For a production control analyst, improving efficiency is the name of the game. The production control analyst dedicates their workday to ensure that the company's production processes are as efficient as possible and that all processes are accurate.
The production control analyst performs various day-to-day tasks to control processes and computer programs for quality and efficiency. They use kanban techniques to expedite project management, provide status reports to managers and customers, and regularly monitor systems. They also suggest possible improvements to others in the company.
Production control analysts need to know a lot about business and technology in order to do their job well. It's no wonder that most get a bachelor's degree in business or computer science. They also develop their skills by working as operations analysts. About 60% of production control analysts are men, so maybe it is time to break this glass ceiling.
