They also develop documentation standards, structuring methods and media concepts to effectively communicate product concepts and usage.
Industrial assembly supervisor: Industrial assembly supervisors are in charge of organizing, planning and coordinating assembly operations. They keep track of all the work activities and manage the process for efficient functioning in order to tackle problems such as production loss. They answer to the industrial production and the manufacturing manager.
Industrial mobile devices software developer: Industrial mobile devices software developers implement applications software for specific, professional industrial mobile (handheld) devices, based on the industry needs, using general or specific development tools for device operating systems.
Forestry machinery technician: Forestry machinery technicians maintain and transport forestry machinery. As part of the maintenance of forestry machinery, they make use of specialised software and data recording systems and instruments.
Industrial quality manager: Industrial quality managers monitor and control information assets by detailing processes and procedures to ensure compliance with industrial standards.

Optional knowledge

Industrial software is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this knowledge may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Computer-aided design operator: Computer-aided design operators use computer hardware and software in order to add the technical dimensions to computer aided design drawings. Computer-aided design operators ensure all additional aspects of the created images of products are accurate and realistic. They also calculate the amount of materials needed to manufacture the products. Later the finalised digital design is processed by computer-aided manufacturing machines that produce the finished product.
Calibration technician: Calibration technicians test and calibrate electrical and electronic equipment. They read blueprints and other technical drawings to develop testing procedures for every product.
Pharmaceutical engineer: Pharmaceutical engineers design and develop technologies used in pharmaceutical research and drugs manufacture, advising the pharmaceutical manufacturing plants to maintain and operate those technologies and ensuring the customers` and workers` safety requirements are met. They may also be involved in the conception and design of pharmaceutical manufacturing plants and research centers.
Industrial production manager: Industrial production managers oversee the operations and the resources needed in industrial plants and manufacturing sites for a smooth running of the operations. They prepare the production schedule by combining the requirements of clients with the resources of the production plant. They organise the journey of incoming raw materials or semi finished products in the plant until a final product is delivered by coordinating inventories, warehouses, distribution, and support activities.
Chemical engineer: Chemical engineers design and develop large-scale chemical and physical production processes and are involved in the entire industrial process required for transforming raw materials into products.
