Dynamic Safety Stock Management

Stock room by Venkata Ramana Nethi, CSCP, CPIM, Business Process Lead - Operations

An organization’s strategic inventory policy and stocking strategies drive aggregate level inventory management (i.e., ABC/XYZ/LMN, etc. classification) which in turn drives item level inventory management. One of the most effective ways to perform item level inventory management on high volume and low complexity products is by using Dynamic Safety Stock coverage profiles on SAP material masters.

Inventory specialists and planners are responsible for interpreting key fields related to coverage profile configurations and screens within the Dynamic Safety Stock solution, however most planners find it challenging to interpret Stock Requirements List (MD04) screen results.
