Lead Author: Nnanna, I.
Co-Author(s): Nnachi, B. and Okafor, G. O.

This study aims to determine the impact of Ansoff model application on marketing performance on INNOSON vehicle manufacturing company. To achieve the objectives of the study, a questionnaire was developed and distributed. The study population consists of all INNOSON vehicle manufacturing Company employees, and convenience sample was selected 150 questionnaire were distributed, 110 were recalled which representing (73%) of the sample. The study finds that there is a strong impact of Applying Ansoff Model (market penetration strategy, product development strategy, market development strategy, diversification strategy) on marketing performance in INNOSON vehicle manufacturing Company. The study made some recommendations which enable the decision makers to use the strategies of Ansoff Model in effective way, this will help INNOSON vehicle manufacturing Company to increase the levels of marketing performance and to achieve its objectives, as survival, growth, achieve benefits and profits

Paper Title: ASSESSMENT OF WATER SOURCES, PREVALENCE OF WATERBORNE DISEASES AND SOCIODEMOGRAPHIC CATEGORIES FOR BETTER FOCUSING OF INTERVENTION EFFORTS IN HOUSEHOLD DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES
Lead Author: Amatobi, D. A.
Co-Author(s): Adenaike, O. A.

This paper provides the basic data for better focusing of intervention efforts for the provision of safe drinking water for household communities. The study surveyed households in 11 communities and obtained information from 330 water consumers in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Nigeria. Data was generated on the sources of drinking water, prevalence of waterborne diseases and socio-demographic categories. Water samples from the major sources of drinking water in the study area were taken and analyzed for colonies of microorganisms, coliform organisms and E-coli. The sources of drinking water in the study area are the water boreholes (71.21%) sachet water (9.70%), spring water (8.79%), harvested rainwater (6.67%) and others (3.63%). The prevalence of waterborne disease include typhoid fever (20%), diarrhea (14.55%), dysentery (7.27%) and Hepatitis A (1.52%). The prevalence of typhoid fever and diarrhea was high among consumers of water from boreholes and sachet water, which are the major sources of drinking water. The study found a strong association between age bracket and prevalence of waterborne diseases ((R2 = 0.855, F = 15.720, P < 0.005). The study concludes that safe drinking water interventions in the study area should focus more on improving microbial water quality in terms of water abstraction, treatment and storage. The study recommends that stakeholders who offer safe drinking water interventions supply in Afikpo and Unwana Towns should consider the provision of hardware/technical facilities that are simple to maintain and that guarantee safe water quality in the long run.

Paper Title: DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF A PORTABLE ELECTRICALLY POWERED ALUMINIUM CAN CRUSHING MACHINE
Lead Author: Nnanna, I.
Co-Author(s): Otuu, J. B., Nnachi, B. O.

This work aimed to design and fabricate a portable electric Can Crusher machine to reduce the scrap volume and use the Cans so that carrying them to the recycle site becomes easy. Now-a- days, a large number of cans are used in hotels, canteens etc. and a large volume of space is required for storing or dumping the used Cans. This project includes fabrication of a Can Crusher using single slider crank mechanism which will reduce the volume of cans at least 70%. This report demonstrates the necessary calculation, assembling and fabrication of the machine. Under this project work, two Can Crushers have been constructed. The earlier one, made during the period of 7th semester was manually operated. The model is then upgraded to an electrically operated one. Finally, a comparison between the two Can Crushers, i.e. manually operated and electrically operated, is made, regarding their efficiencies, cost of construction etc, and presented here in this report.

Paper Title: EFFECT OF WELDING CONSUMABLES ON THE MICROSTRUCTURE OF WELD JOINT IN A WELDED MILD STEEL
Lead Author: Nnachi, B. O.
Co-Author(s): Jasper, C. O.

The paper looks on the effect of welding consumables on the microstructure of a welded mild steel. Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon and it is usually cast into malleable form. Welding is the process of coalescing materials such as metals or thermoplastic in order to seamlessly join them. The welding processes undertaken in this work were shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and the electrodes used were E6013 and E7018 and oxy-accetylene was used with mild steel filler metal. Preparation of test samples and the methallurgical phenomena involved were carried out using the required equipment. The effect of welding on the microstructure of a welded mild steel and microstructural examinations were also studied and presented. The results of the study are shown in picture form and discussions and conclusion were also given.

Paper Title: EFFECTS OF HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARD ON PRODUCTIVITY AT ENGINEERING WORK PLACES: A CASE STUDY OF SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE, ENUGU (SEDI-E)
Lead Author: Isaac, R. O.
Co-Author(s): Lilian, A. O.

Over years’ work related accidents have temporarily or permanently disabled workers as a result of inadequate safety knowledge on handling machines and equipment, neglecting to follow simple procedure in accomplishing task or management not providing the right safety standards and resources for employees. This has also resulted in low productivity by the workers. Implementation of health and safety standards is the only remedy to this organizational challenge on productivity. The aim of this study is to identify the health and safety standards in Scientific Equipment Development Institute, Enugu (SEDI-E), to determine the effect of health and safety standards on employees’ productivity, to determine employees’ level of understanding of health and safety policies, to assess the attitude of management towards the health and safety of employees and to identify challenges of the implementation of health and safety standards in the organization. This can be achieved by organizing staff and management training on the significant of health and safety measures and its applications on day to day work activities. This training should also have legal back up for effectiveness and efficiency. Results from the descriptive survey design in SEDI-E show that a distinctive number (69) representing 98.57% of the staff agreed in implementation of health and safety standards in response to the questionnaires shared to 70 selected staff members.
