pcmrp Attrition was added In the latest version of pcMRP. You can see it on the inventory screen. There is the addition of the Attrition% and Setup Qty fields. This is used specifically for parts that are prone to loss at the time of consumption in the manufacturing process. This is a very significant addition. Users are excited as there have been manufacturing cost accountability questions for quite some time. Specifically, where they are using materials to setup their machines or work processes and burning off those materials without job accountability.
These fields interact with the BOM to more accurately provide information. The user has the ability to correctly withdraw materials from stock without increasing the number of stockroom transactions. They can more accurately identify the job cost to include these materials.
