Scrap rate

Scrap rate is the number of units produced that must be scrapped because of product defects or errors, divided by the total number of units produced by the manufacturing group over the same period, as a percentage.

Given the long production cycles in the aerospace industry, it is important to minimize the scrap rate to increase the efficiency of day-to-day operations and meet tight delivery schedules.
