The inventory a company holds beyond normal needs as a buffer against delays in receipt of orders or changes in customer buying patterns.
The stock held to protect against the differences between forecast and actual consumption, and between expected and actual delivery times of procurement orders, to protect against stockouts during the replenishment cycle. In calculating safety stock, account is taken of such factors as service level, expected fluctuations of demand and likely variations in lead time.
The amount of stock (number of months' supply) below the minimum level which serves as a cushion or buffer against major fluctuations in contraceptive demands or unexpected shipment delays.
Minimum stock of items used for repairs and spares, but not to be used for primary manufacturing of the product.
Quantity of an inventory item carried in stores or stock as a hedge against stockout resulting from above-average or unexpected demand during procurement lead-time. Also known as minimum or protective inventory, buffer inventory, cushion, or reserve.
An inventory quantity planned to be on-hand at all times to provide a hedge against future uncertainty. Planning systems generate planned orders based on the quantity and timing needed to maintain the specified safety stock.
A back-stock of products kept to replenish shelves.
(margin of safety) The amount of additional inventory required to prevent out of stocks in the event of changes in sales or delivery days.
This segment of inventory exists as a buffer to surges to variation in demand, avoiding the negative impacts of stockout situation on subsequent demand. Segmentation (demand) This refers to the categorization of different types of demand, which make sense in the decision-making or planning process. These segments have sufficient properties in common, that they can be treated similarly when investigating business developments or capacity management.
