StructureA large organization is poorly structured such that adding more staff only decreases revenue.
FacilitiesA restaurant is designed for a maximum of 120 seats. In order to achieve its design capacity it requires 12 staff and other inputs such as ample food.
ProductionThe batch production line of a bakery can produce 12,000 loaves of bread an hour on a fully staffed shift.
TransportA subway platform is designed for no more than 12,000 passengers.
EnergyA solar module is designed for 20.1% conversion efficiency under ideal conditions such as intense, direct sunlight when the panels are clean.
TechnologyA cloud platform is designed for scale such that it could support billions of concurrent users if it were allocated enough resources such as millions of computing units.bottlenecks such that it can't be efficiently scaled beyond serving 1,000 customers an hour.
InfrastructureA rain garden can filter up to 40,000 liters of stormwater an hour.
MachinesA robot can sort 10,300 recycling items an hour under ideal conditions such as a high density of objects the robot is able to recognize.
ComponentsA cloud platform designed to scale has a poorly designed component that fails with more than 2,000 concurrent users. The component represents a bottleneck that places a limit on the capacity of the software.
|Overview: Design Capacity
The maximum capacity of a design under ideal conditions such access to unlimited resources.
