Relationships with occupations

Essential skill

Manufacture braided products is an essential skill of the following occupations:

Braiding machine operator: Braiding machine operators supervise the braiding process of a group of machines, monitoring fabric quality and braiding conditions. They inspect braiding machines after set up, start up, and during production to ensure the product being braided is meeting specs and quality standards.
Textile machine operator: Textile machine operator supervises the textile process of a group of machines, monitoring quality and productivity. They inspect textile machines after set up, start up, and during production to ensure the product meets specs and quality standards.
Textile technologist: Textile technologists develop and supervise production systems for textiles.

Optional skill

Manufacture braided products is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Textile pattern making machine operator: Textile pattern making machine operators create patterns, designs and decoration for textiles and fabrics using machines and equipment. They choose which materials to use and check the quality of the textiles both before and after their work.
Braiding textile technician: Braiding textile technicians perform operations related to setting up the braiding process.
Textile machinery technician: Textile machinery technicians set up, maintain, inspect and repair mechanical and computer-controlled machinery used in textile manufacturing such as weaving, dyeing and finishing machines.
Textile printer: Textile printers perform textile printing operations.
Weaving machine supervisor: Weaving machine supervisors monitor the weaving process. They operate the weaving process at automated machines (from silk to carpet, from flat to Jacquard). They monitor fabric quality and condition of mechanical machines such as woven fabrics for clothing, home-tex or technical end uses. They carry out maintenance works on machines that convert yarns into fabrics such as blankets, carpets, towels and clothing material. They repair loom malfunctions as reported by the weaver, and complete loom check out sheets.
Textile product developer: Textile product developers innovate and perform product design of apparel textiles, home textiles, and technical textiles (e.g. agriculture, safety, construction, medicine, mobile tech, environmental protection, sports, etc.). They apply scientific and technical principles to develop innovative textile products.
Knitting machine operator: Knitting machine operators set up, operate and monitor knitting machines. They work with specialised machinery, techniques and materials to process threads of yarn into knitted products such as clothing, carpets or rope. They maintain and repair knitting machinery and ensure operations run without problems.
Textile process controller: Textile process controllers perform textile process operations, technical functions in various aspects of design, production and quality control of textile products, and cost control for processes. They use computer aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) tools in order to ensure conformity of entire production process to specifications. They compare and exchange individual processes with other departments (e.g cost calculation office) and initiate appropriate actions. They analyse the structure and properties of raw materials used in textiles and assist to prepare specifications for their production, analyse and interpret test data.
Textile quality inspector: Textile quality inspectors ensure that the manufactured of textile products is compliant with predetermined specifications.
Weaving textile technician: Weaving textile technicians perform operations related to setting up weaving processes.
Knitting machine supervisor: Knitter supervisors supervise the knitting process of a group of machines, monitoring fabric quality and knitting conditions. They inspect knitting machines after set up, start up and during production to ensure that the product being knit meets specifications and quality standards.
Textile finishing machine operator: Textile finishing machine operators operate, supervise, monitor and maintain the production of textiles finishing machines.
