  • Capacity Planning

  • Data center Data center infrastructure managementData center infrastructure management (DCIM) is the integration of information technology (IT) and facility management disciplines to centralize monitoring, management and intelligent capacity planning of a data center's critical systems. Achieved through the implementation of specialized software, hardware and sensors, DCIM enables common, real-time monitoring and management platform for all interdependent systems across IT and facility infrastructures.

  • Manufacturing resource planning Key functions and featuresCapacity planning or capacity requirements planning (CRP)

  • Manufacturing resource planning Industry specificsCapacity planning is the key to success in this as in many industries, and it is in those that MRP II is less appropriate.

  • Material requirements planning HistoryIn the 1980s, Joe Orlicky's MRP evolved into Oliver Wight's manufacturing resource planning (MRP II) which brings master scheduling, rough-cut capacity planning, capacity requirements planning, S&OP in 1983 and other concepts to classical MRP

  • Material requirements planning Problems with MRP systemsGenerally, MRP II refers to a system with integrated financials. An MRP II system can include finite / infinite capacity planning. But, to be considered a true MRP II system must also include financials.

  • VMware - AcquisitionsIn October 2005, VMware acquired Asset Optimization Group, specializing in capacity planning.

  • VMware - Other productsVMware Capacity Planner, an information technology (IT) capacity planning tool, collects utilization-data in heterogeneous computing environments and compares it to industry-standard reference-data to provide analysis and decision-support modeling.

  • Peter Chen - Computer performance modelingIn his early career, he was active in R&D activities in computer system performance. He was the program chair of an ACM SIGMETRICS conference. He developed a computer performance model for a major computer vendor. His innovative research results were adopted in commercial compter performance tuning and capacity planning tools.

  • Tata Consultancy Services - Products and servicesTCS and its 54 subsidiaries provide a range of information technology-related products and services including application development, business process outsourcing, capacity planning, consulting, enterprise software, hardware sizing, payment processing, software management and technology education services. Its established software products are TCS BaNCS and TCS MasterCraft.

  • Performance engineering - TransitionIdentify projected trends from monthly and quarterly reports, and on a quarterly basis, execute capacity planning management activities

  • Service catalog - Service catalogs for cloud computing servicesTo make selection easier and to speed service deployment, service definitions are often standardized in cloud service catalogs. This presents three benefits: improved capacity planning, particularly if standard components are used; quicken service provisioning; and better buying forecasts which helps to lower costs.

  • Project portfolio management - Evolution of PPMIn addition, as the size, scope, complexity, and geographical spread of organizations project portfolios continued to grow, greater visibility was needed of project work across the enterprise, allied to improved resource utilization and capacity planning.

  • Business transaction management - ApplicationsCapacity planning: Analysis of usage and performance trends in order to estimate future capacity requirements.

  • Microsoft Servers - Discontinued server products * System Center Capacity Planner Provides purchasing and best-practice capacity planning guidance

  • PostgreSQL - Add-ons* Postgres Enterprise Manager - a non-free tool consisting of a service, multiple agents, and a GUI which provides remote monitoring, management, reporting, capacity planning and tuning.

  • WiMAX-Advanced - Inherent limitationsHowever, with adequate capacity planning and the use of WiMAX's Quality of Service, a minimum guaranteed throughput for each subscriber can be put in place

  • Message queuing service - Goals* Unused capacity planning|capacity installed to meet peak demands

  • Long-tail traffic - Web site provisioning for long-tail traffic The ability to accurately forecast request patterns is an important requirement of capacity planning. A practical consequence of burstiness and heavy-tailed and correlated arrivals is difficulty in capacity planning.

  • Consolidation ratio'Consolidation ratio' is the number of virtual servers needed on each physical host. Many companies arrive at that figure through trial and error by stacking virtual machines on top of each other until performance slows to a crawl. Its sort of capacity planning by bloody nose, observes Bob Gill, Managing Director of server research for analyst firm TheInfoPro Inc. of New York.

  • Capacity Management - Network performance management tasks and classes of tools Network managers perform many tasks; these include performance measurement, forensic analysis, capacity planning, and load-testing or load generation. They also work closely with application developers and IT departments who rely on them to deliver underlying network services.

  • Capacity Management - Network performance management tasks and classes of tools *For capacity planning, modeling tools such as OPNET, PacketTrap, Zyrion Traverse, Riverbed Technology#Network monitoring and management| Riverbed Cascade, Plixer International#Items Services|Scrutinizer NetFlow and sFlow Analyzer, or NetQoS that project the impact of new applications or increased usage are invaluable.

  • Prescriptive analytics - Applications in healthcarePrescriptive analytics can also benefit healthcare providers in their capacity planning by using analytics to leverage operational and usage data combined with data of external factors such as economic data, population demographic trends and population health trends, to more accurately plan for future capital investments such as new facilities and equipment utilization as well as understand the trade-offs between adding additional beds and expanding an existing facility versus building a new one.

  • Operations management - ModelingAlso any serious discussion of capacity planning involves adjusting company outputs with market demands.https://store.
