Abstract:

The study examined the annual production unit of motor vehicles of selected foreign countries manufacturers on how it affects the indigenous automobile manufacturer in Nigeria. The study employed data from Organization Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA) using time series period of seven (7) years between 2008 and 2014 which is analyzed using statistical process control method with the aid of a statistical software known as MINITAB 16. The findings in the study which is investigated through the mean chart (X ̿) and standard deviation chart (S ̅) shows that production unit in the selected countries is under control through the quality of their motor vehicles been produce which is affecting indigenous manufacturers in the country as a result of their obsolete technology in place in most of the manufacturing industry. It is therefore recommended that the government should re-shape the indigenous automobile industry for better so that they can compete with their foreign counterparts in the automobile manufacturing industry.
