We evaluate several features of capacity planning approaches used in practice and make concrete suggestions for practitioners. We run four experiments to determine the eeects of large vs. small time buckets, the cost implications of using heuristics, frequent vs. less frequent forecasting and planning, and joint optimization of tool and oor-shell expansions vs. sequential optimization. We use industrial demand and capacity data for realistic conclusions.
