Handling of Production Scrap and Waste:
Waste, the loss of the input products, is specified as a Scrap factor while the production process is initiated in Acumatica.

Acumatica’s Manufacturing Edition can handle such records with complete comfort and effortlessly.

Manufacturing industries are regularly challenged to keep up with the market by introducing new products, adapting to new methodologies, and stabilizing supply and demand in times of increased demand. With Acumatica, companies can easily control all of the issues mentioned above. Acumatica’s dashboards and reporting tools provide a clear view of the business processes, helping to make better and quicker decisions.
