Job Description for Material Planner

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.
