Capacity Planning & Management
Capacity Planning is the practice of analyzing workloads and comparing them to customer demands. This process is detailed and every changing but necessary to ensure production schedules are on time and customer needs are met. PEKO engineers are adept at creating comprehensive plans for exactly this reason.
Machinery and Equipment Manufacturing is capital and resource intense. Custom assembly cells are created, precision fabrications are scheduled, Bill of Materials items are ordered and labor resources are allocated. This delicate choreography is the integral part of capacity management that takes manufacturing experts to accomplish. Flexibility is built in the plan because at PEKO we understand your forecasts may change based on industry trends, supply chain, funding and a host of other reasons.
