CHAPTER ONE

  1. INTRODUCTION

Ever since the industrial revolution a couple of years ago which encouraged us from an economy based in agriculture into on based on manufacturing, our standard of living depended on the efficient production of goods and services, without production we would still be a poor and backward nation instead of being what we re. we have been overtaken by some many countries in recent years and one of the main reason for this is that our production of goods and services has not been efficient as in those countries. Am obvious example is Japan which may have viable mineral resources compared to our own nation that has a lot of them. Japan his risen through the years due to their efforts in technology. The country has advanced in technology up to the extent of overtaking us in terms of wealth without viable mineral resources.

 

In almost every country, people want a high and risen standard of living and this could only be achieved by more effective production of goods and services. Every industry, whether manufacturing are services, need to be run efficiently and competently both in its technological advancement and its organization. In short, it most produce the goods. Production is basically about the creation of goods and services. It cal also include the modification and assembly of existing goods such as turning copper wire into electric motor and the repair and servicing of broken goods. Whatever from production may take it must be carefully planned and controlled. The control of production itself must be carefully planned and implemented indeed the most beautiful production plan cannot be very effective it if ir not guaranteed.

 

In this study therefore  intend to critically examine the concept of production using PAN as a case study.

 

  1. PURPOSE OF STUDY

As at the end of 1986, total assets of the company stood over one billion (1,000,000,000). PAN was established with a primary objective of assembling and manufacturing Peugeot brands of vehicles the industry is expected to serve as concrete “justification for Nigeria’s Steel Industry” and a catalyst for spring up of other forward and backward integrated industries.

  1. RESEARCH QUESTIONS
  1. How adequate is the practice of production control in respect to selecting and loading in PAN?
  2. How effective are the practice of control system in PAN?

 

  1. SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The task of achieving the objective of this study has not been a problem free. A number of problems have been encountered that tend to limit the success of the work. For instance there was the usual problem of reluctance of respondents to provide the needed information. Transportation to the company posed a lot of problems considering the location of the factory, which is at the outskirt of the town.

Time constraint due to the nature of the course an the tedious task of having to combine the rigorous activities of the course and the research work coupled with one’s vocation makes the research highly time and energy demanding. Financial problem were also not ruled our as a regards to the cost of material needed and information for the research and the compilation of the report. With reference to PAN. This means that particular attention will be given to the company, precisely I shall closely study the operation of the control division with the view of determining the production control systems being applied and identifying the problem encountered.

To put the subject of discussion into proper context and to enhance greater understanding attempts are being made to review the existing literature on the subject.
