Super Asia is divided into units based onthe products e.g. there is different unit for fan and a different unit for motorcycle production. There are four departments which serve all production units namely:marketing, HR, sales, and accounting departments. Almost every department except HR department, which consists of a single HR manager, has a supervising manager andassisting staff working under him. Marketing department use a wide range of tactics toenhance sales ranging from TV advertisements to lucky draws.

3fast-growing industry. Standard and process costing is used. There is not consistent policy for costing material issues. No separate material wastage reports are prepared.Labor costing is done by using payrolls and time records. Manual time records are used.Factory overheads are absorbed using production as a base. Monthly Budgets areregularly prepared. Entry for sales is booked when GDN is communicated to Accountingdepartment by Godown, and entry for purchases is booked when invoice is received fromsupplier. There is no defined policy for settling payables and receivables, and settlementis mostly done on the directions of directors. The detailed production process is explainedin annexed chart.There were no major flaws found in accounting system of Super Asia with the exceptionof some small discrepancies. Costing System was not up to the mark as it should have been for such a large organization with such huge growing trends. Also, the typicalconservative mentality of owners can be seen in the inadequate and insufficient safetymeasures for the working labor on dangerous machines. Less focus on HR functions isalso another example. Company should understand its growing needs and should comeout of the conservative frame of mind of operating business. Their business is growingand they must modernize their culture and systems to cope for the growing needs.As a concluding note, it is observed that small businesses, with conservative and withowners having wither no or traditional education, resent to the modernization of cultureand ways of doing business. When these small businesses grow into large organizations,their typical mentality is automatically inherited. This is the case with Super Asia. May be, they are doing a fine business at the present stage, but they have to accept the fact thata revolutionary change in their organizational culture and structure is required to cope for the prospective needs of their immensely growing business.
