Rough-cut capacity planning, Mechanical Engineering

A small producer of specialist vehicles is building a new workshop to meet expected demand for its products over a period of 5 years.  The workshop will contain three workcentres, each capable of a different process.

One of the company's managers has been asked to:

  • Predict the workload on the new workcentres
  • Recommend how many units of resource to provide in each workcentre
  • Predict the level of utilisation expected on each workcentre
  • Appraise the likely financial performance of the workshop

Luckily, the manager has been provided with some clear data and knows the relevant analysis methods. Putting yourself in the manager's position, tackle the tasks that follow.
