A Day in the Life of a Machining Manager:
As the Machining Manager, you develop and manage methods for monitoring safety, quality, productivity and delivery. You effectively balance your time between office work and being physically present to assist with Machining challenges on the shop floor. You routinely communicate with other members of the Operations Leadership Team to ensure priorities and expectations are aligned.
Your day may start out with review of Epicor ERP reports followed by a quick check-in with your team. You monitor load versus capacity by function and develop both short and long term plans to meet demands. You actively participate in Tier 2 meetings with other production departments to ensure priorities, labor plans and quality issues are understood. From there, you head out to the shop floor to gather more information and take necessary actions to share information, address inefficiencies, and clear barriers for your team. You are responsible for performance of the machining team and routinely manage this through daily huddles, one on one meetings, performance evaluations, positive recognition and following up on issues that arise.
Meanwhile, you support and advance our culture of continuous improvement and help move suggestions from ideas to implementation. You effectively use technology tools to measure results of these actions and make adjustments based on data. You align improvements with a documented process and drive standardization of best practices. You collaborate with other Operational Leaders to identify meaningful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and promote understanding within your team. It is critical to ensure transparency in expectations and that the team is driving toward continuous improvement.

You effectively balance the day to day responsibilities of your position with expectations of all managers including review of safety incidents, demonstrating ROI for capital expenditures, developing training tools and partnering with HR in the staffing process.
