An Evaluation of Actual Costs of Rework and Scrap in Manufacturing Industry

  title={An Evaluation of Actual Costs of Rework and Scrap in Manufacturing Industry},
  author={Ezeanyim Okechukwu and O Onwurah Uchendu and Okoli Ndubuisi},
In manufacturing sector, rework and scrap can result from errors, omissions, failures, damages, change orders, machine breakdown, poor maintenance practices, unmotivated employees, poor quality management, poor design of products and services; and the costs involved in rework process or scrapping of defective products can be overwhelming. This study evaluates in totality the actual costs of rework and scrap in the industry under study using cost volume analysis. The cost benefit of rework over…
