Setting the Optimal Safety Stock

Posted on: 1 November 2019

Safety stock provides a buffer to absorb fluctuations in supply and demand and is vital to providing the service your customers expect. But safety stock is also a cost driver for the business and, as a result, companies are left with a tricky balancing act. Get it wrong, and both customers and the business will suffer.

In this White Paper you will learn :

  1. how to find the perfect safety stock level
  2. how optimization technology can help you get the balance right
  3. how to accurately calculate “Total Inventory Cost” and “Shortage Cost” (the cost of losing a sale)
