Master production planning: rough cut capacity check using resource profiles

The resource profile as applied in rough-cut capacity checking is computed.


j index of production segment
k index of products
z offset time (lead time)
P-k product k
f(jkz) capacity absorption factor for product k with respect to production segment j in offset period z

The production structure is defined with the help of the graph editor. Consider the following example:

The data assigned to a node are (1.) offset time, (2.) number of production segment, (3.) capacity absorption factors. The number of units of product i required to produce one unit of product j is assigned to the arc from node i to node j. Upon leaving the graph editor the following form displays.

After pushing the button several times the result looks as follows:
