About the Course

Traditional planning techniques rely on relatively simple means for determining capacity requirements. This course introduces techniques that go beyond some of these simple means to address a way to manage variability.

Course Description

Capacity management is an essential component to assure efficient and effective factory operations. Traditional planning techniques, such as MRP, MRP II and some of the planning components of ERP rely on relatively simple means for determining capacity requirements. These processes are not always as precise as needed. This course introduces techniques that go beyond some of these simple means to address managing variability.
