Production operators can enter scrap quantity in different ways, depending on the details of the production process. It is also possible to set up an automatic scrap registration system if for example defect products run on a separate conveyor (contact Evocon support to get more information on how to set this up in your production process).
Entering scrap for all production shifts and products is important to ensure that OEE value is correct and to see how quality readings change over time.
If the production process is such that it is important to know exactly at what time scrap occurred, the operators can choose specific production signals to mark them as scrap.
Click on the production signal that should be marked as scrap.
You can use the arrows in the popover to move left and right to choose the specific signal and you can also use the arrows on your keyboard for that (left-right and up-down to change the row).
To select multiple signals, use the brackets icon and drag the brackets to include all the signals you want to mark as scrap:
Choose “Add scrap” in the popover, this opens the scrap details modal:
The quantity is automatically filled with the selected signal(s) quantity, but this can be edited by the operator. If just one signal is selected, the scrap amount is restricted to that quantity.
Scrap group and reason can be selected from the drop-down. Learn more about adding and managing scrap reasons here.
If required, extra note can be added
Click “Save” to confirm.
To edit or remove scrap information, open the Scrap modal from the bottom menu bar. Scrap is displayed by product and by using the arrow icon, you can see the details (different reasons for different amounts, etc) for that product's scrap.
Use the "Edit" and "Delete" buttons in the overview modal. Scrap can also be removed by setting the quantity to zero.
Note: You can also use the hotkeys to make routine processes in Evocon quicker.
If the production process is such that the exact time of scrap is not relevant, then it is easier for the operators to use the "Scrap" modal.
Click on the "Scrap" modal in the bottom menu.
Click on "+ scrap" button
Select the product that should be marked as scrap from the product field dropdown.
Enter scrap quantity.
