Capacity audit preparation starts already in project calculation and process conception phase, and is confirmed before the kick-off of project specific production means. Despite those planning activities many suppliers have problems to prove sufficient capacity to the customer. Another problem for production/logistics to reach this capacity even if the capacity audit passed successfully.
The training module is animated by an experienced trainer who has executed dozens of capacity audits and during the sessions will share his experience with training participants. One day training session can be extended by one-day on-site workshop.

Your needs are:

  • Eliminate the risk of insufficient production capacity for customer
  • Prepare your plant on capacity audit in a robust way

  • Assure sufficient process capacity over the serial production phase
