Hi Vic,

I had the same thing in my wood department - we always had to toss the 1st
part. I couldn't find an acceptable way to handle it at the time (this started
in the DB days), so I just programagically did it as a part of order release (I
had created a user exit in the middle of the order release process) - you could
also add it to the shop packet print process. Easy to do, if the value is
already a 1 for that work center, skip the record, otherwise Z-ADD a 1 into it.
VERY minor change in a almost totally static program. I don't like modifying
code (you know that), but if you have to, a program that hasn't changed in a
long time is the safest place to do it.

Subject: Re: [MAPICS-L] Planning for scrap due to machine setup

Certain work centers always create scrap during setup of the machining
operation. Expected scrap quantity will be "1" regardless of operation quantity.
Is there a way to have MRP and order release automatically adjust component qtys
to allow for this? Both the Qty per in the product structure and the Yield in
the routing operation are ratio based, so they are not a good fit because we do
not have standard run qtys. From one mfg order to the next there could be a big
difference in qty, so (for instance) using .9 in the Yield would work OK for a
small qty but would greatly exaggerate scrap for a large M.O. Has anyone
developed a solution for this?
Thanks,
Vic
