PBS Capacity Requirements Planning


Capacity Planning allows manufacturers to plan optimal production based on requirements and plant capacity. Production bottlenecks and backload problems are identified before they occur. Loading at critical work centers can be planned and simulated. Capacity Planning is a powerful tool for better scheduling, routing, and manpower planning. Important features include:

  • Rough cut capacity planning using "bills of resources" .
  • Conversions of open and planned manufacturing orders to machine and labor resource loads.
  • Reporting timephased resource loads vs. planned work center capacities.
  • Labor hour requirements optionally converted to timephased dollar budgets.
  • Conversion of open and planned purchase orders to timephased dollar budgets.
