager for a small manufacturing plant, you are responsible for all aspects of the use of information technology. A new inventory control system is being implemented to track the quantity and movement of all finished products stored in a local warehouse. Each time a forklift operator moves a case of product, they must first scan the UPC code on the case. The product information is captured, as well as the day, time, and forklift operator identification. These data are transmitted over a LAN to the inventory control computer, which then displays information about the case and where it should be placed in the warehouse.
The warehouse manager is excited about using case movement data to monitor worker productivity. He will be able to tell how many cases per shift each worker moves, and he plans to use these data to provide performance feedback that could result in pay increases or termination. He has asked you if there are any potential problems with using the data in this manner, and, if so, what should be done to avoid them? How would you respond?
