Manufacturing & Production Organizational Structure Outline

  • Manufacturing & Production

    Manufacturing & Production (also known as just Manufacturing, Production or Assembly) refers to the processes and methods used to turn inputs – whether raw materials, partially finished goods or information (data) – into finished goods and/or services.
    Who is in charge? Chief Operating Officer, EVP/SVP of Operations, Production Supervisor, Production Manager
  • Facility Management
    The facility management function is responsible for regulating the quality, safety and cost of facilities used in the manufacturing of goods or products. They work to improve facility quality and mitigate safety-related and regulatory risks. They are responsible for facility security, worker safety, routine facility maintenance, facility climate control, utilities cost, efficient production floor space usage and layout, and other environmental factors.

  • Manufacturing & Assembly
    The manufacturing and assembly function is responsible for the creation of finished goods and/or products.

  • Manufacturing Engineering
    The manufacturing engineering function designs and develops systems (software applications, processes, work methods, etc.) used during the manufacturing process.

    The production planning group is responsible for preparing a production schedule and ensuring that all of the prerequisites for manufacturing and production are met in an efficient, cost-effective manner.

The production planning function works closely with (and may overlap) the procurement and materials management groups to facilitate efficient production scheduling and execution.
