Recently, a plant operated by Better Power to produce solar panels has reported a 30% decrease of output, resulting in lower sales and backorders stretching up to two months. Upon investigation, supervisors at the plant have attributed lost productivity to:

• new machinery introduced to speed up production not being properly operated.
News of the decreased output has led to a drop in employee morale and concerns about job security.
