Capacity planning in QAD can be made to work but the problem is that
most people do not set up all the time elements in the routing. Most
use setup and run, but what about move, queue and wait times? without
all this information the system artificially compresses the total time
to make an item. another under used tool is resource planning which
allows you to create a rough cut capacity plan.

Thank you for your response. Would you suggest going line by line in
our routing and physically going in and analyzing the times or pulling
this information from a browse and manipulating it in MS Excel? My
apologies for the confusion - is there a tab that visualizes the
resource planning in QAD?

Resourse planning does not use routings but either resourse plan or
capacity plan have the option to display the load as a visualization
rather than just numbers
