(2) Improving the management structure of the fishing net weaving machine maintenance planning unit. Result of the study and research showed that after the implementation of the recommened organization structure there was a smooth flow in the management and the workload of entrepreneur was also reduced by the structure. The co-ordination among the various units also improve. The improvement of the management of the maintenance unit also resulted in the reduction of the machine downtime which led to increase productivity of the fishing net weaving machines.
