Implementation of Capacity Planning and MRP II

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

Thank you for your input. As a software developer, your justification is reasonable. However, in real industrial environment, capactity of shop floor is a genuine problem that industrialists need to manage and plan, even in the college capacity planning/MRP II is a subject that students and professors need to tackle with, and it is a critical in cost and delivery efficiency. As a webERP user, I would like to seek for your valuble suggestion and advise in handling the shop floor capacity problem by applying webERP.

Thank you!

Best regards,

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.
