    Waste: This is a loss connected with raw material or inputs to the production process
    Scrap: This is a loss connected with the output. Most of the time at the end of production
    Spoil: This is also a loss connected with the output. In the production process if the output is produced which is not up to the quality standard due to any problem and now the product cannot be brought back in a good state even after further processing
    Defect: This is another type of loss connected to the output but it can be in the input as well. This is close to waste but with the difference that it is such output which does not qualify all the quality standards due to some problem but that problem CAN be fixed by further processing or reprocessing
