Master production planning: rough cut capacity check using
The resource profile as applied in rough-cut capacity checking is computed.
||index of production segment
||index of products
||offset time (lead time)
||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:
