Sales and Distribution Operations
MANUFACTURING PROCESS AT
•Water is received from the 300 ft. tube-well and it passes through the water treatment plant, further passing through the sand filter and the activated carbon filter, so as to attain pure cleansed water. •In the syrup room, the concentrate received from another bottling plant situated at Pune, is blended with the sugar syrup. •Once both the water and the final syrup are ready, they are both mixed together and sent to the carbonator section where Carbon Dioxide is added to the mixture to form the final product. •On the other hand, simultaneously, the returnable glass bottles are depalletized, inspected and washed for the purpose of filling in the final product in it. This step does not take place in the PET bottle line as the bottles once used are disposed. The product is finally filled in the bottles, crowned (in case of RGB)/ capped (in case of PET bottles), labeled and cased in order to be sent into the warehousefor distribution

Research has no control over variables. •Sample design : Non random sampling •Sample size: 250 •Area of operation : Patna •Tools of data analysis : Pie chart •Research instruments : Questionnaire •Time frame : 8 weeks
Limitations :The time period of study was only for two month so it was not possible to cover all the areas and go into the depth of the problem and make analysis. The area of survey was Patna district and it was concentrated on urban area only. The psychological condition varies from place to place because in many places outlet owner was not supportive. The training was carried on in the peak season so market developer was not so supportive. Some respondents left some of the questions unanswered either due to inability to put a strain on mind or they did not know the answer.
Segmentation model of “cocacola”in Patna
The purpose for segmenting a market is to allow your marketing/sales program to focus on the subset of prospects that are "most likely" to purchase your offering. If done properly this will help to insure the highest return for your marketing/sales expenditures. Depending on whether you are selling your offering to individual consumers or a business, there are definite differences in what you will consider when defining market segments.

sufficient activation elements but remaining 24% outlets are not fully activated. In our study it is revealed that ,67%from the selected outlet follow the Brand Order “COLOJ-K”, but remaining 37%are not following the brand order. 69% of visited outlet, visi-cooler are pure i.e. in visicooler only the product of Coco cola are placed and 31% of outlets don’t keep visi-cooler pure. 67% of visi-cooler are at prime position where consumer can see our product and choose as per there need. 83% outlets are convenience store, 11% are under the E&D and remain under 6% are glossary shop.

• * Lack of pure visi cooler .Purity level is worse condition because lean season. • * Activation Problem. • * During lean season there is lack of special offer to promote selling. • * Availability standard in outlet is not according to terms and conditions of the company. • *There is number of unsatisfied red outlet with admission. • * M.M.P.O is vanished from outlet. • * PepsiCo product is main competitor in market. • *8. In most outlet kinley water and soda is least
Conclusion :• Coca-Cola is the leading soft drink brand in Patna region & most selling brand in the region is • Thums-Up, Sprite and Maaza. * According to most of the outlet owners the product which is seen is sold i.e. "Jo Dikhta Hai Woh Bikta Hai". * Prime position of Visi-cooler outside the outlet plays an important role in the selection of the soft drink by customer. * Few activation elements like Table Top, Glow ShineBoard, Hanger; Road Stand plays a major role in increasing sell of the soft drink. * Supply of product as well as stock keeping unit is not up to the mark.
We must visit all RED outlets where the activation elements are missing and it must be activated immediately. We must visit all RED outlets and arrange the product according to COLOJ-K where products are not placed in the visi cooler according to COLOJ-K. All the MD (Market Developer) needs to visit all the red outlets regularly to keep the visi cooler pure. Prime position of visi cooler enhances the visibility of the product which help consumer to choose the product and some times it influences the customers to switch over from similar product. We should try to increase sale of outlets so that maximum outlets can be converted into upgrade class. We need to put effort to increase the required number of GOD as per the visi cooler size so that they can keep 3 day stock to meet the demand.
