This project is written to help Nigeria Bottling Companies especially Nigeria
Breweries 9th mile Plc Enugu in
the areas they encounter problems in distribution and the solution given to
tackle those problem.
The research was carried out of many difficulties such as time factors, money
and inability to get much information that could have been of help. But still
with all those the researcher came up with something readable and valuable to
anybody that goes through it.

Problem / limitation of the study
Distribution is a system through which goods produced are transferred from the
production area to the final consumer through different channels. It ensures
that people will be able to obtain production when and where needed. It
involves the actual movement of product as well as their ownership. To the
ultimate consumers processing of any Nigerian company especially N.B.L 9th mile Enugu to be computerized to
help save difficulties encountered during the distribution of the final
In Nigerian Breweries PLC 9th mile
Enugu, where drinks like Star Lager Beer, Guilder the Ultimate, Legend Stout
Beer, Guinness Stout and Guinness Malt, Amstel Malt are produced, distribution
is done manually. So the aim of this project is to computerized the
distribution processing and monitor the company goods.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Distribution as often said is a
system by which products are transferred from the production area to the final
consumer through different channels like wholesalers, retailers etc.
distribution started when the idea of producing goods came up. If goods are
produced without being sold, it becomes a waste of time, money and resources.
Distribution takes different forms. There are goods produced that need to be distributed
directly to the final consumer and there are some that will undergo certain
processes. E.g. the distribution channels before it gets to the final consumer.
There are some companies e.g.
Nigeria Breweries 9th mile which
are situated or sited at the urban area. Goods produced here cannot reach those
that need them in the rural area and other urban area where the goods are not
produced. This is the reason why distribution is necessary and through the help
of distribution channels these products get to those that need them.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
This has to do with the title
of the project, which is the design, and implementation of a computerized
product in distribution monitoring system in Nigeria Breweries PLC 9th mile.
Due to the setback experienced
in the distribution of drinks in Nigeria Breweries PLC using manual method, the
company finds it difficult and useful to spread or disseminate information on
distribution. The problem caused by the use of manual method can only be solved
by computerizing the distribution processing.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The main purposes of this project are
computerize the distribution product in monitoring system in Nigerian Breweries
PLC 9th mile.
devise the effective efficient cost effective means of using automated or
computerized method to disseminate or spread information
ensure adequate circulation of finished product.
facilitate the services of the company to its customer.
increase turn over.
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The beneficiaries of this study are.
Computerization of the
distribution processing will help the manufacturer know the brand that has the
highest demand and produced it more.
There will be no market if the
wholesalers carry goods, which the customers will reject. They know the taste
of their customers and types of goods they like most. These are the one they
will demand or request.
The retailers sell direct to
customers. They know that their customers like and dislike so this study help
know the actual products they prefer.
Computerization of distribution
processing will help the customers to always get their taste because the
suppliers will now know the actual products they like most and supply it to
1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
Different Nigeria Bottling
companies have different ways of distributing their product. Our concern is the
distribution monitoring system of Nigeria Breweries Ama 9th mile
PLC. Distribution here takes three forms.
In depot delivery the drinks
are being transferred from the production area to the depots in different
places. People, institution, hotels, some establishments, go to these depots
to buy. Self-collection is a process by which the customers themselves go
to the production area to buy. Direct delivery needs salesman who will
come to the production area, collect the products, sell them and bring back the
money to the company.
