By mistake this thread has been posted twice

Available capacity = Operating time x number of individual capacities

Say stat of day is 07:30:00

Finish 17:00:00

Length of breaks 01:00:00

Working hr = 8.5

That means Operating time = 8.5 * 90 % = 7.65 Hr

Available capacity = 7.65 * 14 = 107.1 hr =6,426.00 min .

Here my No. of indiv. cap.= 14 and Capacity utilization is 90 % .

Pooled cap :

An available capacity that can be used by several work centers.

An example of a pooled capacity is a group of setup personnel who perform setups for many work centers.

Hope this helps
