Implementation of Capacity Planning and MRP II

RE: Implementation of Capacity Planning and MRP II
Hi Pete,

I am not aware of anyone working on this currently.

My own view of this is that there are a number of factors that affect capacity and that attempting to model this in software is so complex and fraught with difficulty that it is better to focus on the practical stresses in the manufacturing facility to identify the bottlenecks/constraints and eliminate those, rather than throw money at additional labour to overcome identified software/theoretical modeled capacity constraints. Too many assumptions are required in the software I have used previously and the work/input required is so extensive and the results questionable.

The factory floor is where capacity needs to be managed IMHO.
