    Hi,

    As per my understanding, the system is behaving normally for Mat 3.

    50% of the safety stock can be available for planning, but still the safety stock is 100 pcs.

    Now, in your case the stock for Mat 3 should be 49 pcs (shortage - 51 pcs). No matter it is available for planning, but still system will try to maintain the safety, hence the system is proposing 51 pcs.

    For mat 2, shouldn't there be a proposal for 1 pc?

    Hope that helps.

    regards,

    Rohit.
