Within the metals industry, the pressure is on for companies to be flexible and responsive in production. You have to be faster than the competition — or risk losing out and incurring losses.

  • Increase delivery performance and customer service levels
  • Decrease inventories by utilizing capacity planning
  • Reduce costs and production lead times

This is an accessible introduction to capacity planning for the metals industry that requires no extensive pre-requisite knowledge on the subject matter.
