Job Duties of a Computer Operator
In IT companies and even in schools, hospitals, logistics and manufacturing companies, computer systems are of great use for personnel to perform complex computations, managerial and clerical tasks, data storage, inventories and other assignments. More importantly, many companies utilize computers to help operate machines and equipment or else workers would have to perform line production tasks manually. If computer systems are that important, who is tasked to make sure they function effectively?
Allow the computer operator to perform that job. A computer operator supervises the operations of computer hardware systems, maintains them and ensures they are functional and in good-working condition. The computer operator helps troubleshoot system issues and fix them immediately. He can also repair computer hardware or else replace them with new ones.
As the main person responsible to keep the systems running efficiently and smoothly, he reports ahead of the other staff to turn on the controls of computers and related equipment and fix other issues so the persons using them can use them right away when the come to work.
If working for IT companies, he will ensure Internet connection is fast and stable, servers and networks are functioning properly and that there is enough bandwidth for IT workers to perform certain high tech tasks. He will also help protect the establishment's computer system against viruses and Web attacks by upgrading its security systems and installing protection software.
Many times the computer operator will work alongside the staff. For one, they help programmers test or debug new programs, upgrade existing software, backup a few stuff (especially websites) and load files in bulk storage media. They can also review software programs and recommend what to purchase.
But computer operators are not content with just maintenance and troubleshooting but also with record handling and reporting. In their log books they list issue/s that occur within the system, the time of occurrence and action/s taken to resolve them. They also purchase new equipment and train new operators on the job.
