Manufacturing operations with poor scheduling plans are headed for trouble. Load capacity analysis is a technique for measuring the feasibility and desirability of proposed scheduling plans. Simply stated mathematically, load capacity analysis consists of a series of multiplications and additions, However, the numerous computations in a typical problem usually take more time than can be allowed. The paper describes an special purpose analog computer specifically designed to solve this problem in a matter of minutes.
