Safety stock planning in APO


Hello SAP APO gurus:

I just have a general question. Is it common to have APO plan safety stock at finished good and raw material level, rather than just CIF the safety stock values over from ECC? Does anyone know if there is a pros / cons documentation that explains why someone should use APO for safety stock planning vs ECC? (For instance, the safety stock value in ECC material master says to always keep 50 pieces in safety stock. APO might suggest a different value to keep in safety stock based on some parameters (usage, etc)).

Also, what is the difference between standard safety stock planning and advanced safety stock planning in APO?

Thanks in advance.
