Over the years, industries have been set up and the process .is still on, both large and small scale. As a result of this some areas have recorded tremendous growth and development than others. Indeed human knowledge has brought variance in the nature of growth and development on earth. However increase in population has raised demand and rate of consumption which gave way to industrial revolution in Europe in the 18th century.
In this industrial revolution, Nigeria is not left out in the quest for economic growth and development. The development eventually spread fast into other parts of the world and industrial expansion began to grow and gain ground fast from city to even rural areas. One of the most important industrial developments is the increase production of hydroelectric power which has necessitated the growth and development of both large and small scale entrepreneurship in some countries. In this respect, Africa in general and indeed Nigeria in particular was not left out in spite of British indirect rule policy.
In the past most manufacturing industries have closed down and no longer exist because of poor management, while others have been privatize. A typical example of such industry is the Delta Steel Company (DSC) at Aladja that has been privatizing to foreign investors due to lack of fund and proper management.
This research work is going to state some of the management problems of manufacturing industries, and also provide solution to these problems.
