ERP Term
"Safety Stock "

Safety Stock defines a reserve of materials that are generally not needed but are held to cover unexpected circumstances.

Safety stock is a reserved amount of materials that are not typically needed but is held in case of unexpected circumstances. This allows organizations to maintain a certain level of product availability and avoid disruptions in the event of an unexpected increase in demand or decrease in supply.  

Organizations must carefully balance their safety stock levels to avoid stockouts and excessive inventory levels. Maintaining too little safety stock can result in lost sales and unhappy customers while carrying too much safety stock ties up capital and increases storage costs.

Organizations must consider factors such as lead time, demand variability, and supplier reliability to determine the optimal level of safety stock. An experienced inventory management team can help you strike the right balance for your business.
