MRP 2 view - service level field

Hello colleagues.

Can anybody explain me what's the usage of the field "service level (%)" in the MRP 2 view of the material master ?

The SAP help does not help that much ...

Regards,

Fernando

    Service level is used by the system to compute the safety stock when such a MRP type is used.

    Hi Fernando - Service level is the desired probability that a chosen level of safety stock will not lead to a stockout. Naturally, when the desired service level is increased, the required safety stock increases as well.

    Service level is used to calculate the safety stock quantities when you use 'Dynamic safety stock Qty'. Higher the service level greater the qty in safety stock.

    Service level is maintained in percentage (%). The lower the service level, the lower the requirement for safety stock.

    Hope this info helps.

    Hi,

    Service level % is used to calculate safety stock. The higher the service level, the higher will be the safety stock calculated by the system to compensate for additional consumption or delays in delivery.

    Hope it clear your doubt.
