Welcome to the Cove. You've replied to a post from ten years ago, so the chances of a response are not very good, I'm afraid. Feel free to ask questions.
Hello Mr. Wynne, I am quiet in the same situation. I want to find how the competitor companies perform Supplier capacity check. How can be these data collected or where?

Thanks in advance.

I can't add anything to what's already been posted in this thread. Potential suppliers aren't necessarily going to be honest about the subject, so the only way to have confidence in what they tell you is to visit them and observe. Ninja suggested look at Run at Rate, but that's generally done after a supplier is chosen.

True. [email protected] essentially CONFIRMS that capacity is adequate, and typically is done after supplier is chosen.

The initial "capacity check" I've seen from customers is a question to me (me=supplier): "Do you have capacity to handle this? (Y/N)"

Side note: Since "Run" means make stuff, there is often money involved...making stuff costs money.
