Production Control has the role within the business to set up the initial schedule for projects to run through the business. We then take the parts issued from the Technical department and create the jobs to allow for Manufacturing and Purchasing to complete their work.

We also have the role of controlling the load in the relevant manufacturing area of the business, and dealing with all technical changes required within project jobs.

Entry qualifications:

People within the department require an analytical nature and a good understanding of engineering processes.
