Scrap Percentage is a key production measurable. Reporting and the monitoring of Scrap percentage can be a quick visual indicator of how well a process is running and performing.
The Scrap % calculation can be observed from the Operator Portal or Production Pitch Board. Detailed scrap reports including scrap categories, trends, and percentages are also available through the reports module.
Scrap % can also be viewed by "Current Shift" and/or "Week to Date" from the Operator Portal.
The Scrap % calculation is a percentage of Scrap compared to ALL Parts/Products produced. Scrap % is determined by Scrap / (Actual + Scrap).
Scrap % thresholds can be updated at any time if Accept / Reject criteria are modified.
From the SETUP menu, the Scrap accept/reject threshold percentages can be adjusted per Area and Line in their respective detail pages. Adjusting the Upper or Lower % on the slider bar will have a direct impact on the Scrap % displayed on the Operator Portal and Production Pitch Board Displays. These Upper and Lower thresholds determine if the production measurable of Scrap % is Green, Yellow, or Red Status.
Scrap Pareto charts are available through the reports module and/or from Production Pitch Board Views.
