Engineering Production Manager Jobs

Engineering Production Managers plan, co-ordinate and control industrial processes. They ensure that goods and services are produced efficiently, that they are of the right quality, quantity, and cost and that they are produced on time, to the satisfaction of the customer at the right price.

The exact nature of the work for Engineering Production Managers will depend on the size of the employing organisation. However, it will almost certainly involve:

  • drawing up a production schedule
  • working out the human and materials resources needed
  • estimating how long a job will take, costing it, and setting the quality standards
  • monitoring the production processes and adjusting schedules as needed
  • supervising and motivating a team of workers

Typical Duties of an Engineering Production Manager 

At the pre-production stage, the Engineering Production Managers are responsible for the selection and design of equipment, the plant layout, materials handling and production planning (including demand forecasting, production scheduling and ordering of material).

During the production stage, responsibilities encompass production control (the sequencing of jobs, updating time schedules, etc), stock control, quality control, health and safety issues and the maintenance and replacement of production equipment. A large (and often understated) part of production management involves dealing with people, particularly those who work in your team.  You may be responsible for scheduling their work, disciplinary matters, identifying their training needs and progressing their career development.

Engineering Production Managers will generally be educated to a degree level and work their way up in the industry.
