Hello Community,
I have a requirement where one of our prospects have iron bars as their raw materials.

They have a scenario where if they are using 10 bars all of 6m in lengths. Now some of these 6m bars might have scratches etc and they would like to record it as a part of scrap. Hence, for these 10 units of bars they would like to record a scrap of around 10%. How can we record such a scenario in Acumatica in BOM.
Also would like to know if I would be creating a BOM → Product Configurator, would Production part be required to be covered in such a scenario?

Thanks in advance.

Did you notice this previous post answered by DGodsill97, where scrap is recorded as byproduct (waste) with a negative line on BOM?

Here is a second suggestion by Cwise52 where damaged items are returned to stock and written off via negative quantity adjustment.

I hope one of these ideas works for your situation.
