One of the characteristics of small-sized metal manufacturing companies in Indonesia is that they tend to accept all orders without considering available production capacity. This research aims to propose an order acceptance and scheduling model based on available production capacity that can be used to improve the capacity planning of such companies. A suitable capacity planning model is chosen (Chen et al. 2009) and then used with real data gathered from Company K, a small-sized metal manufacturing company in Bandung, Indonesia. It can be shown that the solution from the model will increase profit as much as 2.52%. The increase results from a change in order acceptance as the model correctly identifies one of the historically received order will not generate any profit.
