Safety Stock is extra inventory, built up in days, that is maintained to avoid a stock out.
Where can you find this:
- Product Details screen
- Product History screen
Note: If set up as a Daily Replenishment product the Safety Stock options will not be shown. The K3S system handles that area differently.
Safety Stock is system generated based on the level of deviation for the specific product. For example, if a product has a high deviation, meaning it is not very predictable, Safety Stock would be added for that product. As the product becomes more stable and the deviation drops, we will lower the Safety Stock.
If you click on the Safety Stock Analyzer, you will see the twelve different calculations, in four different categories, for a product’s Safety Stock. This allows you to see why the Safety Stock is at its current level.
