Yield Factor

The yield factor is typically used in process industries such as pharmaceuticals, distilled spirits, and processed foods, among others. It considers normal evaporation losses, residuals, and other losses that occur during the production process. The yield factor is used to determine the expected output of a process. The scrap factor is generally used in discrete manufacturing processes, such as final assembly and packaging, and considers the materials that will be damaged or lost as a normal part of the process. It is used to adjust the quantities in the bill of materials to compensate for losses incurred during the production process. Yield in culinary terms refers to how much you will have of a finished or processed product. Professional recipes should always state a yield; for example, a tomato soup recipe may yield 15 L, and a muffin recipe may yield 24 muffins. Yield can also refer to the amount of usable product after it has been processed (peeled, cooked, butchered, etc.)For example, you may be preparing a recipe for carrot soup. The recipe requires 1 kg of carrots, which you purchase. However, once you have peeled them and removed the tops and tips, you may only have 800 grams of carrots left to use.
