Technical Production Manager Jobs

Technical Production Managers, also known as operations management, play a leading role in the planning, co-ordination and controlling all the resources needed to produce a company's goods and services.

Technical Production Managers ensure that goods and services are produced efficiently and that they are of the right quality, quantity, and cost as well as being produced on time to the satisfaction of the customer.

Many companies are involved in several types of production, adding to the complexity of the job. Managers perform a vital function in overseeing human and materials resources as well as ensuring the maintenance of an efficient production line.

Production planning and operations management 

At the pre-production stage, 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, key 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 part of a Technical Production Manager's role involves dealing with people, particularly those who work in your team, responsibilities may include scheduling work, disciplinary matters, identifying their training needs and progressing their career development.  Operations Management also cover product design and purchasing. In a small firm you may have to make many of the decisions yourself, but in a larger organisation planners, controllers, production engineers and production supervisors will assist you.
