as stated earlier the back flush qty is the based upon the qty reported divided 
by the required quantity of the parent times the qty per unit of each component 
times the work order required qty. thus work order required qty 100, qty 
reported complete 75 and a component required qty of 2 will result in a back 
flush of (75 / 100) * (2 * 100) 150. now through in a component scrap factor 
of 3% and you get (75 / 100) * 2 * 100 * 1.03) 154.5 component parts back 
flushed. we found this when we started seeing component parts that had 
fractional transaction quantities and on-hand balances when their unit of 
measure is EACH. interesting how you explain this!

regarding Mac's question:
JIT600 backflushing is from FMA whose quantities needed are based on the
quantity ordered.  Suppose we produce a shop order in excess of the original
MRP ordered quantity, because a customer has requested more quantity but
production control has not maintained the shop orders to sustain the greater
quantity,will the raw inventory & sub-assemblies backflushed be in proportion 
to the
quantity reported as manufactured, or
will the backflushing stop at the amounts allocated by the FMA file?
ݹCS 405CD JIT reporting will take the Quantity reported
via JIT600, and backflush the Items on the FMA in the appropriate qty per.
IE Shop Order for 1000 pieces
   2 FMAs; 1 with Qty Req of 1000
           other  Qty Reqd of 500
   If you report 500 pcs, (1/2 the order)
      you will backflush 1/2 of each component
   If you report 1250 pieces (1.25 % of the order)
      you will backflush 1.25 of each component
The system does NOT stop backflushing when the FMA Qty Iss >Qty Req
