I'm looking for input on the Value of Rejects report in IQMS under the production reporting module. I'd like to get a feel for where other companies are running as a % of sales.  Do you feel this is acceptable or need improvement?

Jamie, next Thursday, April 13th, we will have an open IQMS Peer-to-Peer Engagement on the phone focused on Production Monitoring.  I am certain somebody will be able to help you.

We use the Standard cost of parts produced internally as scrap value. They are dis-positioned against the work order. Also, we have a 3% "scrap factor" in the BOM. purges, START UP SHOTS , ETC.

In the BOM doesn't the scrap factor just add 3% to the material needed? I don't believe it takes into consideration the std. cost. Are you able to achieve a 3% scrap rate?

Correct. Yes. STD cost is for parts produced, placed in MRB and scrapped.

Thanks, I'm really looking for benchmarking on what a good vor % would be.
