          This project work contain deals with instruction of an overview of inventory control in manufacturing company, it also include the aim and objective of study and scope of study.  Then the profit of Nigeria bottling company plc and its administration were highlighted.  The final summarizes the whole and deductible recommendation, which we think will be advantageous, to the management of Nigeria Bottling company plc and other manufacturing company’s.

1.1            Background of the study
In a manufacturing organization, the need for inventory control is very necessary because it helps the organization to verify the accuracy of stock records with physical stock (records) that is, (materials in the stock) among the numerous purpose of the exercise.
