A comprehensive cost model has been developed to evaluate product dispositions in the substrate manufacturing line. The computer program allows manufacturing to make cost-related decisions for several processing alternatives: send-aheads, recycles, reworks, and scrap. The model ensures the lowest to-stock cost processing based on the following variables: unit hours, yields, product flow, materials, and operating expenses. The use of this strategy and methodology results in reduced product cost, shorter cycle times, highlighting of process problems, and increased CFM (continuous flow manufacturing) efficiency. This approach could be incorporated in an expert system for a business modeling procedure meeting internal manufacturing and customer requirements
