what is the diff. between assembly scrap and component scrap ?

Former Member

Dear Sunil,

Along with the inputs from our friend Senthilkumar,Component scrap can be

maintained at BOM item level also.

After assigning an item,item category type,quantity,just double click on the item

number say for Eg 0010.The system takes you to Item Data Basic screen,there

you can maintain component scrap.

The following is the help given by SAP.

<u><b>Component scrap in percent</b></u>

Percentage of scrap that occurs during production of the material if the material is a component.


Component scrap is used in material requirements planning (MRP) to determine the quantities of components required. When exploding the bill of material (BOM), the system increases the required quantities of the components by the calculated scrap quantity.


Required quantity 200 pieces

Component scrap 10%

Scrap quantity 20 pieces

Therefore, 220 pieces are required.

For examples of calculation in connection with the indicator for net scrap, see the documentation for this indicator.


If there is also assembly scrap for a higher-level assembly, the system adds together the two types of scrap.

If component scrap has been entered in the BOM, this value applies. Otherwise, the value specified in the material master record is used.

Apart from Assembly scrap & Component scrap,we can maintain operation scrap
