They will ensure the safe, efficient and environmentally friendly operation of equipment and test products at various stages of production to check their quality. They will make plans and specifications for new production plants, taking into account available technology, the cost and size of equipment and storage space, market requirements, transport methods and disposal of surplus substances. They will review current methods of production for cost efficiency, environmental friendliness, maximum output and optimal product quality and will identify faults in the day-to-day operation of process plants (such as oil refining, steel making and water treatment) and take corrective action. They will prepare reports, feasibility studies and cost analyses of processes and will provide product process information to sales and marketing personnel or customers and will also direct and coordinate the work of maintenance and construction tradespeople or process plant operators.
