1.0 GENERAL INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

No doubt that for any manufacturing company to grow easily, there must be as way to process their cost in order to achieve the organizational objectives. 

Management needs a variety of information to plan for the future activities, assist in the measurement of efficiency and effectiveness in essence of machine, men, materials and money ton control and to make decisions. Information regarding the financial aspect of performance in any organization is provided by the costing system. Cost per unit of running a section, department or factory, wages costs for unit of production or per period of production, scrap or rectification cost, behavior with varying levels of activities and so on are provided by costing system.

Ever since the use of money replaced barter, it is the concentration of manufacturing facilities into factories that give impetus to the development of recognizable costing system. The early developments were almost entirely related to manufacturing concerns but today costing is used very widely in the hospitals, transport undertakings, local authority offices, and banks as well manufacturing companies.

1.1 AIMS AND OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

i. To examine the effect of cost system in the quality of the product of the company.

ii. To examine the effect of cost system on the production of the organization.

iii. To examine the significance of cost system control in the price to NBC profits.

1.2 PROBLEM OF THE STUDY

The main characteristics of manufacturing firms are that obtain raw materials and component and convert them into finished goods ready for sales. The problem arises as to how to account for the cost of these products. Problem also arises as to determination of the value or worth of raw materials and work inn progress at each process.

1.3 BRIEF HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE CASE STUDY

Nigeria Bottling Company came into existence on 8th May 1886, Late A.G Leventis founded the company and was the first in this country to be offered franchise by an international “Soft drink firm”. The first plant which was sited in Lagos went into operation in March 1953. Coke was the first soft drink to have its own designed shaped bottles, which was different from the company, went public by the issue of 372,500 ordinary shares of 50kobo each. This was in compliance with the Nigerian Enterprise promotion Decree of 1972.

Some years after the Ibadan plant was opened (through later shut down due to non-availability of good water in Ibadan metropolis) that of Port Harcourt was established and many others followed of which Ilorin plant came into existence in April 1979 so as to be able to meet the demands of the customers in the region. Ilorin plant was mainly established to meet the needs of the people in Bida, Jebba, Ogbomosho, Okene, Osogbo, Kontagora, Ijagbo, Offa, Lokoja and Ilorin metropolis. The plant has 8 managers.

Extremely high standard of hygiene are maintained are maintained to ensure that tip quality product reach their customers. Ranging Nigeria Bottling Company as a whole its performance is highly appreciated.

1.4 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The study intends to appraise eh process costing system in the manufacturing company as a whole with reference to NIGERIAN BOTTLING COMPANY (NBC) COCA-COLA ILORIN PLANT.

Manufacturing Company as a whole have little or no different in their costing system, hence effort will be made to pay s significant attention to the various accounting books and records most particularly the one involving cost kept by NIGERIA BOTTLING COMPANY (NBC) COCA-COLA ILORIN PLANT. The study will be restricted to the worker in the manufacturing mangers in the organization. However, the major constraints in the confidentiality over certain vital documents which the company may not be willing to release for the fear of getting to the hand of the competitors cost for a broader and effective scope of the study is also a limiting factor. Therefore conducting the research in many materials that the researcher cannot afford, the researcher will also combine this study with academics work simultaneously.
