Long term capacity planning is a strategic decision for a company that must be carefully researched before implementation. The placement of equipment and its related work and maintenance access, material and work flows, plus potential expansion is critical because plant design and construction are normally tied to it. Clearly, this is an example of form following function.

This course identifies the fundamental considerations associated with capacity planning so a student can converse more knowledgeably with plant designers, industrial engineers, and representatives of operations, procurement, human resources, and safety.
