Capacity Planning for the Supply Chain

Ensure On-Time Delivery and Reduced Costs

Apply these new capacity planning techniques to collaborate with suppliers and manage change and volatility.

Capacity Planning for the Supply ChainToday's world is unforgiving when it comes to suppliers' inability to deliver quality products on time. The only way to assure on-time delivery is to ensure that suppliers have a good capacity management process in place. Contents include the fundamentals of capacity management and how to assure you and your supplier have capacity management fundamentals in place. The instructors will teach what stopgaps to install until your suppliers have implemented an effective capacity management process.

This Oliver Wight course is designed for senior and middle managers, and buyers of companies who are concerned that they have a process for effectively managing capacity.

Given today's economic times, capacity planning and management is getting a lot of scrutiny – and rightfully so. On the one hand, companies must have the capability to fulfill demand. On the other hand, cash is too precious to invest in capacity, production, or materials before they are really needed. Plus, companies need a flexible and cost-effective way to respond to changes in demand, given the current volatility and uncertainties in the marketplace.

That is why Oliver Wight has developed this two-day course on capacity planning for the Supply Chain. We know how to develop an effective capacity planning and management process that is oriented around the entire supply chain, not just your company. We have more than 40 years of experience in helping companies to do so.

In this course, the attendees will learn how to:

  • Perform analysis and scenario planning to determine the capacity plan for critical suppliers in the supply chain
  • Implement a process for determining, in a few hours (not weeks or months), whether or not internal and external suppliers have capacity to meet demand
  • Develop a process for re-planning and re-aligning with supply chain partners as demand changes
  • Collaborate with supply chain partners to better communicate information to optimize the performance of the supply chain
  • Conduct a self-analysis of current capacity planning processes to determine what needs to improve to make better capacity investment decisions

Don't experiment to get results. Learn from proven experience.

Oliver Wight instructors have designed this course based on decades of experience in helping companies to implement capacity planning processes. We have the perspective of having the right strategy in place, using effective planning and communication methods, and collaborating among supply chain partners to make the optimal decisions.
