This paper proposes a robust method of capacity requirements planning (CRP) that can generate a stable load plan against dynamic changes in a manufacturing environment. In our study, robustness refers to the degree of stability in the load plan for the occurrence of unexpected events. The purpose of the proposed method is to determine the processing periods of operation orders with the aim of minimizing the probability that the resource requirement of each operation order will exceed the capacity of corresponding resources. Through numerical experiments, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed CRP method in terms of its robustness.
