Production Scheduler

The primary responsibility of the production scheduler is determining daily, weekly, or monthly production activities based on a variety of factors. While developing a schedule, the production scheduler may examine work orders or customer requests, expected delivery dates, plant personnel and equipment capabilities, and inventory availability. The production scheduler then balances these elements to create an actionable and efficient production schedule. In addition to developing the initial manufacturing schedules, the production scheduler adjusts based on changing conditions within the manufacturing pipeline.
