, Tanya Panayotova, Neli Dobrinova Veleva

Abstract: In today's dynamic business environment, the success and competitiveness of any production organization is ensured by continuous improvement, sustainable development, effective planning and management. There is a growing scientific interest in the importance and relevance of production management in view of the strong need to redefine the policies and priorities within the respective strategic plan for business development - with increased focus on capacity planning in order for the industrial enterprises to adapt successfully to the dynamically changing conditions of the global environment and intense competition. Accordingly, full advantage is taken from the ample opportunities to study the impact of a number of factors on capacity planning and management. Based on an in-depth literature analysis, interviews and surveys, selected were 18 key factors that have a profound influence on the effective planning and capacity management of the production organization. Using the relationship between each of these factors and the capacity management is closely examined by applying the method of Interpretive Structural Modeling (ISM). Additionally, the interrelationships between the key factors under study are further analyzed by means of a Structural self-interaction matrix (SSIM).
