    Can you please explain for me what are the differences between PPM scare% and scrape rate and how to calculate them and when i need to use each one !?

    PPM stands for parts per million. 1% for example is 100,000 defective per 1 million produced.

    PPM or % are equivalent. Maybe I’m missing something.

    thank you
    may i ask you how to calculate PPM for a machine
    i divide defect/yield *1000000
    or defect/(defect+yield) *1000000 !? ?

    a typical yield is defined as [1 – (defective/(total produced))]*100%

    therefore defective % is (# defective/total produced)*100 or alternatively (defective quantity/(defective quantity + good quantity)

    Careful about which yield you use…if the’re a rework loop you can get a mismeasure of good quantity. This is a first pass yield question.

    anyways–assuming NO rework–see the help above for defective%
