Calculating True Yield
In the glass industry, it’s common to subtract the trim value from the overall square footage of a sheet of glass prior to calculating the overall yield. Some suppliers consider this “unavoidable waste” and therefore deduct it from their calculation. Doing so causes the yield to appear higher than it actually is.
At HP3, we understand the importance of your bottom line and the need for transparency in your data. In order to evaluate profitability, all data, regardless of whether it is considered "unavoidable" or not, needs to be considered. Our software uses the most basic calculation possible. We take the total square footage produced and divide that number by the total square footage consumed to give you an honest and True Yield.
Are your yields truly what’s being reported?
