Waste arising in production processes can have a significant effect on profitability. This report compares expected production quantities of finished products and components with actual production quantities, showing wastage of finished products and components as an amount and as a percentage of the total.

This report measures wastage of finished products defined in a Production BOM. Intermediate products (inputs/outputs) do not appear in this report.
