Advanced Manufacturing Technicians set up, test, and adjust plant machinery and equipment, using any combination of electrical, electronic, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, or computer technologies.
Production technicians working in solar manufacturing may use a wide variety of technologies—including electronic, mechanical, and digital—to set up, test, and adjust manufacturing machinery and equipment used in solar installation. Depending on their area of specialty, Advanced Manufacturing Technicians may also help develop, operate, or repair electronic or computer-controlled mechanical systems. They also monitor production processes or equipment for quality and productivity; support supply line engineering in the analysis and reporting of material and product issues; and inspect finished products for quality and adherence to customer specifications.
