Core Occupational Profile

The broad purpose of the engineering manufacturing technician is to provide specialist technical support for engineers. In effect, this is done so that organisations can develop, produce or test new/existing products, processes, or procedures. Therefore, meeting a customers specification in terms of quality, cost and delivery, as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Accordingly, Engineering Manufacturing Technicians gather information and data from a range of sources and analyse the information/data. Furthermore, they will make decisions, solve problems and produce and/or update technical documentation, reports or specifications covering areas such as quality, reliability, production schedules/targets, costing or other technical documentation that informs others, either internally or externally what needs to be done such as how a product must be designed, manufactured, tested, modifed, maintained, stored, transported, commissioned or decommissioned.
