This research work, accessing the impact of
production planning and control on productivity in the manufacturing industry.
This study is focused on Nigeria Bottling Company (Coca-Cola), Kaduna. The
study covers five chapters, Chapter one introduces the subject matter and
spells out the significance of the study. Chapter two make criteria review of
the current literature on the subject matter. The third chapter presents the
methods of data collections, chapter four shows the presentations and the
analysis of the data collected from the respondents. The fifth chapter shows
the summary, recommendation and conclusion. The population for this study
covers three hundred staff of Cocacola, the researcher randomly selects thirty
staff as his sample size. The hypothesis formulated of his study includes: H0:
Effective production planning and control do not enhance organizational
productivity. H1: Effective production planning and control enhance
organizational productivity. Data collected were presented and analyzed in a
tabular form using percentage. It was further tested with the use of chi-square
and hypothesis was confirmed.

OF THE STUDY
Planning and control are terms that though commonly used have witness a lot of
changes both in meaning and scope in the past four years, for example, based on
the extended view of production to include the tradition of all of production
services both as discipline of study and as a profession can now be practiced
in all kind of organization. As in other field of management, planning and
control forms the primary function of the production management. It is for this
reason that this 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 produce
in industry as exemplified by Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) Kaduna.
(2002) defined production as the process by which goods and services are
created. Production cab be regarded as the central focus of any manufacturing
concern. It is that stage where the real action takes place i.e. the
transformation of raw materials (input) into finished products (output). The
planning and control operation are necessary because in every manufacturing
unit there are people, machine and materials. 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 organization.
production is complex hence both technologically related operation and
administrative activities must therefore be planned carefully to make account
of all the possible restructure, constraints and advantages. In planning to
meet order at less cost in the object of production planning.
to Mayer (2002), there is a logic behind the operation of the production
process, it sterns from the types of technology as well as in type of
production in the particular manufacturing process.
(2002) defined production as a managerial function that tends to design, plan
what to produce, when to produce, where to produce and for whom to produce, the
quantity, the quality to produce and for whom to produce. These function
attempts to define the key decision model involved in production i.e. the long
term and the short term planning and as well as identify the procedure and
their control in a cost effective way.
(2002) defined it as the activity of transforming raw material or component
into finished product” whatever the definition it is clear that production
essentially entails the production of goods and services.
planning involve not only the types of operation to the used but the order of
these operations as well as a time or duration the operation should take how
the plan should be laid out.
OF THE PROBLEM
organization production certainties are slow and time given to complete a given
task always exceeds the expected given time. This study intends to investigate
and know the reasons behind productivity among the employees.
also a times, the use of quantitative techniques in assigning jobs in an
organization, it is properly maintained, they get short of material due to lack
of good control of stock. The scope and concept of production management is not
fully known in some managers. The problem of production planning and control
will be discussed in this work and solution.
the study intends to know the problems associated with activities of planning
in relation to Cocacola Production and Solution suggested.
OF THE STUDY
following are the objectives of this study:
To assess the impact of production
planning and control on manufacturing industry.
To determine how effective planning
and control enhance organizational productivity.
To identify the strategy for
enhancing the organizational productivity.
To assess adequacy in controlling
