Use this sample and step by step explanation for setting meaningful and inspiring employee performance goals for a duplicating machine operator.

A duplicating machine operator sets up and operates a duplicating machine to produce duplicate copies from a given master copy. The operator should receive the work orders, sort and prioritize them before processing and then review the copied materials to ensure that work is complete, accurate and of high quality.

Other duties include maintaining and cleaning the duplicating machine, performing minor repairs, adjust the machine to produce high-quality duplicates; setting the machine controls, feeding the master copies into feed rolls ; starting the machine; assemble, cut, wrap, and bind duplicated copies; record the quantity of copies made, maintain and order duplicating supplies.
