Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP)


Capacity requirements planning (CRP) is the evaluation of planned production to determine if it can be accomplished within the capacity limitations of manufacturing facilities.

A capacity load projection is completed for each item in the master production schedule. The calculated load requirement is compared to available capacity, thus determining underutilization or overutilization of facilities.[1]
