Managing scrap, yield and other factors

Process manufacturing enterprises are prone to planned and unplanned production variations, due to the characteristics of the materials being used and produced, the quality or grade of materials as well as the effects of the production process such as machine setup.

To help in such environments to ensure enough:-

  • Material is purchased, picked and issued to the production order or back flushed
  • Required planned quantity is produced
  • The appropriate time and consumption of production resource capacity is planned for
  • Product costs are calculated correctly

ProcessForce manages this variability which affects material, time and cost via a number of specific functional fields:-

  • Scrap – defined at item recipe/formulation level
  • Yield – defined at a parent recipe/formulation level
  • Factor – ¬†defined at an item recipe/formulation level
