The importance of inventory control in any organization can not be over emphasized. In fact both wholesaler and retail business firm establish and maintain inventones to meet the possible demand of the customers through the avoidance of running out of stock or stock out  cost. And buying higher nice. In addition, minimization of ordering cost, reduction of production cost as well as manufacturing firms keep inventories since manufacturing firms must stock raw materials and component parts in order to meet the demands of the production processes.

Inventory control exists in different size shape and forms to meet a variety of demand. As a result of the importance the current emphasis in management science that refore began with the analysis of inventory control in 1915develop the first economic cot size equation which was probably the beginning problems.

In 1931, Raymond published in is quantity and economy in manufacturer, in which he develop this idea farther attempting to account for a wide variety of condition. In fact, in the past war period, the management science literature has been filled with the analysis of Inventory  and production control system, partly because of the great interest shown by such progressive companies as the Eastman Kodak company, procter and gamble, johson and johson Kodak and a lost of many others.

The word ‘Inventory’ as a stated in the encyclopedia britanica’’ is term use to designate item that are in process of producing goods to be sold. It has also been defined according to migs wand meifs R. as the merchandise which is available fore sale but 

not sold duing  the year constitution the Inventory  of merfchandise bthe year.

Also for clarity sake Burbidge J.L defined it as all of the materials parts supplies expensive tools work in progress and finished products recorded on the book by an organization and kept in the stock room, ware houses or plants ‘’other see it to usable resources that are idle at a given point in time. But in the context of the study of appraising inventory controlling business organization with reference to niger limited. Ikeja which is manufacturing firms Inventory well include raw materials semi finished goods (work in progress) e.g. predict meant from painting and firming (becorceil) as well as finished goods. 

This is different from the way Inventory is viewed in a retail environment such as supper market department shop, were Inventory is generally viewed as the stock of goods or sales. It mat how ever, according to Davis et al (1786) include non physical asset such as each account receivable and personnel.

In the general Inventory is associated with manufacturing and retailing firms. Although equipment suoolies and personnel  are all integral inventories for organization such as hospital, universities, and other public services organization there fore, wagner (1989) concludes the Inventory  mode plays the same role in the field of operation research as do Newtons elementary laws in the field physical well nearcy the same role. Even though the situation considered by the model is idealized, the encompass many of the important consideration for chosen an Inventory policy.


A cost of business of recent are falling in the country to meet demand of  their customers through running out stock some of this firms are attributing this to the vacling economic depression in the country but this explation show ever quite unsatisfactory the research opines that most problems associated with firms especially nigerrite limited in running out of stock to meet customers need, buying of raw materials at higher prices thereby  producing at high cost in due to the improper application  Inventory control.

The issue here is that customers would then begin to ask question such as ‘‘ is Nigerite limited having finance problem? Are the funds provided reducing year out? Or is there any form of mismanagement? What wad situation some years bank in the organization? As question being asked by customers so also the management or the organization is face with some problems such as ‘why are we sometime  out or stock what should be stocked? How many? When should replenishment be affected? In what amount ? how should we adjust production when sales are uncertain/unpredicated?

What capacity will examine the extent too which Nigeria limited has adopted inventory control in organization and recommend possible ways in which the situation could be bettered.


The major objective of the study include the followings.

1) To examine the extent at which nigerite limited has adopted the use of proper Inventory control in their polly formulation.

2) To identify the organization Inventory  items and their associated cost.

3) To find out the total number of product each machine the organization has can produce either in batches units with     associated dry taken hair for completion of the jogs.

4) To Inventory how the organization places order or their raw materials with associated cost.

5) To find out recording  quantity of each of raw materials uses and average number of days each of the producer takes before being and the carrying cost.

6) lastly and most importantly to make useful recommendation to Nigerite limited and other similar organization based on the finding of the study.


Inventory control as already indicated in the background of the study is very importance to businessmen due to it’s numerous applications or properly applied such as the avoidance of the organization faced with the problems of running but of stocks.profit maximization especially when they are anticipated price increase minimization of nordering cost reduction of production  cost,shelve display a commodities uncomplying of successive operation in the process of making it possible to process a product at a distance from customer or from raw material supplies or two do two operation at a distance from each other e.t.c.

With the benefit derivable from proper application of inventory models as well as various problems still confronting  most manufacturing, retailing or wholesaling firms in Nigeria, which are mostly wrongly attributed to economic depression, whenever they fail to meet customers orders there by costing such customers to their competitors apart from the money  they our to have realized obviously called for this kind of study.


The attention of this project is focused essentially on inventory control to Nigerite limited lagos being the head office where all relevant information needed about others operating plant with in the country easily and ready available and accessible.

Since the write up will not extend beyond how inventory control is beings used in the chosen organization various concept of inventory control and how they are applied to the company under study. Nigerite limited lagos, could be attempted. This will enable us see the relationship between inventory conrol and operating result of the company.


Research study in nigerite is best with a problems which mass prejudice against the researcher themselves under secrecy as well as were time and financial constraints may of this limitation were experienced the course of out study.

However, provement among these limitation were experienced the course limitation were time and financial constantrants. As final year student  we had short time at my disposal for the study. As has to combine it with  other academic work some problems were therefore encounterd in the conduct of the field work it was not quite easy to arrange or personnel intervention with the general manager, propriet or the product manager of the aquan rapha investment company. The national directorate of employment as well the Nigeria banks of commerce and industry limited <NBCL>
