    Nov 2018 Safety Stock in Planning Central and Supply Planning
    Managing safety stock whitepaper is updated for Release 18C

    Safety stock is inventory that is carried to prevent stock outs. Stock outs stem from factors, such as fluctuating customer demand, forecast inaccuracy, and variability in lead times for raw materials or manufacturing.

    Maintaining safety stock supplies enables you to hedge supplies to meet unexpected demands and improve customer satisfaction. Adequate safety stock levels enable your business operations to proceed according to plan.
