Currently, planners continue to utilize spreadsheets to help determine the capacities of their manufacturing systems. Through the use of simulation, the planners will have a better understanding of how resources are utilized, where bottlenecks are located, and where queues develop. By increasing the frequency of the arriving parts and reducing the lot size, this will result in an increase in resource utilization, a reduction in the WIP, and an increase in throughput.However, Taylor  focuses on the challenges that capacity planning poses. ... as MicrosoftAr Excel and analytic models such as queuing models to plan for capacity [Jackson and Johansson, 1997; Robinson and Giglio, 1999; Alexander, anbsp;...
