...or component factory.
this probably happens when you have multiple fabricators/factories on one conveyor

also sometimes some extra resources requested for crafting left unused on the end of the line

There's a couple things these could each be. Have you checked out my crafting guide (which has almost all known bug listed)?: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1191458767

e.g. needed resources being deposited in silos (or dithering in and out of them) can be cause by having 2 or more refineries on the same line, or multiple different routes resources could take (dependant on being raw/refined). This can also cause bypassing, potentially.

Refineries may also skip a beat (if not setup up very specifically) if they try to refine more than 5 chunks in a row. The classic crafting bug. Plus other more subtle issues in guide.
