This reduces the risk of production and evaluates the quality of the tobacco used to manufacture cigarettes. This study is based on secondary sources as which helps to get adequate information about the study topic. The implementation cost of the PLC is quite high, and proper training of the employees is needed for the manipulation of the PLC system of production. This is a computerised technology that supports the production process of the organisation and reduces the cost of production in the long term.
