Supervision is a line management function by which a person in a position of authority supervises and directs the work of those working under him. This implies that a supervisor is competent by training/experience, to handle the work of a subordinate or a group working under him. Supervisors are used at all situations where a group of people and their work needs to be controlled. Supervisors can be found in all functions of an organization like design, manufacturing, administration, purchase and stores, marketing etc. (McNamara, Managementhelp.org).
