I am looking for a benchmark on industry standard scrap/rejects as a percent of sales. does anyone know of a report or have an idea of what the standard is?

Christopher, MAPP has information on PPMs as reported by the customer which is documented by size processor sales size.

I will have the report emailed to you.

I know that Plante & Moran was going to do a survey focused on scrap as there is a wide variety of procedures that processors us to measure and track this percentage.  I will reach out to Jeff Mengel to see if a study has been done.

Thanks!

Plante & Moran are going to execute a scrap study, and we told their team that we would like to work on promoting it so that we have ample data.

Please stand-by.
