Capacity planning defines the most amount of work that a team can handle in a given period. For example, in product development, we use capacity planning to determine the ideal number of products created within a specific timeframe, considering the team's available resources. This process begins with assessing the team's current capacity, which includes factors such as the number of team members, their skills and experience, and the amount of time they can dedicate to the project. Once we have assessed the current capacity, we project future needs. Finally, a plan is put in place to ensure that the team meets these demands; this may involve hiring extra staff, investing in new technology, or changing how work is assigned completed. Capacity planning is an essential part of any product development project. It ensures that we use resources efficiently and that deadlines are realistic.
