Implementation of Capacity Planning and MRP II

RE: Implementation of Capacity Planning and MRP II
I guess what I am saying here is from a reality/business perspective, that capacity planning is best handled outside the system ... IMHO.
I am aware that some ERP systems purport to be able to handle this - from what I have seen they do not do an adequate job and the inputs required are way out of proportion to what is sensible and the theoretical capacity plan of the system often bears no relation to the real capacity constraints on the factory floor.

Some of my experience is with plastic injection moulding - and there were several machines that a die could be put on and the loading of each machine needed to be taken into account - the die changes and run sizes and sequence of assembly for subsequent dependent assemblies all made such planning mindlessly complex. Better to drive this all through "pull" and KISS.

Then work on the bottlenecks put the effort into faster die changes or another die/ faster machine/machine upgrade etc.

There is no facility in webERP to handle capacity requirements planning.
