Reducing sheet metal yield losses in automotive manufacturing would reduce material demand, providing both environmental and financial benefits. Current literature is unclear on how yield losses can be reduced since there is limited knowledge of how much scrap is generated, the cost of scrap and why yield losses occur. This talk will present results from the industry, vehicle and business process investigations which are analysed to propose and evaluate nine strategies for sheet metal scrap reduction .
