  • Organise logistical processes for products, tools, process media and residual materials
  • Simulate processes, and produce and test samples and prototypes
  • Operate production plants, monitor process sequences, conduct tests in support of processes and produce documentation
  • Recognise potential for improvement in process sequences
  • Determine and document process and quality deviations, take measures to rectify them and for this purpose, conduct systematic error analyses
  • Evaluate and analyse production plants with regard to the realisation of production orders
  • Use standard software, production and quality assurance software
  • Use norms, specifications and regulations for securing the ability to process of pro-duction plants
