Sightline EDM®: Capacity Planning for Increased Efficiency

What is capacity planning? Capacity planning is an analysis of operational data that allows businesses to forecast resources and ensure that customer needs can be met. Automating your capacity planning can eliminate the expense and tedious, time-intensive manual process that often goes into capacity management.

Sightline EDM® uses machine learning capacity planning to streamline the data collection process and conduct analysis in real-time. Our reports provide critical insights that allow you to understand current capacity, anticipate trends, and allocate your resources appropriately. We understand the importance of capacity planning and we want to help you streamline the process.

Predict Infrastructure Requirements Weeks, Months, Years in Advance

Sightline’s capacity planning software can predict infrastructure requirements and resource utilization across facilities weeks, months, or even years ahead. You’ll know exactly when and where your resource capacity will run out, allowing for more effective resource capacity planning.

Our industry-agnostic software can help your business to accurately forecast future system requirements and potential issues well in advance. You can establish a baseline for operations and production, plan and allocate resources, and automate forecasting all with one easy-to-use tool. With Sightline EDM®, you can maximize your efficiency and lower operations costs while ensuring that you are always able to meet customer demand.

Sightline’s revolutionary software collects metrics from sensors and other systems within your facilities like labor availability, IT capabilities, equipment capacity, repairs, supplies, logistics, and storage as well as capacity threshold limits across systems and facilities. Use this data to quickly customize and automate production forecasting reports or alerts so your teams know what is needed and when.
Sightline EDM® software continuously collects real-time data and visualizes historic trends. Through AI, machine learning, and big data analytics, EDM® gives you the insights you need to maintain or expand production levels at all times, and withstand potential spokes in demand, usage, or capacity.
Improper resource utilization can impact day-to-day operations, lower performance, and deplete budgets. Predictive forecasting with Sightline’s proprietary technology, ForSight®, prevents the high-cost bottlenecks, production halts, and capacity waste that improper or incorrect planning can cause.
