Scheduling the planned and actual demand on resources can vary from one day to the next. And the availability of materials required on operations can cause scheduling estimates to generate unexpected results, causing jobs to be completed after their original Due Dates. Because of these issues, you must estimate the demand required each day or week to make sure that there is enough supply of time or other capacity to complete production quantities by the date on which they are due. Some jobs are also more important than others.
