Job Description for Production Clerk

Production clerks are primarily responsible for compiling and managing production data for companies in industrial production, which includes quality control and overseeing the inventories of raw material. They often work in fields such as food production, consumer product manufacturing, and industrial-grade material production, and their daily duties include calculating and managing types and quantities of raw materials to turn into final products. Even the smallest measurements matter, and small mistakes can lead to wide degrees of error in terms of scale production. Hundreds of thousands of an item like a toothbrush may be produced before an error is caught, making any mistake potentially costly, which is why the role of a production clerk is essential in the industry.
