This formative assignment seeks to develop and assess skills associated with basic modern ICT tools and competence in the techniques of Rough-Cut Capacity Planning and Financial Appraisal in the context of manufacturing systems engineering.  

These skills will be developed through original thought and the use of library investigations, course notes, and general-purpose office software to:

  • Calculate the load generated by a projected sales forecast on a company's resources;
  • Suggest a level of capacity needed to meet this load
  • Perform a financial appraisal of the proposed system
  • Produce a report documenting the processes used and making a recommendation for management action.
