1.1 Introduction

Planning and forecasting are all elements of efficient.

The industrial and overall development of any nation in one way or the other is based on the efficiency in the production sector of the nations economy this efficiency can only be achieved through the adequate and proper utilization of all the factors of production in conjunction with designing a good production system.
In analyzing production system the following decision are involved

Decision about the quality of production facilities required and their respective location’s need to be made; there are also decisions about the required level of performance and the more decision have to be made on the desired method of production and the management procedure that is to be introduces.

When all the above have been adequately taken care of the task of operating the production system is then considered in tackling this problem the management will have to formulate the production scheduling and control quality control and inventory management. To undertake these operations efficiently they will need to be properly defined in their design as in their relationship to the production system other wise management will run into a brick wall it is only when all facts of the production system are sequentially organized that the system can be efficiently operated

1.2 Historical Background

This Limca Bottlers Plc was incorporated in Nigeria in 1985- it is owned by an incline national at inception they opened a plant at Warri which is still being regarded as their head quarters.

The Okigwu plant of Limca bottlers was commissioned in May 15th 1973. at the Okigwu plant they produce a range of three brands of soft drinks namely: Limca Gold spot and Pearle soda their production machines which includes the horst corller Hansa serving increasing and justice citer where all imported from harmony. The plant is located along the Enugu to Okigwe express road

1.3 Statements of Problem

The Nigeria nation is so complex and diversified that the we can not afford a poor production system design the attendant problems of a poor production system design are numerous some of these are that it results to inefficiency in production which in turn leads to scarcity of goods and service which is a fall-out of constant break down in machines wastages in time and material delay in supplies and orders when it is obvious all these are available coupled with very inferior method of production.

Poor organization may sometimes lead to a situation where the work standard in one sector being higher than in another sector with in the same production system leading to the production of substandard goods and service which may not meet market standard. These are the problems that the researcher seeks to proffer situation to

1.4 Significance of Study

Production efficiency is best improved by finding the best possible production system design efficiency in production is of utmost importance to a developing nation like Nigeria

It is obviously true that in any field of human endeaviour improvement are achieves by learning what people do how they do them with what efforts (positive and negative) and possible need for adjustment. Therefore the analysis of production system design and management in the soft drink industry is no exception the finding of this study shall be an indispensable impute for successful administration in our country like Nigeria it will improved an efficient production system design which will lead to provision of quality goods and service and also create more employment opportunities for the nation.

1.5 Objective of Study

In carrying but the study the following objectives are held on view

  1. To examine and analyze the probable relationship between production system design and production efficiency
  2. Defining effective management procedure for operating efficient product system
  3. To identity most of the possible solution to problem of production system design
  4. To find out best out of various operation in the design a product system will have to achieve efficiency in production

1.6 Research Question

In the course of this study the researcher intends to provide the answers to these questions

  1. Does the effective management producers guarantee operation of efficient production system
  2. What are the relationship that exist between production system design and production efficiency
  3. Does production system design lead to provision quality goods and service and create employment opportunities
  4. What are the problems in production system design and production efficiency?

1.7 Scope

This study covers five soft drink plant spread over four states Imo Abia Enugu and Anambra they are 7 up bottling company Aba Nigeria bottling company Enugu and Onistsh Limca bottling company Onitsha and Limca bottling company at Okigwu was taken as the case study. All the various economic factors were taken into consideration carrying out the study.

The existing government legislation in these areas were looked into sight was not lost of the present economic depression and its effect on the company’s sales revenue and growth. the study will be limited to the present capacity and production lines as efforts will not be directed into areas of strategies for company’s growth and or introduction of new products

1.8 Limitations

The seemingly narrow scope of the study was as a result of constraints occasioned by inadequate time. The study involved a lot of oral interviews with personal and physical observation of operation but it will be impossible to ration enough time to all these activities and have enough left for other academic works

Another constraining factors is finance the times are hard economically and the transport fares from base to location of study are so high that their provision is nearly impossible

There is also the problem constant changes in the economy which makes. It imperative that regular visits be made to study location to up data

Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Conclusion

A system is a collection of elements or components that are related and interacting with each other to perform a number of general and special functions. Therefore, the production and operating system is a set of linked units, and when combined together, the system will achieve the set goal. For example, the Limca production and operating system, Okigwe, is made up of physical and human components. Cars, materials, men, and many related entities create goods and services when they are combined. In the production and operating system, there is a series of interactive units or subsystems, each of which contributes to the efficiency of the production system as a unit, if not, the main purpose of the production and operation management will not be achieved. The main features are like that either related activities include planning and production control, inventory control and quality control. The main input sources, namely men, materials and machines, will be combined to ensure effective results in production planning and control subsystem, warehouse control subsystem as well as quality control subsystem. From the point of view of the production and operations management function, from the systems point of view, managers in each division specifically consider their roles and responsibilities as important and important in achieving the goals. basic objectives of operation management and production. A typical production system describes the process by which different input sources become ready-made products and services. This changing process is the most important stage in the manufacturing process because most of the company’s assets are spent.

5.2 Recommendation

Designing and management of product is very important to manufacturers because it gives them a competitive advantage in the industry. The challenge for the manufacturer is to offer design ideas that support their skills and evaluate their performance in terms of design skills and validate in accordance with the importance of feedback. Specifically, one of the main reasons for designing or producing a service to ensure the basic needs of the customer, therefore, the manufacturer and the manager should consider the legal and environmental issues involved in the development of new products / services. Again, design considerations should be taken into account when hosting the organization and other factors that influence performance such as economic dynamics, technological change, quantity change and competitive market.
