    All scrap must be accounted for to keep your inventory straight. Develop a list of scrap/reject codes appropriate for your business (startup, defect A, defect B, etc). Make sure all scrap in written off using the most correct scrap/reject code and then have someone set up some reports and/or Pareto charts that will show your scrap costs for each part and reject code(by $$ and/or PPMs). Use this information to focus your scrap reduction efforts on the “big hitters”.
