Production planners... please tell me what you do?

I'm trying to decide whether or not to interview for a production planner position that my friend informed me of (for an automobile/electric plant). My friend told me that I would be a great fit and there are a few areas that interest me, but looking at the description... for the most part, it doesn't seem like anything I would imagine myself normally doing for a job. The position seems to center around working with data, and I'm definitely not the number-crunching type. The problem is... I don't have a great job at the moment and am a little desperate. What does working as a production planner entail? What kind of skills would you say are necessary for this kind of job?
