Safety Stock Methods SB, SZ and SM - When to apply what method?


Dear Experts,

i have searched the threads for a good explanation of safety stock methods (especially for safety stock methods SZ, SB and SM). I have to admit that i did not fully understand how the SM method works exactly. It would be great if you could possibly share an easy-to-understand example. Furthermore i am looking for a way to determine for what rawmaterial_location combination we need to use what Safety Stock Method (SB, SZ, SM). Maybe you could share a few examples in terms of raw materials, characteristics for these raw materials, what method to choose and reasoning for choosing this method.

Thank you very much for your support in advance!

I am looking forward to your answers!

Best regards,
