Safety Stock - What is a good safety stock level?
The higher the desired service level, the more safety stock is required. The retail industry aims to maintain a typical service level of between 90% and 95%, although this does depend on the product being sold. As mentioned before, a higher service level is a risk as it increases the amount of stock being held.
