ABSTRACT

This research work was designed to examine at the impact of production planning and control in manufacturing company as a primary function of production management. Consequently, it integrates the planning and control activities with other managerial activities. The project views the production planning and control in the context of the business operation and consistently relates this function of management to relevant activities in production marketing and finance departments. It urges that in most business operations to day lack of planning in unit, section, department or organisation as a whole leads to over production or under production and some time complete failure of the business organisation especially in the production planning and control department. Planning in the organisation hierarchy, size and product. The project stresses the immense value attached to production planning and control as well as its application of systematic planning techniques, on the of overall production operations management.

CHAPTER ONE

 

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

1.0   INTRODUCTION

Production planning and control are term that though commonly used have witness a lot of changes both in meaning and scope in the past few years.  For example based on the extended view of production to include the provision of all sort of service production both as a discipline of study and as a profession can now be practiced in all king of organization.

 

As in other fields of management planning and control from the primary function of production management.  It is for this reason that the research has decided to take a critical look at production planning and control as practiced in beverage industrial sector of the Nigeria economy.

 

This is informed by the variety of major product and beverage produced in the industry as exemplified by the Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) Kaduna.  Production can be regarded as the centre focus of any manufacturing concern.  It is the stage where the real action takes place that is the transformation of raw materials (inputs) into finished products (outputs).  The planning and control operations are necessary because in every manufacturing unit there are people, machine and material.  There is the need to plan all expensive resources required for production in order to make effective use of them and maximize profit making for the organizations

 

Modern production is complex hence both technologically related operation and administrative activities must therefore be planned carefully to make account of all the possible restriction constraints and advantages.  In planning to meet orders at less cost is the objects of production planning.

 

Production planning involves not only types of operation to be used but the order of these operation as well as a time of duration the operation should take and how the plan should be laid out.

 

This maiden chapter consider the background setting of the study.  It defines the problem and objectives of the study.  The hypothesis are formulated and the scope and limitation of the study defined.  The chapter end with the significance of the study stated and key term defined.
