capacity requirements planning

Gen Mgt, Ops
a computerized tracking process that translates production requirements into practical implications for manufacturing resources. Capacity requirements planning is part of manufacturing resource planning and is carried out after a manufacturing resource planning program has been run. This produces an infinite capacity plan, as it does not take account of the capacity constraints of each workstation. Where the process is extended to cover capacity requirements, a finite capacity plan is produced. This enables loading at each workstation to be smoothed and determines the need for additional resources.
