A master scheduler is in charge of orchestrating a company's production schedule. Schedulers coordinate activities and manage employees within a company to make sure deadlines are both reasonable and met on time. Master scheduler duties include streamlining processes for sales and operations to maximize output efficiency as well as making use of extensive industry based knowledge and experience to best achieve business goals. Companies that employ a master scheduler are typically manufacturing based, such as those in the automotive and aerospace industry. There are also many other different types of businesses may have a use for master scheduling.
Master schedulers oversee and help arrange company sales to make sure there are realistic order fulfillment dates and production schedules. A company's inventory and raw materials are managed by a master scheduler, and schedulers often work closely with a company's purchasing department. Close management of inventory allows the scheduler to keep track of supplies to prevent shortages that could cause delays in production. In situations where delays do occur, master schedulers work with all company departments to find solutions and make up for lost time. Serving as a communications bridge within a company is one of the primary functions of a master scheduler, including connecting management and production staff using meetings, reports, and idea exchanges.
