Safety stock settings are being ignored in multiple instances.
1. The Purchase Request for more finished goods is not being generated until the stock level is forecasted to hit zero. This creates an obvious gap in planning and does allow for finished goods to be scheduled correctly.
Safety Stock 100 and Safety Stock Method SB has been maintained.
2. Safety stock value is being ignored when procuring raw material at a location. The stock is perpetually maintained too high.
Safety Stock 30,000 and Safety Stock Method SB has been maintained.
