ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTION SYSTEM DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT IN THE SOFT DRINK INDUSTRY
The utmost aim of this study is to clearly define the factors necessary for the design of an efficient production system with a medium scale industry as the case study. It is also hoped that in the course of the study definition will be given to the design of a production system as it is manifested practically in commerce and industry
Taking Limca bottling company Okeigwe as the case study it is aimed to find out if overall performance of production of the company is a direct consequence of the nature of system and the criteria for the selection of the system design and management
In carrying out this research obvious efforts were direct towards the following
1. Defining effective management procedures for operating efficient production system.
2. To find how an efficient production system can leas to the provision of abundant goods and service and create employment opportunities.
Due to the nature of the study only those on the management level of the study, only those on analysis of data obtained and findings the researcher was able to conclude that:
1. Effective management procedure will guarantee the operation of efficient production system
2. There exist a relationship between production
3. Efficient production system design can lead to provision of quality goods and service and also create employment opportunities
In concluding the work the researcher made the following recommendations:
i. The company should hold firm to active strategy in production
ii. Work study should be carried by the company
iii. The company has to source raw material locally
iv. They have to reduce their level of inventories
v. Try to expand the existing market of their products
It is the opinion of the researcher that if the above recommendation are looked into the company stands to gain more.

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
