Our Production Manager manages each employee on the floor. The production manager must also ensure that the work is completed by the dates our scheduler sets. The production manager must supervise the floor employees to make sure due dates are met.
Our Production Planning department is a two-man department that plans how each job goes through the floor in the most efficient, cost friendly, and customer conscious way. Purchasing materials, speaking with outside service vendors, and talking to customers, is how the production planning department completes their tasks throughout the day.
Our scheduling department consists of one person that sets the due dates for each job on the floor. The scheduler must also make sure that the jobs are moving through the floor in the most efficient way possible, while ensuring that jobs are meeting the dates set by the customer.
