Do you have a fixed number of components that you write off each time a feeder is loaded.

Sometimes when a customer has sent parts on reel without any leader, we will take out the first 5-8 parts and then tie off the cover tape with some leftover tape from the last run. We keep those parts we removed and then place them back in the feeders if we need them.

If the parts are in stick or a tray, they will not be removed or thrown away.

What I would like to do in the future is to start with a known count, then after the run take another count and update those part numbers in the erp system. From this I can find out what parts are being scrapped the most and then make process improvements based upon those numbers.

The machines will record vision/nozzle/feeder errors, but there are several false errors that can occur.
