This project will be centered on the production control system. This production control system being operated manually and due to the numerous problem encountered and over payment. A design was taken to computerized in order to check this problem the problem were identified after series of interviews and examination of document after which analysis will be made and a computerized procedure recommended. This project will also suggest how to successfully implement the computerized procedure and to overcome the obstacle that would hinder the successful implementation of the system. The new system was developed using visual basic 6.0 and access database. This language was chosen because of its easy syntax and features for developing windows based applications.
PRODUCTION CONTROL SYSTEM
In his definition K.O. Hockyer, defined production in 1990 as an act of putting together human being, materials, plant and money in order to provide goods and services. The success of production comes about as a result of effective planning execution and control of activities within the frame work of the cooperate objective within the frame work of the cooperative objective.
This a place where people are employed for the purpose of making, uttering, repairing and or lamenting, finishing clearing, washing, breaking and adopting for sale of any articles.
The factory is regarded as a continued self sufficient body and it depend upon integration only when other parts of the organization change. Although this view is fact changing, the dangers f these visions are great, for example government registration may face a marketing change which requires a design modification in turn, can alter processes in such a way that operations may be displayed with consequent redundancy and retaining problems.
This problem would have seen and their effect integrated to look, outside the four walls of their machine production unit. Similarly a board decision to change from a selling policy where orders are accepted to marketing policy. Where orders are sought will inevitably demand major changes. In the white system of factory management. Again, this can be foreseen it the factory managers look in wards and out wards.
Furthermore, the factory itself provides the environment for it own constituent department and again the interaction of parts within themselves and with host environment. The interdependency between the two products important consequences.
a) Changes within the firm affect the environment to survive therefore, organizations must be prepared to respond to change and managers must not think as if any decision to affect a change is only internal
b) Change in the environment, which imposes change in the organization.
Today one of the most potentially powerful change agents is the computer, which can permit the consideration problems that are more complex than any which can be death with. For decision of the managers to be right, the information normally must be timely accurate etc good information therefore help to reduce uncertainly. A system that generates good information normally is seen, addressed or sensed as a group of components that interact to achieve a purpose such as the production of goods.
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Seven up bottle company development in Nigeria is one of the largest independent manufacturer and distribution of the well-known and widely consumed brands of soft drinks in Nigeria. Their brand are pepsi, 7up, Miranda teen and mountain dew, which we produce and market will dur present 9 manufacturing plants. The also market over 200 distribution centers that we also call depots spread over the nooks and crane of Nigeria. Our workforce is currently the in the neigbourhood of 35 employees. The cost associated with a unit of sale increased in Q2 2009 over the corresponding period in Q2 2008. This is reflected in the PB1 margain which decreased to 5. 62% in Q2 2009 6.44% as at Q2 2008, and down from 6.38% as at the end of the financial year in March, 2009. This shows that the company’s total cost as a percentage of to stands at 94.38% up marginally from 93.36% recorded in the corresponding period of 2003. PAT margin currently stands at 4 78%, down from 5.26% in the corresponding period of 2008, but from 4.78%, down 5.26% in the corresponding that the percentage of 90, PBT and PAT in the Q2 2009 result to the fully year audited TO, PBY and PAT for the period ended March to the 2009 show that it performs better both in log line and botton line in HYI. This can be attributed to the Christian and New Year sales and other ceremonies usually associated with year end.
To provide a system that will reduce the over head in maintaining independent date fills with its associated redundancy and integrity problems.
1.3 SCOPE OF STUDY
The system is a tool for controlling production function that go on daily in the 7up Company. For this reason aspects of production control such as scheduling and manufacturing authorization is not covered, including some aspect of dispatch processes. This system handle the material (stock) control but does not go into the purchasing and costing. It provides the necessary report that help in determine when to make purchase it generate the bills of various models or vehicles produced in seven up.
It monitors and control the activity of various parties to provide timely information that bears on meeting schedule.
