Displaying the specific sources of capacity requirements. This is analogous to pegging in MRP, which displays the source of material -requirements.
The process of determining the amount of capacity required to produce in the future. This process may be performed at an aggregate or product-line level (resource requirements planning), at the master-scheduling level (rough-cut capacity planning), and at the material requirements planning level (capacity requirements planning).
