In planning for a GPS solution, there are plenty of opportunities to poorly execute
implementation, effectively leading to less than desirable results. Implementations that
go awry do so for several reasons. The expectation that installing GPS will solve many
issues without knowing how it will solve them is a misconception. If GPS is not
integrated with any automation system, the information it generates will quickly become
overwhelming. In a short time span operators will experience such a flood of information
that they may end up not paying attention to all of it. Failing to capture the value of the
information creates a situation where all the costs to install and activate will not be
recovered in the timeframe that was expected.
