Re: Capacity Utilization - How to do a capacity utilization project

A bit late to the party but...

It sounds like your talking rough cut capacity planning, which is rather straight foward (again rough cut). How many parts/products/widgets can you produce in a given period of time (typically calculated per hour).

Then chart that out on a bar graph against the orders you have or the forecasted orders per week or month. If at any point those numbers go above the hours available then you have a capacity problem and need to "flatten" it out into another time period or find ways to raise the capacity level.
