Rework / Reject (Scrap) categories allow you to capture different types of scrap on a production line when entering pitch details. If you don't have scrap categories set up, scrap will only be tracked in one bucket or group by default. Categories allow you to break out the Rework / Reject / Rerun into specific categories. This is particularly helpful when you have large amounts of scrap and you want to see the biggest scrap contributors in our Scrap Category Pareto Report.
- Go to the Production tab > Scrap Categories.
- Click 'Add New' located in the upper right on the grey toolbar.
- Enter a Code.
- Enter a Name.
- Ensure Active is checked
- Type: Reject: the part is thrown out. Rework: can put in additional work to the part. Rerun: run through the machine a second time; i.e. re-measuring a part. (no additional work done).
- Select the 'Lines' that the Scrap Category will be used on. You can select all.
- Select 'Save'.
Note: Make sure Scrap Categories are enabled for the lines you intend to use Scrap Categories on. To do so, you'll go into the Setup > Lines and check 'Enable Collection of Scrap Numbers by Category'. You'll also see you can add scrap categories to the line from the line setup menu as well.
