Waste arising in production processes can have a significant effect on profitability. This report compares expected production quantities of finished products with actual production quantities, showing wastage of finished products 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. This report does not show wastage of components.
