Having trouble getting the right number of resources for the right level of production?
Avercast capacity planning software is the solution! Using the information gathered from our industry leading business forecasting software and supply planning software, our capacity planning software is the next logical purchase in your search for a complete supply chain management software suite. Our rough-cut capacity planning software integrates directly with your ERP system and our other software modules to give you a look into your current demand, your future demand, and how your current number of resources is equipped to meet it.
With a visual representation of your capacity, workforce, and demand in the form of graphs and charts, we make it easy to pull the information for both presentation and planning purposes. This allows any department to justify their increase or decrease in resource allocation in a simple way for management. Our system is also constantly updating to keep the information accurate and so you can always refer back to our capacity planning software when ready to act on a decision. You can also receive alerts in your Avercast dashboard that will notify you when an area is approaching max capacity, or another has far too many dedicated resources so that you can stay on top of your workflow and make decisions about contracts, lay-offs, onboarding, purchasing, planning, etc..
Capacity planning software, also known as capacity management software or resource management software, is used to make sure you do not have an over-worked production floor that is constantly stressed about meeting the demand, nor an under-worked workforce that leaves a third of your employees getting paid for sitting around. Capacity planning software provides you with the value of having around the exact number of resources you will need to get the job done comfortably and efficiently in any given month.
Our capacity planning software integrates with your ERP system to monitor your resources and demand throughout the year. Our system also integrates with our planning module and forecasting module to show you a simplified picture of your demand relative to your resources.
No software can predict the future with 100% accuracy. That is why Avercast capacity planning software allows you to create hypothetical scenarios and create multiple plans. Perhaps you are launching a new product around the holiday season in December. You can create a plan of what will happen if that product is extremely successful and see how many more resources you should allocate to that location.
