Job Description for Material Planner
A material planner is an essential member of staff in any medium or large manufacturing operation. The material planner ensures a steady flow of all materials needed to keep a manufacturing line operating. This is generally a balancing act; manufacturers do not generally have space to store large quantities of raw materials, so the material planner must ensure adequate supplies without overbuying or wasting resources.Read More...
Depending upon the specific items being manufactured, employers may expect a material planner to have at least a bachelor's degree in engineering, business, logistics, or supply chain management, though other degrees may be desirable depending upon the specific industry in which an employer is situated.
Material planners need to be adept at working both independently and as part of a team. They must be able to do their own research and inventorying of materials, as well as work with colleagues such as those in the purchasing department. In smaller operations, material planners may be the sole point of contact between the manufacturer’s management team and the company’s entire team of suppliers.
Depending upon the type of item being manufactured, a material planner's job may include substantial physical work, such as walking the production line and surveying the inventory space. Depending on industry, these spaces may not be climate controlled, so being able to function in varying temperatures is a valuable asset. In addition to the physical demands of such a job, a highly desirable skill for most material planners is to be an excellent negotiator, to help minimize costs of production and help ensure timely delivery of needed materials.
