DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED QUALITY CONTROL SYSTEM FOR A MANUFACTURING ORGANIZATION (A CASE STUDY OF S.E.D.I). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
The purpose of the study is to computerize quality control system for manufacturing organization (A case study of S.E.D.I Enugu) and to develop a computer package whereby the techniques observed from the manual method can be improved on. It is known fact that the manual method of quality control system in production has been associated with lots in inaccuracy in quality control and this has lead to early break down of parts when in service. The software with developed will facilitate and enhanced the mode and methods of quality control in spare production of S.E.D.I Enugu.
A quality control system in production management is a qualitative technique with strong financial implication having direct relationships with production, marketing, purchasing and financial policies.
Also, it is a system used in the management of manufacturing held by any organization as it concern addition to, storage and removal from the trading organization with appropriate record keeping.
S.E.D.I. Ltd, Enugu as an assembly plant maintains a large amount of stick vehicle spare parts which are imported from any of her vendor, Viz:- MBAG-Mercedes – Benz AG Germany, MBBRAS-Mercedes- Benz Brazil or MBE-Mercedes-Benz Espana for the production line or sales to distributions or authorized agents/dealers.
These stocks are held for various reasons among which are:
(a) To ensure unit sufficient goods are available to meet anticipated demand.
(b) To provide a buffer between production processes. This is applicable to work in progress stocks effectively decouple operation.
(c) To meet possible shortages in the future.
All these spare part, which may similar menu by description, varies greatly among themselves depending on the type of model of vehicle using them. Thus, the management and operation of stores functions and the control of stock can only be performed in an efficient manner when there is an appropriate means of upturning and storing information and the facility of the analysis and use of this information.
In the light of the above S.E.D.I. Ltd Enugu maintains a visible records system return to as KARDEX, As a prerequisite in any quality control system ANAMCO Ltd maintains a peculiar but unique coding system such that all the numerous spare parts are each uniquely coded and identified for accurate and specific information on them.
