A shop foreman is responsible for planning, scheduling, performing, directing, and evaluating the repair and servicing of equipment.

The shop foreman must routinely advise, consult, and help subordinates. They are also responsible for equipment repair schedules and records, including meeting any deadlines or requests by other employees. Additionally, the shop foreman must purchase any necessary parts to complete repairs, and so knowledge of repair procedures and basic computer software (to place orders) is necessary.
