Role of Capacity Planning in Production

Long-term capacity planning is a strategic decision for a company that must be carefully researched before implementation. The placement of equipment and considerations for related work, maintenance access, material needs, operational workflows, AND potential expansion are all critical to production efficiency. After all, plant design and construction are inherently tied to production operations, as form follows function. This course is designed to provide capacity planning training for project managers, operations managers, and operations supervisors. The material presented in this PDH course is also ideal for anyone involved in the process of converting raw materials into finished products who want a fundamental understanding of the factors that influence planning production capacity. Beyond hardware and durable good, such finished products covered in this course include the final documentation of production operations.

Learning Objectives

At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to:
  • Analyze floor plans for optimal workflow.
  • Evaluate current workflows to determine their current efficiency in the production process.
  • Explain and apply the principles of ‘line balancing’.
