Warehouse Mismanagement: 

Material Mismanagement in the warehouse mainly consists of cost control, accuracy, efficiency, security in the process is complex causing various problems across the industries. Balancing the tradeoffs due to resource limitations. In a warehouse, a single serial ticket is passed through multiple hands and can be misplaced or torn or something. Fluctuations in demand cause a serious issue faced due to increased inventory levels. Mainly using the excel or entering the data manually many times leads to error. 

Site Mismanagement: 

It is the most critical to handle the onsite availability so that the materials can be listed to the site inventories within a short period of time. It’s difficult to know the multiple warehouse status capabilities. Forecast availability for future needs and notifying it to a suitable warehouse. A major problem for the onsite management is still the usage of all papers and receipts for the delivery/dispatch process which can lead to the loss of the receipt or error in signing the bill affecting the accuracy and timing.

The requirements of the vendors are also not very clear which also causes material mismanagement. It also happens that obtaining goods and services at a low price and ensuring the delivery at the time. Receiving the purchasing requisition, receiving and accepting the goods and following the delivery date is all very complex and can be easily missed can be misplaced if any serial number is misplaced or lost.
