Performing of maintenance schedules Dealing with malfunctions and faults Keeping machinery and tools clean, organized and maintained Resetting production machinery Maintaining machinery log books and production reports Alignment of work with various departments Assuring and controlling the correct functioning of the machinery under his supervision Controls consumptions of raw materials and auxiliary materials Informing management with correct production- data Responsible for the quality of the final products, In direct collaboration with the QC department Supervision and assistance of the operators’ work in the production- line.

Complexity The job focuses on repairing, maintaining and replacing (including resetting if required) a variety of equipment and machinery parts. It is also necessary to rectify faults and report the findings. Uses different techniques. Manages technical resources. Must regularly switch between the various aspects. Accuracy is a common prerequisite. Occasionally works with time constraints imposed. Time constraints will sometimes occur due to urgency related work and the need of a continuous production process. The person must be mid-level (technical education) qualified in terms of content and level, supplemented with courses and/or an internal training of several months/ years or experience in a similar function.

Risk factor Errors or negligence at work can result in stagnation of the production process, material damage, unsafe situations and internal and external annoyance. The timely detection of faults depends on adhering to guidelines, checking by others, and to a certain extent, on self-checking.
