Capacity and Demand Planning So we have figured out a unique place in the circular economy, designed a product/service to deliver value to target customers, and selected an appropriate process to make them, but we still need to answer the following questions: How much to produce What lot/batch sizes to choose When to produce Today’s manufacturing or service rendering is a highly complex process that requires a lot of resources and a considerable amount of planning. We need to make sure our products/services meet customer demand in a timely fashion.
Capacity Planning Terms (I)
SKU (Stock keeping unit): A unique identifier assigned to each product for easier and more efficient record- keeping.
Production function: It is the functional relationship between the quantity of a good produced (output) and factors of production (inputs such as labor, capital, land, technology).
Bill of Materials: BOM specifies the relationship between the end product (independent demand) and the components (dependent demand). It is a comprehensive list of the raw materials, assemblies, subassemblies, parts and components, as well as the quantities of each, needed to manufacture a product.
SKU vs. UPC UPC (Universal Product Code) is used only in the US and Canada, while the EAN (European Article Number) is used everywhere else globally.
Capacity Planning Terms (II) Master production schedule: An MPS is a plan to
produce individual final items. The MPS lays out the production plan for each stage’s quantity.
Materials requirements planning: MRP is a tool that determines what items are required, how many, and when.
MRP II: Manufacturing Resource Planning Enterprise resources planning: ERP is commonly
used by (especially) large organizations to coordinate the ever more complex activities that they perform. Vendors such as SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft are dominating this market segment.
Capacity Planning • Capacity planning is the process of determining
the production capacity needed by an organization to meet changing demands for its products or services.
Capacity has to do with the space available, amount of equipment/machines used, number of people and shifts, manufacturing processes selected, and management efficiency.
So you see a business opportunity to build a plant to make N95 masks during the pandemic. What factors do you take into account when building this plant?
Your N95 Mask Plant
Demand • Physical facilities • Manufacturing
process • Machines • Staffing • Storage room • Production space • Outbound logistics
Capacity Choices/Decisions • How much do we need to produce to meet the
anticipated demand? • Do we buy or make ourselves? How much needs to be
bought or made in the supply chain? • If we buy, do we source domestically or internationally?
How do we manage the procurement process? • If we make, how much do we make and how many
parts and subassemblies, do we need to buy from vendors? Do we set up plants or outsource to contract manufacturers? Domestic or international locations? Do we use automation or manual labor? Should we own or lease equipment/factory?
What’s our contingency plan if demand is higher/lower than our forecasts?
Hotel ONT So you bet on increased travel through the Ontario Airport and would like to build a hotel on a vacant lot your friend owns. How big of a hotel (how many rooms) should you build? Capacity is calculated as number of rooms x 365 x utilization rate (not 100% rooms are available every night). Occupancy rate is the percentage of occupied rooms in your property at a given time. It is one of the most important KPIs and is calculated by dividing the total number of rooms occupied, by the total number of rooms available, times 100, creating a percentage such as 75% occupancy.
