What does an Associate Director, Production Management do?

Production managers determine the best way for a plant’s workers and its equipment to meet the company or plant’s production goals for goods including cars or paper, all while they ensure the production stays on schedule and within an allotted budget.

Production managers track and create production schedules according to client’s needs, specifications, and projected budgets, and discuss the logistics with their clients. They can train new employees, and they ensure the proper health and safety regulations are being adhered to throughout the duration of the production cycle. They also handle the scheduling for the routine maintenance of production equipment in use, and coordinate, plan, and direct activities that are used for the production of goods. They also create opportunities to make a process or procedure more efficient and determine if any new equipment or machines need to be procured. Production managers need a minimum bachelor’s degree in related industries, including supply chain management, industrial engineering, or business management.
