Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP)

The best-laid plans are always built on the best information.

Get the most from your resources while meeting customer expectations

When operations are complex and your environment volatile, it’s not easy to know in detail how much labor and machine resources you’ll need to achieve your production plan. Most organizations lack the connectivity between work centers and other parts of the supply chain to gather all the right data and make granular, informed decisions about how to manage capacity and resources at the operational level.

One comprehensive window for all your capacity considerations

Kinaxis Capacity Planning (CRP) consolidates all your supply chain data into a single source so you can easily identify work centers that are over- or underutilized. With a real-time view of how change will affect your resources – and the ability to simulate short- and long-term capacity adjustments – you can know exactly the resources needed to meet customer commitments. You can even compare the results of different capacity scenarios against key performance metrics to choose the one that produces the best overall outcome.
