YO-6200.3200 Industrial Production Managers
Individuals who coordinate the resources and activities required to produce millions of goods every year in North America. Responsibilities include production scheduling, staffing, procurement and maintenance of equipment, quality control, inventory control, and the coordination of production activities with those of other departments.

They monitor the production run to make sure that it stays on schedule and correct any problems that may arise.
