Production Planning Manager
Production Planning Manager jobs
The role of a production planning manager is to prepare strategies to ensure an organisation meets its business objectives and that customer satisfaction remains high.
Although the role may vary from company to company, a person in this position will generally work with heads of different departments - such as materials planning, factory scheduling, account management, procurement, logistics, sales and marketing.
With their input, production plans will be created and steps taken to ensure projects are completed on time, within budget and to the required quality standards.
As a team leader, a production planning manager will also be tasked with the effective management of staff, ensuring each person is properly trained and motivated. Scheduling shifts, carrying out performance reviews and taking part in the hiring process may also be part of the job description.
The skills required
Anyone seeking a new role as a production planning manager should be familiar with planning techniques and methodologies.
You will need a good understanding of operational systems and procedures, as well as forecasting, materials resource planning and bills of materials. In addition, knowledge of customer services, production scheduling, materials planning and other related functions can be of benefit.
Organisation and communication skills are essential, as you will need to deliver regular reports on all areas of the supply chain. In addition, you should be a self-motivated individual with the ability to thrive in busy work environments.
