Definitions for "shrinkage"
Inventory recorded on a companys books but not on hand, due to theft, loss or accounting error.
The decrease in inventory quantities over time from loss or theft.
Loss of goods through shoplifting and other types of stealing.
The amount of such contraction; the bulk or dimension lost by shrinking, as of grain, castings, etc.
Decrease in value; depreciation.
1) Liquid, contraction in volume as metal cools to solidification, 2) solidification, contraction in volume when the metal passes from the liquid to the sold at the freezing point (may expend over a range), 3) solid, the contraction on cooling from freezing point to normal temperature, 4) the decrease in dimension in clays occurring when drying at 100°C (212°F) and even more so on firing, 5) reduction in dimension of refractory material during heating.
process or result of becoming less or smaller; "the material lost 2 inches per yard in shrinkage"
The amount of gas used by a pipeline and the lost and unaccounted for supply, both of which are a function of moving gas for a shipper.
Gas that is input to the system but is not delivered to consumers or injected into storage. It is either Own Use Gas or Unaccounted for Gas.
Square footage that disappears between the pro forma and the rent roll due to lease negotiations, the dynamics of leasing or inadequacies in the method of accounting for square footage.
The tendency of the cement paste in concrete to shrink as it cures, causing concrete slabs to either curl (due to unrestrained shrinkage) or crack (due to restrained shrinkage)

The act of shrinking; a contraction into less bulk or measurement.
Refers to the dimensional stability of a thread when it is subjected to boiling water or heat. ASTM Test Method D204 describes the standard test procedures for sewing thread using either the boiling water (BW) or dry heat (DH) method. Dry heat shrinkage at 350°F is more severe than boiling water shrinkage. During this test, the thread is subjected to 350°F for 30 minutes with a weight attached equal to one gram per Tex Size.
The contraction of a fiber, yarn or fabric after washing and drying. All products made of natural fibers have a tendency to shrink 4%-8%.
In statistics, shrinkage is a general technique to improve an estimator, and to regularize ill-posed inference problems. Shrinkage is implicit in Bayesian inference and penalized likelihood inference, and explicit in James-Stein-type inference. In contrast, maximum-likelihood and least-squares estimation procedures do NOT include shrinkage effects.
The property of the mortar in Portland Cement Concrete that undergoes shrinkage as it dries as a result of hydration and evaporation.
Tightening or shrinking of paint film as solvent evaporates.
The shrinking of automotive paint as it dries.
An allocation of time from rosters that accounts for unscheduled breaks, i.e. unplanned leave
The dimensional change undergone by a pattern after demolding. Varies with material, pattern design, density and percent blowing agent.
a roof having only one sloping plane and no hips, ridges or valleys.
The disruption of the level plane of a finished surface with age, whereby the thickness of film appears to diminish or the luster dies away. This condition can be caused by repeated slight movements of the wood or of underneath coats of material.
The condition that a man's genitals suffer after he has been in water ("The Hamptons")
The degree to which a polymer constricts when exposed to heat.
The process of shrinking; depreciation in size.
stated value straight line depreciation
A general term used for the variety of reasons for actual stock being less than book stock. There are two types, 'known' shrinkage, where the cause is identified and recorded, and 'unknown', where the cause is not recorded and cannot be specifically determined.
The difference between the training set accuracy of a network and its accuracy on a test set.
