Slovak University of Technology Faculty of Material Science and Technology in Trnava. PRODUCTION LOGISTICS. Production Capacities Planning. The Mission of Planning.
Planning of production capacities means to achieve maximal harmony between the capacities of production process and capacity demands resulting from market requests to production process.
Capacity strategy – the goal is to fix longtime development of relation between production capacity and requirements (predicted). The racio between production capacity KJ and predicted requirements PPJ is express as:
KVj= Kj-PPj pre j=1, 2, ...,m
Value KVJ can be:
The aim is to reach asked value of capacity relation KV. When the requirements are less stable then it is more difficult to secure this task. Following the structure of capacity relation KVj= Kj-PPj we can:
There is needed to solve situations when:KV>0, KV<0, that is when we need to reduce or raise production capacities.
Mineralization of material consumption per production unit,
Recovery by another materials,
Rising supply plants,
transfer from another production processes.
Transfer to another production places,
Reducing supply plants.Production Capacity Matching – material consumption
Overtimes, 2 or 3 shifts,
Change of the holidays plan,
Transfer near the other production processes,
Reception or new staff.
The holidays planning,
Partial limitation of period of running,
Shift to another job,
Reducing the staff number.Production Capacity Matching – human resources
