Company XYZ - Facility A was working a full schedule and was lacking 47 hours of machine capacity weekly in the sheet metal department. Forecasted demand required an additional 1,022 production hours per week. Thus, Facility A was no longer able to meet demand if current capacity was not increased. As a result, an initiative to increase the capacity of the sheet metal department was conducted. The purpose of this project was to analyze various capacity constraints and opportunities and purchase a new punch shear machine with a steel tower storage system to facilitate the forecasted production plans for Facility A.
