    It is used for resource levelling, i.e. capacity levelling. Rough-cut planning is based on time buckets and determines requirements of resources (machines, humans, production resource tools) and materials.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the helpful answers. I am one more question to add. Would rough-cut planning enable a planner to determine whether they can meet customer requirements - giving them the dates and quantities that can be fulfilled by each customer order? Is that possible?

    Thanks.

    Rgds,

    Sue

    hi,

    Production planning enables the planner to create feasible production plans across the different production locations (also with subcontractors) to fulfill the (customer) demand in time and to the standard expected by the customer. For the long and medium-term time horizon,

    rough-cut planning

    is based on time buckets and determines requirements of resources (machines, humans, production resource tools) and materials. Solvers, real-time data, and high supply chain visibility (KPIs, alerts) support the planner´s decision-making process.

    Hope this helps !!!
