Use Case Safety stocks


The completion of products takes time, for example for material procurement and production. But even with short-term orders, you want to be able to deliver as completely and promptly as possible. What is a suitable safety stock for an individual item in order to avoid unnecessary storage costs while at the same time being able to deliver within a certain replenishment time?


Various safety stock calculation formulas are evaluated for the available data, products and materials and the corresponding service levels are determined. Precise forecasts form the basis for an efficient safety stock determination. The determined safety stock values are transferred to the company’s ERP system and used for further procurement and production planning.


  • Minimize storage costs
  • Ensure ability to deliver
  • Economical use of resources
