Rough Cut Capacity Planning (RCCP)

This chapter covers the following topics:

Overview

RCCP verifies that you have sufficient capacity available to meet the capacity requirements for your master schedules.

RCCP is a long-term plan capacity planning tool that marketing and production use to balance required and available capacity, and to negotiate changes to the master schedule and/or available capacity. You can change your master schedules by changing master schedule dates and increasing or decreasing master schedule quantities. You can change your available capacity by adding or removing shifts, using overtime or subcontracted labor, and adding or removing machines.

RCCP is a gross capacity planning technique that does not consider scheduled receipts or on-hand inventory quantities when calculating capacity requirements. Your rough cut capacity plans are therefore a statement of the capacity required to meet your gross production requirements.

Use RCCP to validate your master schedules against key and critical resources before you use the planning process to generate detailed MRP plans. This ensures that you use a realistic, achievable master schedule to drive the planning process.

You can perform rough cut capacity planning at two levels:

If you want to use RCCP, but would like to restrict the process to key or critical resources, you can define groups of selected resources and review RCCP plans for specific resource groups only. You can define resource groups in Oracle Capacity and Oracle Bills of Material. You assign resources to resource groups in Oracle Bills of Material.

Routing-Based RCCP

Routing-based RCCP calculates and compares required capacity to available capacity for the individual resources you assign to operations on your routings. Required and available capacity are stated in hours per week per resource.

Required Hours Calculation

Routing-based RCCP:

The following table shows three master schedule entries for A and illustrates how, for each entry, routing-based RCCP calculates required hours and dates for D1, R2. Remember that during the bill of resource load, Oracle Capacity calculated that 24 hours of D1, R2 is required to build one unit of A, and that setback days for D1, R2 is 3 days. In this example, 10 units of item A are required on 07-FEB. Routing-based RCCP calculates the required hours as 10 x 24 = 240 hours, and the required date as 07-FEB - 3 days = 02-FEB. 05-FEB and 06-FEB are non workdays.

Required Hours and Required Dates for D1, R2
Item Master Schedule Date Master Schedule Qty Required Hours Required Date
A 07-Feb 10 240 02-Feb
A 10-Feb 10 240 07-Feb
A 15-Feb 10 240 10-Feb

The following table illustrates how routing-based RCCP buckets the required hours for D1, R2 into weekly buckets. The example assumes that the first bucket starts on 31-JAN.

Bucketed Required Hours and Required Dates for D1, R2
Week Start Date Department Resource Required Hours
31-Jan D1 R2 240
07-Feb D1 R2 480

Available Hours Calculation

Routing-based RCCP calculates available hours for a resource using the resource availability information you define in Oracle Bills of Material.

You can define resources, departments, shifts, and shift calendars in Oracle Bills of Material. Having defined your departments, resources, and shifts, you can assign shifts to resources and resources to departments.

Routing-based RCCP calculates available hours for a resource by summing the available hours for each shift that uses the resource using the following formula:

available hours = capacity units x shift hours per

day x shift days per week x efficiency x utilization

For 24 hour resources, routing-based RCCP modifies the formula as follows:

available hours = capacity units x 24 hours per day x

workdays per week x efficiency x utilization

Capacity units represents the number of resource units available to a department. Shift hours per day and shift days per week reflect the availability times you specify for each shift. Workdays per week reflect the number of workdays in the week based on the workday calendar you define using the Define Workday Calendar window in Oracle Bills of Material.

The following table illustrates how routing-based RCCP would calculate available hours for D1, R2 assuming that you have assigned it to two shifts, Shift 1 and Shift 2. In this example, the available hours for D1, R2 on Shift 1 is 2 x 6 x 5 x.90 x 1.2 = 64.8 hours. Routing-based RCCP would calculate the total hours available for D1, R2 as 64.8 + 86.4 = 151.2 hours per week.

Available Hours for D1, R2
Shift Capacity /Units Shift Hours/Dat Shift Days/Week Shift Efficiency Shift Utilization Available Hours
1 2 6 5 .9 1.2 64.8
2 2 8 5 .9 1.2 86.4

Load Ratio

Routing-based RCCP calculates capacity load ratio for each resource by dividing the total required hours per week by the total available hours per week, using the following formula:

capacity load ratio = required hours / available hours

The following table illustrates how routing-based RCCP would calculate capacity load ratio for D1, R2 for the weeks starting 31-JAN and 07-FEB. In this example, the capacity load ratio for D1, R2, for the week starting 31-JAN, is 240/140 x 100% = 171%

Capacity Load Ratio for D1, R2
Week Start Date Required Hours Available Hours Load Ratio
31-Jan 240 140 174%
07-Feb 480 140 343%

Notice that rough cut analysis reveals that D1, R2 is overloaded in both periods. This is illustrated in the following diagram.

Rate-Based RCCP

Rate-based RCCP calculates and compares required capacity to available capacity for production lines rather than the individual resources assigned to operations on your routings. Required and available capacity are stated by production rate per week per line.

You can associate a production line with an individual item or a product family item, enabling you to perform rate-based RCCP on the item.

Required Rate Calculation

Rate-based RCCP uses bills of resources to determine rate-based capacity requirements.

The following table illustrates the repetitive resource requirements generated by the bill of resource load assuming B and C are defined as repetitive assemblies in Oracle Work in Process. Cumulative resource requirements are shown in bold.

Bill of Resources for A, B, and C
Item Line Setback Days Usage Qty Source Item
A 1 4 2 B
A 1 4 3 C
B 1 2 1 B
C 1 2 1 C

B and C are defined as repetitive assemblies and assigned to production lines in Oracle Work in Process.

Production Line Details for B and C
Item Line Line Priority Prod Rate Max Hourly Rate Line Hours/Day Line Days/Week
B 1 1 75 100 12 5
B 2 2 50 100 6 5
C 1 1 100 100 12 5

Line Priority

You can use line priorities to indicate your preferred production lines for building a repetitive assembly. Line priority is used by Oracle Master Scheduling/MRPs repetitive schedule allocation process to allocate aggregate repetitive schedules to individual lines. In this example, Line 1 is the preferred line for building item B.

Production Rate

Production rate represents the maximum hourly rate that you can build an assembly on a particular line. The production rate you specify for an assembly can never exceed the maximum hourly rate specified for the line in Oracle Work in Process.

Maximum Hourly Rate

Maximum hourly rate represents the maximum production rate for a production line across all assemblies.

Rate-based RCCP:

The following tables shows master schedule entries for A and illustrates how rate-based RCCP converts the entries into required rates and dates for B and C.

Master Schedule for A
Item Master Schedule Start Date Master Schedule End Date Master Schedule Quantity
A 07-FEB 07-FEB 100
A 10-FEB 10-FEB 100
A 15-FEB 15-FEB 100

Remember that setback days for B is 4 days, and that the usage quantity for B is 2. Setback days for C is 4 days, and the usage quantity is 3. 05-FEB and 06-FEB are non workdays.

Required Dates and Required Rates for B and C
Item Rate Start Date Rate End Date Daily Rate
B 01-Feb 01-Feb 200
C 01-Feb 01-Feb 300
B 04-Feb 04-Feb 200
C 04-Feb 04-Feb 300
B 09-Feb 09-Feb 200
C 09-Feb 09-Feb 300

The following table illustrates how the repetitive schedule allocation process would allocate the two repetitive schedules across Lines 1 and 2 using the line priorities and production rates specified earlier.

Repetitive Schedule Allocation
Item Line Required Date Max Hourly Rate Production Rate Load Factor Load Rate
B 1 200 100 75 1.33 267
C 1 300 100 100 1 300

Required Rate

Required rate represents the production rate allocated to an individual production line by the repetitive schedule allocation process. In this example, there is sufficient capacity to allocate the entire required rate for B to Line 1 since Line 1 has a production rate of 75/hour for B, and is available for 12 hours/day. Similarly, there is sufficient capacity to allocate the entire required rate for C to Line 2.

Load Factor

Rate-based RCCP uses load factors to aggregate required rates across a line since different items often require different production rates on the same line. Aggregating load rates rather than required rates ensures that line requirements generated by different items are aggregated on an equal basis. Rate-based RCCP calculates load factors using the following formula:

load factor = max hourly rate / production rate

In this example, the maximum hourly rate for Line 1 is 100/hour, and the production rate for item B on Line 1 is 75/hour. Rate-based RCCP would calculate the load factor for item B on Line 1 as 100/75 = 1.33.

Load Rate

Load rate represents the weighted required rate for a production line. Rate-based RCCP calculates load rates using the following formula:

load rate = required rate x load factor

In this example, the required rate for item B on Line 1 is 200/hour, and the load factor for item B on Line 1 is 1.3. Rate-based RCCP would calculate the load rate as 200 x 1.33 = 267 units per hour.

The previous table illustrates the required rate for each item/line combination for one day. Rate-based RCCP aggregates the load rates by line and stores them as a required rate for the line for each day within the period defined by the rate start and end dates.

The following table illustrates the required rates and dates for Line 1.

Required Dates and Required Rates for Line 1
Line Required Date Required Rate
1 01-Feb 567
1 04-Feb 567
1 09-Feb 567

The following table illustrates how rate-based RCCP uses required dates to bucket the required rates for Line 1 into weekly buckets. The example assumes that the first bucket starts on 31-JAN.

Bucketed Required Dates and Required Rates for Line 1
Week Start Date Line Required Rate
31-Jan 1 1134
07-Feb 1 567

Available Rate Calculation

Rate-based RCCP calculates the available rate for a production line using the line availability information you define in Oracle Work in Process and Oracle Bills of Material.

Rate-based RCCP calculates the available rate for a production line using the following formula:

available rate = max hourly rate x line hours

per day x line days per week

Line hours per day represents the start and stop times you specify for the line in the Production Line window in Oracle Work in Process. Line days per week reflect the number of workdays in the week based on the workday calendar you defined in Oracle Bills of Material.

The following table illustrates how rate-based RCCP would calculate the available rate for Line 1 assuming that you have defined the line to be available 12 hours per day, 5 days per week. In this example, rate-based RCCP would calculate the available rate for Line 1, for the week starting 31-JAN, as 100 x 12 x 5 = 6,000 units per week.

Available Rate for Line 1
Line Max Hourly Rate Line Hours/Day Line Days/Week Available Rate
1 100 12 5 6,000

Load Ratio Calculation

Rate-based RCCP calculates capacity load ratio for each line by dividing the total required rate per week by the total available rate per week, using the following formula:

capacity load ratio = required rate / available rate

The following table illustrates how rate-based RCCP would calculate capacity load ratio for Line 1 for the weeks starting 31-JAN and 07-FEB. In this example, the capacity load ratio of Line 1 for the week starting 31-JAN is 1134/6000 x 100% = 18.9%.

Capacity Load Ratio
Week Start Date Required Date Available Rate Capacity Load Ratio
31-Jan 1134 6000 18.9%
07-Feb 567 6000 9.4%

Notice that the rough cut analysis reveals that Line 1 is underloaded in both weeks. This information is illustrated in the following diagram.

Generating RCCP

You can generate your routing-based and rate-based RCCP plans on-line for any master schedule you choose. You can specify a bill of resources, a simulation set, and a resource group when generating your RCCP plan, and you can optionally choose to aggregate requirements for multi-department resources across all the departments that share them.

Viewing RCCP

You can display the rough-cut capacity requirements for a master schedule you specify to compare the capacity requirements to available capacity and review the weekly capacity load ratio. You can display capacity plans for individual resources, in hours per resource per week, or for production lines, by production rates per week per line.

Overview of Bills of Resources

The first step in calculating rough cut capacity requirements, for both routing-based and rate-based RCCP, is to create bills of resources. A bill of resources is a statement of all resource requirements necessary to build an item. A resource requirement can be for a department resource combination or it can be for a production line. In routing-based resources the requirements are based on the effective date ranges in routings. Resource requirements for phantom assemblies are included in the requirements for the planned orders of their parent assemblies.

You can automatically generate bills of resources by copying your current routing information when you load a bill of resources or create them manually. You can manually update a bill of resources that you have generated using the bill of resources load. You can choose to roll up the manual changes when loading or reloading a bill of resources.

When generating bills of resources automatically, the bill of resources load process explodes each item to the bottom of its bill of material structure. It then rolls up the resource requirements for each subassembly and component, level by level, and calculates cumulative resource requirements for the parent item.

Note: The bill of resources load only looks at current bills of material and routings, and ignores any engineering, bill, and routing changes scheduled to occur in the future.

When entering or updating single level bill of resource requirements, where the bill of resource item and the source item are the same, you can enter one repetitive resource requirement only. Since a repetitively manufactured item is built from start to finish on a single production line, it does not make sense to specify requirements for more than one line. By contrast, discretely manufactured items often require the use of multiple resources during their manufacturing process. Each resource requirement must be for a department resource combination or a production line, but not both.

When using the bill of resources load process, you can choose to generate bills of resources for all items or a range of items. You can load a bill of resources for an individual item or a product family item. When you load a bill of resources for a product family item, you can roll resource requirements from its member items. Later, you can use these resource requirements to analyze capacity requirements for each member item and for the product family item.

You can also specify a resource group to restrict the bill of resources load to key or critical resources.

Bill of Resources Example

The following examples illustrate how the bill of resources load process calculates single level resource requirements for two components, B and C, and rolls them up to their parent item, A, as cumulative resource requirements. The following table illustrates the bill of material for A.

Bill of Material for A
Level Item Quantity
1 A 1
.2 .B 2
.2 .C 3

The following table illustrates the corresponding routings and associated resource usages for items A, B, and C.

Routings for A, B, and C
Item Op Seq Dept Resource Basis UOM Usage Rate
A 10 D3 R1 Item HR 4
A 20 D3 R2 Item HR 4
B 10 D2 R1 Item HR 6
B 20 D2 R2 Item HR 6
C 10 D1 R1 Lot HR 8
C 20 D1 R2 Item HR 8

Usage Rate

Usage rate represents the amount of resource required to build one unit of an item at a particular operation. The usage rate is stated by the unit of measure you define in Oracle Bills of Material.

In the Bill of Resources Example, building one unit of C at operation 20 requires 8 hours of D1, R2.

Oracle Capacity only plans routing-based capacity for resources that have a unit of measure that is time-based and can be converted to hours.

Setback Days

The following diagram illustrates the routing information in the Bill of Resources Example, as well as setback days for each department resource combination. Setback days represents the number of days before the completion of an item that a particular resource requirement is needed. In this example, C's lead time is 2 days. D1, R2 is needed at the start of operation 20 on day 2. The setback days for the resource requirement for D1, R2 is therefore 1 day.

Setback days are calculated using the resource offset percent and item lead times calculated by the Oracle Work in Process scheduler during the Oracle Bills of Material lead time rollup process.

the picture is described in the document text

The following table illustrates the bills of resources that the bill of resources load would generate for A, B, and C based on the bill of material and routing information detailed in the previous tables. These are used by routing and rate-based RCCP to calculate resource requirements for master schedule entries.

Bills of Resources for A, B, and C
Item Op Seq Dept Res Set Back Days Reqd Hrs Usage Qty Basis Total Hrs Source Item
A 10 D3 R1 2 4 1 Item 4 A
A 20 D3 R2 1 4 1 Item 4 A
A 10 D2 R1 4 6 2 Item 12 B
A 20 D2 R2 3 6 2 Item 12 B
A 10 D1 R1 4 8 3 lot 8 C
A 20 D1 R2 3 8 3 Item 24 C
B 10 D2 R1 2 6 1 Item 6 B
B 20 D2 R2 1 6 1 Item 6 B
C 10 D1 R1 2 8 1 lot 8 C
C 20 D1 R2 1 8 1 Item 8 C

Required Hours

Required hours represents the number of resource hours required per resource unit to build one unit of an item at an operation. Required hours are derived from the usage rate and unit of measure you specify in Oracle Bills of Material. See: Resource Usage, Oracle Bills of Material User's Guide.

If you have defined a usage rate using a unit of measure other than hours, then the bill of resource load process converts it to an hourly rate. In the Bill of Resources Example, building one unit of C at operation 20 requires 8 hours per unit of D1, R2.

Basis

Basis is used to specify whether a resource is required on a per item or per lot basis. Basis has a direct impact on the total hours required of a resource at an operation.

Usage Quantity

Usage quantity represents the number of a given component required to build a bill of resource item, and is derived from the usage quantity on the item's bill of material. In the Bill of Resources Example, 3 units of C are required to build each unit of A.

Total Hours

Total hours represents the total number of resource hours required to build one unit of an item at an operation.

If the resource basis is Item, increasing the number of items to be processed at an operation increases total hours. For example, doubling the number of items that require grinding doubles the total hours required of a grinder. The relationship between total hours, required hours, and usage quantity for Item basis resources is represented by the following formula. In the Bill of Resources Example, all resources except D1, R1 are item basis resources.

total hours = required hours x quantity 

If the resource basis is Lot, increasing the number of items to be processed at an operation does not have an effect on total hours. For example, doubling the number of items that require drying does not double the total hours required of a drying room. The relationship between total hours and resource units for Lot basis resources is represented by the following formula. In the Bill of Resources Example, D1, R1 is a lot basis resource.

total hours = required hours 

Source Item

Source item is used to identify the component that generates an individual resource requirement. Source item facilitates resource requirement traceability when single level resource requirements are rolled up to become cumulative resource requirements for a parent item. For single level resource requirements, the bill of resources item and source item are the same. For cumulative resource requirements, they are not.

In the Setback Days table, notice how single level resource requirements for components B and C are rolled up to become cumulative resource requirements for A. Note how the setback days and total hours change for the cumulative requirements.

For example, 4 days are required to build A, based on item lead times of 2 days each for A, B, and C. D1, R2 is needed at the start of operation 20 on day 2. Setback days for D1, R2 becomes 3 days when the resource requirement for D1, R2 is offset from the completion date of A rather than the completion date of C.

Entering Items On a Bill of Resources

To enter items:

  1. Navigate to the Bill of Resource Items window.

  2. Enter the name of the Item for which you want to define a bill of resources.

  3. Save your work.

Creating a Bill of Resources

You define and update bills of resources to calculate rough-cut capacity plans for your master schedules without defining detailed bills or routings. You can also simulate different manufacturing methods as well as long-term plan resource requirements by defining multiple bills of resources for items. You can also use a bill of resource to simulate changes to existing routings and bills of material.

You can also update bills of resources that you automatically generated when you loaded the bill of resources.

Prerequisites

Before you create a bill of resources, you must define at least one:

To create a bill of resources

  1. 1. Navigate to the Bill of Resources window.

  2. Enter the bill of resource or bill of resource set Name.

  3. Enter a disable date that the bill of resources becomes Inactive On.

  4. Save your work.

Defining Bill of Resource Requirements

When entering or updating single level bill of resource requirements, where the bill of resource item and the source item are the same item, you can only enter one repetitive resource requirement.

Note: Repetitively manufactured items are built, from start to finish, on a single production line. You cannot define resource requirements for more than one production line.

For any resource requirement you can specify a department resource combination or a production line, but not a department resource combination and a production line.

Note: If you update a rolled up resource requirement (where the bill of resource item and the source item are not the same), the Origination of the resource requirement is not updated to Manual Addition. This ensures that if you perform subsequent bill of resource loads with the Maintain Manual Updates parameter set to Yes, Oracle Capacity does not generate duplicate resource requirements.

To enter or display main/current bill of resource requirements for a bill of resources

  1. Navigate to the Bill of Resource Requirements window.

  2. Choose Main to display main/current bill of resource requirements.

  3. Enter a Department within your organization that consists of one or more people, machines, or suppliers.

    You can only enter a department resource combination if you have not entered a line.

  4. Enter a time-based Resource assigned to this department. If you enter a Department, you must enter a resource in this field.

  5. Enter a production Line for the item.

    You can only enter a line if you have not entered a department resource combination.

  6. Enter the Source Item that generates the bill of resource requirement.

    If the bill of resource requirement is generated by a component of the bill of resource item, the source item identifies the component. If you specify a Line, you can only choose an item that has been assigned to the Line. This Line is the lead time line for the item.

  7. Enter the Setback Days for the bill of resource requirement.

    Oracle Capacity begins at the end of the assembly lead time and counts back to the date that the bill of resource requirement is required by the bill of resource item.

    For example, if 6 days are required to complete the bill of resource item and the bill of resource requirements is needed on the second day, Setback Days is 4 days.

  8. Enter the number of source item components required to manufacture one unit of the bill of resource item in Usage Quantity.

    This is the exploded quantity from the bill of resources item's bill of material.

  9. Enter the Origination of the resource entry:

    Manual addition: You have manually added this bill of resource requirement to your bill of resources. Manual update: You have manually updated this bill of resource requirement.

    Load: This bill of resource requirement is automatically calculated during the load bill of resource set process.

    Note: If you update a rolled up resource requirement (where the bill of resource item and the source item are not the same), the origination of the resource requirement is not updated to Manual addition. This ensures that if you perform subsequent bill of resource loads with the Maintain Manual Updates option set to Yes duplicate resource requirements are not generated. See: Loading a Bill of Resources

  10. Enter the Total Hours required for the resource to manufacture the bill of resource item.

  11. Save your work.

Loading a Bill of Resources

The load bills of resource process explodes all end assemblies to the bottom of the bill of material structure. It then rolls up the resource usage for each component and calculates the cumulative resource requirements for the bill of resource item.

You can load bills of resource for all items, a range of items, or models and options only. You can optionally choose a resource group when automatically generating your bills of resource, allowing you to calculate rough cut capacity plans for your key or critical resources only.

Note: You can automatically generate bills of resources by copying your current routing information when you load a bill of resources or create them manually.

To automatically load a bill of resources

Steps:

  1. Navigate to the Load Bill of Resource window.

  2. In the Parameters window, complete the following Steps 3-11.

  3. Enter the name of the Bill of Resource Set.

  4. Enter Yes in Maintain Manual Additions if you want Oracle Capacity to consider any manual additions you have made to the bills of resources.

  5. A manual addition is a new bill of resources requirement that you have added to your bill of resources.

  6. Enter Yes in Maintain Manual Updates if you want Oracle Capacity to consider any manual updates you made to your bills of resources.

  7. A manual update is an existing bill of resources requirement that you have manually updated.

  8. Select a Resource Group to calculate rough cut plans for a group of selected resources.

  9. Select a Rollup Items option:

    All items: Load bills of resources for all items. You must use this option the first time you load your bills of resources.

    Models and option classes only: Load bills of resources for models and option classes only.

  10. Enter Yes in Rollup MPS Items if you want to include multiple levels of MPS parts in your bills of resources. If you enter No, lower level MPS items are excluded when creating a bill of resource for a parent MPS item.

    Note: Oracle Capacity creates and maintains the parent MPS and component MPS bill of resources separately. If you enter Yes, all MPS items are included at multiple levels in the bill of material in one bill of resource for the parent item. A separate bill of resource is created for each additional MPS item. Use this option to calculate rough cut capacity requirements and avoid double counting requirements for an MPS.

  11. Enter a beginning item in a range of system items in Item From. Oracle Capacity loads bills of resource from this value to the To value.

  12. Enter an ending item in a range of system items in the To field. Oracle Capacity loads bills of resource from the Item From field to this value.

  13. Choose OK.

  14. Choose Submit in the Load Bill of Resource window.
