Abstract

AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES IN NIGERIA - A WAY FORWARD. A CASE STUDY; ENUGU/ANAMBRA STATES AUTOMOBILE PLANTS

*V. M. Dagala and E. Ayekeson

ABSTRACT

Vibrant automobile manufacturing industries have played significant roles in the industrial growth of many countries. Nigeria however, is yet to develop a viable automobile manufacturing industry comparable to that of the developed countries. Therefore, to this end, a combination of research instrument - questionnaire and observations were employed in collecting data targeting the automobile assembly/manufacturing companies that are present in the country through Pie chart and tables. The study determined that no enough qualified automobile engineers resulting to the production of low quality parts and components. The sector is characterized by the use of conventional machine tools, rudimentary wielding and forming processes to produce low profile parts likewise in small quantities. Computer Numeric Control Machine (CRCM) tools are virtually none in existent in the sector. About 48% of the workers in the industries are mechanic with less involvement of drawing aid applications such as Computer Aided Design (CAD). The welding standards employed in the industries are not as comparable to that of the international standards for joining of components. Due to lack of experts and finances in the industries contributed to the inefficiency of the Automobile productions.
