Hi,

I'm glad there was an answer selected as correct. I'm unable to post the SAP safety stock formulas for three reasons:

1. The SCN blog posting service does not accept pdf files. I coud get around this but the next 2 reasons are critical.

2. The document I have did not go through the official SAP knowledge management process so can't be provided to customers as documentation.

3. Publication of the formulas would lead to endless questions from customers like "why is there a plus instead of a minus at this point in the formula?" and "my textbook shows XYZ. Why don't you change your formula to match?".

So, the SAP extended safety stock formulas are not universally accepted as correct. There seems to be much discussion in the field about what the correct formula is for each process method.

In every case, there are significant restrictions on using the extended formulas which are described in Note 617567 - Prerequisites for extended safety stock planning.

I suggest you try the SAP safety stock methods and then determine if they meet your business requirements.

Best Regards,

Mike
