To maximize profit a business must manage its resources effectively. Whether those resources are machines or people, it is essential to balance the work to be done by those resources to keep customer service at the desired level. This means managing productive capacity well. A company must understand the capacity of its resources; understand the amount of work to be done by those resources and work to balance those items. Too much work means either overtime or unhappy customers. Too little work means paying for resources to remain idle.
During this focused, one-day workshop, you will learn how to quantify the capacity available in your business. This could be a single person or machine or the entire business. You will also learn how to calculate the quantity of work to be done, then how to schedule the work in line with your available resources. Join us to learn about it!
