Supply Chain Inventory Planning

Solvanni Corporation
This Safety Stock Planning app uses industry standard formula for calculation of cost optimized service level percentages and corresponding safety stock quantities per month. The optimization considers product/location carrying cost and stock out cost, to propose the service level. This ensures that safety stock inventory is prioritized for the most important products and that excess safety stock is avoided, reducing unnecessary inventory costs. The safety stock calculations consider historical and/or forecast demand and/or leadtime variations over user selectable time periods and selection can be made between the different calculation methods to display charts on the dashboard.

Both safety stock quantities and carrying costs are computed. Specific service levels may also be imported per product/location and 'What If' cases investigated on the dashboard by entering override of service levels. Updated safety stock quantities and carrying costs are then immediately displayed.

Demand and Leadtime Variability Considered
  • Industry standard statistical formulae are used to calculate and present monthly safety stock quantities and carrying costs using demand data, leadtime data and both demand and leadtime data.
Cost Optimized, Imported or Direct Entry Service Level
  • Carrying cost and stock out cost values per product and location combination are used to calculate monthly cost optimized service levels which can then be used to calculate cost optimized safety stock quantities. Service levels can also be imported per product and location or directly entered on a dashboard.
Past, Future or Past and Future Demand and Leadtime
  • Calculations are done for each or these demand and leadtime sets to allow the safety stock quantity decision to take into account demand and leadtime trends.
Input Data Flexibility
  • Per product and location leadtime and cost data may be uploaded as monthly values if available and/or as static values for the product and location. The calculations will use the monthly data if it exists or as second choice the static values for the product and location. If neither exists a defined global value will be used. This enables different methods to be used for different products and location.
Calculate for any Period
  • Safety stock is calculated for a range of months not just the next month. It can be calculated for a past month and the data compared with the actual excess over forecast demand that was required in that month. This tests what the service level would have been if the app had been used at that time.
Fixed or Rolling Demand Windows
  • Choose to use demand and/or leadtime from a fixed period for the safety stock calculations for all months, or to use a rolling window of demand per month.
Dynamic Calculation
  • Select between service level sources and calculation methods on the safety stock dashboard allows immediate display of the corresponding safety stock quantities and associated carry costs.
New Product Introductions and End Of Life Products
  • Import product location specific production start and end dates to restrict demand and leadtime windows and safety stock calculation months for new or end of life products and locations.
