- *Waste, scrap, and defective goods arising from manufacturing processes. Spoilage is not necessarily without value, as the waste, *by-products, or defective *output of a *production process can sometimes be sold for *scrap value or reworked. A certain amount of spoilage is viewed as inevitable in most manufacturing processes, and is referred to as *normal spoilage. Normal spoilage tends to be considered an element of regular *production costs. In contrast, wastage above anticipated or inherent levels is known as *abnormal spoilage, and is usually expensed as incurred.
