DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A BILL OF MATERIALS PROCESSING SYSTEM  (A CASE STUDY OF EMENITE NIG. LTD. EMENE, ENUGU) A

ABSTRACT

With the trend of technology growth in the world of today, virtually every facet of human work has been affected; even the remotest of it all, and the production circle cannot be left out.  This study was carried out to verify all the manual processes involved in bill-of-material processing system and to seek a way of automating the system for effective operations.

Since there is continuous moves towards technological advances that enhanced productivity of labour and free human beings of tasks done more economically by machines.  Computer and its applications have become indispensable and vital tools in economic, industrial and social development of the advanced countries of the world.  Nigeria as a developing country cannot afford to lag too far behind in this kind of revolution.  Therefore there is every need to know in every discipline the areas, which attracts computerization and why they need it.

In this project, the software engineering principles were applied in the analysis, coding and testing of the software developed for the Bill-of-material processing.  Serious attention was also give to the design of the user interface.

In the development of the software, visual basic programming language was used de to its support for all the features desired.  A brief user’s guide is also provided.  The end result is a software that is very effective and efficient in meeting it objectives and at the same time user friendly.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1            BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The use of traditional approach in problems solving has really left some loopholes in life and this has encourage the introduction of computers in various fields of work including production in terms of keeping of bill of materials in production and most recently reordering of sales.

The Bill-of-material processing system has been in existence in many organizations though in a traditional approach.  Introducing the computer system will greatly improve materials requirement planning in the following aspects.

(a)  Reliability

(b)  Validity

(c)   Accuracy

(d)  Appropriate storage of data

(e)   Timeliness

The above factors are due to the fact that the computer possesses some great features, and advantages over traditional approach.

 

1.2            STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS

No doubt that the use of traditional system has created a lot of problems in production of roofing sheets at EMENITE.  The quantity and amount of materials and sub-assembly needed to produce a product cannot be traceable because of glaring disadvantages stated below.

ØPoor information storage method: The use of office files and file cabinets is not a good form of information storage.

ØInsecurity of data because it is prone to vandalization and unauthroised accessibility

ØDuplication of data in various departments because of the nature of work needed

It takes a long time in accessing records in the manual system (filing system) due to the nature of the job.  It is not always good for materials to finish unnoticed, so the re-ordering of materials are not made as and when due.

The introduction of the computer system will help eliminate these problems to an extent.

 

1.3            PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

This project is generally towards eradication of all the deformities and curb hookups of the manual method of bill-of-materials processing, thus developing a new system to handle the jobs involved in the processing of Bill-of-material electronically.
