Production supervisors, or industrial production managers, are responsible for a variety of job duties.

In small
manufacturing facilities, production supervisors may oversee entire plants, while in larger operations they may only
oversee a single department. Additional responsibilities often include coordinating, planning, and directing all
activities involved in the production of goods.
Employment Responsibilities
Employment duties are a vital part of a production supervisors responsibilities. These responsibilities include hiring,
training, evaluating and retaining employees. Monitoring employees while they work is another responsibility. By
watching the employees work, the production supervisor ensures that each member of the team is meeting his
performance requirements, and that all safety standards are being followed. When the performance of an employee
falls below the accepted standards, it's the production supervisor's duty to take corrective action and make
recommendations to improve compliance.
Scheduling Responsibilities
Scheduling responsibilities are another portion of a production supervisor's job duties. It's up to the production
supervisor to determine how best to utilize the workers in order meet production goals as efficiently as possible. One
way of accomplishing this is by monitoring the amount of authorized overtime employees are allowed. Another way
is through manipulating production schedules. For example, in slow times, only operating one or two shifts a day
may help to reduce unnecessary costs. However, in busy times, it may be necessary to increase production to 24
hours a day, and possibly even hire temporary employees to fill in any gaps.

Financial Responsibilities
Every production supervisor has a budget to follow, and it's important that operation costs stay within it. For
example, it takes careful planning to estimate the amount of raw materials it will take to meet production goals, and
not go over the budget. Another budgeting example is determining when overtime is financially justified. Other
financial responsibilities besides approving expenses for supplies and staffing include reviewing production orders
and financial reports for accuracy.
Efficiency Responsibilities
Since operational efficiency plays a vital role in profitability, production supervisors need to always be on the
lookout for ways to make improvements. One method of increasing efficiency involves saving time by finding ways
to cut steps out of the production process. Another method may involve purchasing new equipment to produce more
products in less time. The way a business handles inventory also affects efficiency. For example, a business that
practices lean manufacturing techniques can save money by not keeping an excess of inventory on hand. Having
excess inventory takes space, costs money to store, and could potentially end up a total loss if the products end up
not being purchased or used.
