Abbreviated as CRP, capacity requirements planning, is an enterprise application that is used by an organization, usually in manufacturing, when developing a product plan to estimate capacity requirements.

The enterprise software can help an organization determine what is needed to meet the production plan, including labor, materials, systems — basically any resource required for production fulfillment. CRP can estimate, based on data input, what additional resources would be required to meet the production plan.
