Scrap management is an important aspect of any manufacturing process, as it can significantly impact costs, inventory, and product quality. SAP, one of the leading enterprise software providers, offers various solutions for managing scrap, including assembly scrap, component scrap, and operation scrap. This paper provides a comprehensive review of these three types of scrap handling in SAP and analyzes their effects on manufacturing processes.
The paper begins by outlining the differences between assembly scrap, component scrap, and operation scrap in SAP. It then examines various strategies for handling these types of scrap, including manual data entry, automated data collection, and integration with inventory management and production planning. The paper also discusses the benefits and drawbacks of each strategy, such as increased data accuracy, reduced inventory costs, and improved production planning.
The paper draws on published research articles, case studies, and industry reports to analyse the effects of using these strategies. The analysis focuses on the impact of scrap handling on key performance indicators (KPIs) such as cost, quality, and inventory levels. The paper highlights how different strategies can impact these KPIs and identifies best practices for optimizing scrap management in SAP.
Overall, this review paper provides valuable insights into the various ways to handle scrap in SAP and the effects of using these strategies. By examining assembly scrap, component scrap, and operation scrap handling in detail, this paper serves as a useful resource for companies seeking to improve their scrap management capabilities in SAP.
