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.

Hello Phil,

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
