# Production Plan spare capacity

#### PoohsMate

##### Board Regular
I've looked through the baord but none of the posts have the answer so can someone please see if they can help me.

We have 10 production machines (enclosing mail packs).

We have a list of regular jobs with an estimated time per job per machine.
We run 3 shifts over 24 Hrs (our day starts at 7am).

I am trying to show the sequence of jobs per day per machine with any spare capacity. At the moment I have only been able to put each job on a seperate line in a stacked horizontal chart

Can anyone help to show me how I can get all jobs on one line and show any spare capacity?

I could then get all 10 machines with their jobs on the same chart?
Our Production Planner and account managers could then see what free capacity there is available to book jobs into.

### Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
The following illustrates the type of production capacity report format I am trying to achieve with a chart.
(Based on an example from Mr Walenbachs site).
