This study is based on the computerization of a quality assurance
monitoring system of a manufacturing industry. It entails sourcing from all
parts of the company on how they operate especially in the quality assurance
This project is narrowed to the expected module. It is not
the intention here to treat each module separately, hence the entire project is
menu driven to cover some of the facilities present.
Finally, at the end of this work, we would have been able to get a
computer-based system that assures quality of a product(s) of a manufacturing

1.1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON ANAMMCO
The Anambra Motor Manufacturing
Company (ANAMMCO) is a joint venture between the federal government of Nigeria
and Daimler Benz AG/ Mercedes Ag of Germany.
Mercedes Benz (MB) Anammco
Limited was incorporated on 17th January
1977, and the new plant was commissioned on July 8th,
1980 by the First executive president of Nigeria, Alhaji Sheu
Shagari. It started official production in 1981, and has to date
made an enviable mark on the nation’s industrial growth, adding over 20,000
vehicles to the nations transport sector, backed up effectively with a network
of over 36 after-sales service points and spare parts supply depots.
commercial vehicles and leads in the production of both private and commercial
vehicles in Nigeria. This plant which occupies a sprawling 300,000
square meters site at Emene, near Enugu is virtually a shining example of a
profitable and viable economic and technological co-operation between the
government and people of Nigeria and Germany.
The multi-million-naira plant
was initially planned to produce trucks for the Nigerian market.
But today, the plant has diversified its production range to include the full
range of commercial and private vehicles for the rapid industrialization of the
country. It not only produces trucks as originally planned but has gone a
step further in fabrication, manufacturing, and production of buses and other
utility vehicles. Part of its product range today include; MB 0131, L 608
D, MB 1520, MB 230, MB 500 SEL, MB 1414, MB 911, MB 809, fire fighting
vehicles, ambulances, mobile clinic collector and other various specialized
types of vehicles. The company has expanded its bus programme to start
producing a new intercity bus (MB 1635). It should also be noted that the
MB-ANAMMCO has achieved over 657 local consent in some of these vehicles,
especially in buses.
As a formidable representative
of MB-A in Nigeria, MB-ANAMMCO brings mecedes-benz technology and know-how to
Nigerians while at the same time create over 800 employment opportunity for
Nigerians. Indeed, the establishment of MB-ANNAMMCO marked the
realization of a great dream of developing the country technologically and
MB-ANNAMMCO has actively
participated in the federal government assisted mass transit programme.
It has supplied over 800 units of different bus models to the federal urban
mass transit agency and state and local government mass transit
programme. These buses are still strong and very capable as they are
supported by the unbeatable after sale s services of the company and their
renowned distributors and dealers. Only recently, the company was invited
to produce 700 additional mass transit vehicles for the country to oushion the
effect of the increase in the price of petroleum products.
facilities/opportunities centre were commissioned in April 26, 1982, sales,
services and spare parts training for their staff and staff of their
distributors, dealers and fliet owners.
MB-ANNAMMCO continues to live
up to its social responsibilities in all ramifications. It takes care of
its 800 employees by offering them medical services, recreational facilities,
etc. In addition, it occasionally donates to charity organisations and
identifies with the government in its socio-cultural endeavours and community
JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROJECT
Computerization or computer-based in this concept means the
introduction of the computer to the different aspects and levels of the
company. Rather than looking forward to handling information from,
messenger – supervisor – maintenance- engineer- manager- expatiate manager
–General manager – Board of Directors, this approach is necessary because
computer is nearest to information systems. Not only that, it yields
better results because a better information system normally improves
So system must change.
The purpose of this new trend is to outline orderly methods of design and
effect the changes which is systematic in changing system. The system of
modifying and reviewing them is called the system development cycle.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The project accept different sources of spare parts, different
models of vehicle and keeps track of them in files and can act any given time
when needed by anybody generate the organisations report.
SCOPE OF STUDY
The scope of this study is mainly for the Anambra Motor
Manufacturing Company (ANAMMCO) Nig. Ltd, Emene, Enugu state.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aims and objectives of this work is that when the system
becomes operational, it will,
Permit on-line-time data storage and information retrieval.
Save the production time per section and as such ensure customer satisfaction.
Increase the operational efficiency and accuracy
