CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Production is one of the most important function of management in every organization. The essence of production is to prepare  or forecast into the future in terms of production in an organization. As such Baryoko (2002) opined that production planning is mainly concerned with the directing and controlling of production process of an organization in order foster optimum utilization of human and material resources  use in production, which brings about increase productivity and consequently profit maximization.

 

Similarly Nwachukwu (2007) opined that production planning involves the establishment of the overall strategy and process design required for the realization of effective production in an organization.

 

As such, production planning’s particularly very important in a developing country where resources are relatively scarce. In Nigeria, where many of the manufacturing firms are inexperienced interms of technical know-how, production planning become very imperative in other to avoid waste of resources. This is so because production planning is a blue print for action. As such all manufacturing organization who are into production need to plan their production in order to gain an optimum utilization of their plant and raw materials use in production.

 

However, Ayo (2006) opined that failure to engage in production planning give rise to inefficiency and lack of direction. It make the organizations to constantly put off fire instead of preventing its occurrence. This implies that production planning entails the identification of what at business plans to do in terms of growth, development and survival or continuous existence. But inspite of this, over 48.6% of Nigeria indigenous organizations do not undertake a formal plan and do not have production budgets.

 

It is against this background that the researcher deemed it very imperative to investigate the subject matter of this research. The impact of production planning on productivity in seven-up bottling company Kaduna.

 

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Production planning as earlier indicated is a very crucial aspect of any management process. Hence, efficient production planning becomes very imperative for the sustainability of an effective production system that would be cost effective and profitable.

 

But inspite of the importance of production planning and its positive impact on productivity, it is observed by Ayo (2006) that about 48.6% of Nigerian indigenous organizations do not undertake a formal plan and do not have production budgets. As such doubt is expressed about production planning in most organization in Nigeria. Hence the need to investigate the impact of production planning on the productivity of seven-up bottling company Kaduna become very imperatives and the subject matter becomes an empirical problem worthy of investigation.

Small and medium enterprise may also find the findings of this study really significant as they utilize the finding  as a guideline in formulating their production planning.

 

The study will also contribute to knowledge by being a good reference material to students, scholars, resources and individuals who may wish to undertake similar research. This research can be used as a spring board to undertake their own work.

 

1.5    RESEARCH QUESTIONS

i.      What are the production planed activities in seven-up    bottling  company kaduna

ii.      What is the effect of production system in the manufacturing of seven up products?

        iii.     What is the meaning of production planning

iv.     Is Production planning relevant to productivity.

 

1.6    SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The study covers the effect of production planning in seven-up bottling company Kaduna plant a

 

1.7    LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

Every research activity has its constraints this particular one is however not an exception, certain factors limit the process of writing this research work, which include:
