The task is :-
Produce a capacity and demand model, (with sensitivity analysis) for NI’s packing operation?
The task Guidelines
? Always save your work each time with a new version number in case you make an error
? Always back it up
Use the blank ‘Units for Packing’ worksheet in the ‘Forecast Sales by Product’
workbook to do all your calculations:
1. Calculate the forecast number of units per product for each week using the data from the Sales Units tab in the ‘Forecast Sales by Product’ workbook – don’t forget
that this can be done quite easily using cell referencing and formulae and by dragging formulae down columns and across rows.
2. Add all the Units together for each week and this will give you your total forecast demand for each week
You now have the demand – we now need to look at capacity side Using the ‘Packing Productivity’ data in the NI Labour Data workbook:
Calculate the average units packed per minute per person
Convert this average to the number of units packed per week per person – to do
this you will have to make some assumptions about the number of hours worked in a week.
3. Going back to your ‘Units for Packing’ worksheet you can now calculate the number of packers required each week using the total forecast demand for each week and
the av. weekly units packed per person per week
4. Can you display your findings graphically? (have a look at the graphs we produced for the call centre)
What are the implications of your findings?
Can you produce some costings for your capacity plan?
What assumptions have you made?
Write these up in the excel workbook , use a new tab to create new worksheet.
Here is a video explaining the process. ( Capacity )

Capacity issue :-
The sachet products are semi -packed automatically and hence will distort the demand figures.
Ignore those products, a quick way to do this is to first calculate unit demand, then filter by demand anything with a unit demand greater than 2000 units per week,
and then delete those. This will leave a sensible demand for normal packing capacity.
They are packed but it’s simpler and justifiable to focus on the normal sauces.
