    Hi,

    What does it mean by "5% attrition on all passive & small pack
    components"? I was looking at various PCB assembly websites, and I
    wasn't sure what it meant.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like if you supply them with 1000 parts, that they can only
    guarantee that 950 of them will get installed - up to 50 will just
    disappear somewhere, which is "attrition".

    Context ?

    It sounds like the assembler wants you to 'oversupply' piece parts. 5%
    is way too high.
