Manufacturing corporations employ a full range of workers responsible for producing the company's products on a daily basis. As production duties vary from department to department, the corporation must employ a production coordinator to control the work flow from all departments so the production schedule is completed on time and the overall quality of the produced goods is above average.
Oversees Master Production Schedule
To make sure a new production order can stay on schedule using specific material goods and budgetary considerations, the production coordinator has the responsibility of reviewing the production schedule already in place. As the production coordinator looks over the schedule, he revises the schedule for changing work order specifications, lack of material goods and other schedule-altering conditions.
Distributes Departmental Work Orders
During the week, the production coordinator must compile new work orders for other supervisors in charge of separate departments. These work orders contain technical specifications regarding new product information, the exact amount of units needed for the new production schedule, the proposed completion date of new products and the types of products to be completed as soon as possible.
Writes Daily Production Reports
Because major manufacturing productions can run into problems that slow down production, an important production coordinator job duty is to write a daily production report. These reports verify the exact reasons a production schedule has been delayed as well as detail the accelerated progress of a production. Equipment failures, management issues and employee firings are written about in great detail by the production coordinator so the company's owners can figure out what they need to do to get production back on schedule.
Maintains Inventory Control
To ensure the manufacturing process runs as smoothly as possible, the production coordinator must maintain a close look at the company's inventory of material goods needed to complete the production. This involves conferring with other department heads on a regular basis and asking how many units of individual products they have in inventory as well as ordering new supplies as soon as possible.
