Optimizing Production and Inventory
Capacity Planning

Manufacturers facing seasonal issues or an ever-changing business need to consider the long term impacts of capacity on their ability to satisfy customer demand. Knowing when to build inventory, increase staffing, or run overtime is key to managing capacity issues effectively. With a longer term view, P3 creates visibility into how well future needs will be met and at what cost.

Furthermore, as manufacturers seek to apply lean thinking and become more demand-driven, the impact of shorter minimum run sizes, faster changeovers, smaller upstream batches, and flexible production cycles must be clearly understood. By taking the “rough” out of Rough Cut Capacity Planning, P3 allows companies to better understand the impact of these changes on their longer term capacity and costs.
