Human Resource Management is often simply considered to provide the capacities derived from the production programme. For this purpose capacity requirements will be predicted in terms of required man hours or man months for different functions like welding, painting or assembly work. Based on a given product or production programme, the number of man hours required at a given time for welding, painting and assembly work are calculated.
