Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP)


Real Time Adjustment of Load and Capacity

What is Capacity Requirements Planning?

Capacity requirements planning is the accounting process used by business to determine how much they need to produce and if they are capable of meeting those production goals. Businesses must conduct capacity requirements planning regularly to maintain supply and demand for their goods or services. This process is done by assessing recent sales and inventory records to determine how much of one product or service the business is selling. The Aptean Industrial Manufacturing ERP WorkWise Edition Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP) application offers real time adjustment of Load and Capacity to resolve conflicts. This powerful new function allows users to run simulations and use shop floor scheduling tools to view capacity requirements.
