We often get asked about the difference between these two numbers, capacity and items.
Let's start with full definitions:
- Capacity - the operational capacity of this Product Line. How many concurrent bookings are possible for any given date & time.
- Items - how many actual items are in this Product Line. (crucially including non-operational items)
(we start with Product Lines and add up the numbers when we show Product Family and Category numbers)
For example, take the example below, how can we have a capacity of 3 but 5 items?
The answer comes when you look at the items below a Product Line (PL)
Let's open it up and look inside:
As you'd expect, with a capacity of 3 it shows 3 operational bikes - 2 out, 1 ready.
To see the non-operational ones I have to click on the filters at the top to display non-operational Items;
Then I see my two additional bikes - two that have been sold
The product lifecycle - and how some Items can be non-operational
