Safety Stock Calculator

Safety stock inventory, sometimes called buffer stock, is the level of extra stock that is maintained to mitigate risk of run-out for raw materials or finished goods due to uncertainties in supply or demand.

Reasons why you should carry safety stock:

1. Protect against unforseen variation in supply

2. Compensate for forecast inaccuracies.

3. Prevent disruptions in manufacturing or deliveries

4. Avoid stock outs to keep customer service and satisfaction levels high.

Use this simple calculator on the left to discover how much safety stock you should be carrying.

Calculate your Overall equipment effectiveness, also known as OEE

Swift Metal's OEE calculator helps you estimate your Overall Equipment Effectiveness and calculate OEE components.​

OEE takes into account all losses, resulting in a measure of truly productive manufacturing time.

OEE scores provide a very valuable insight – an accurate picture of how effectively your manufacturing process is running. And, it makes it easy to track improvements in that process over time.

OEE is calculated by multiplying the three OEE factors: Availability, Performance, and Quality.

The information which you calculate from the OEE Calculator is intended for use by you as a guide only, and has no legal effects.

The reason I work with Swift is that I will always get a competitive price, high quality products and excellent service.

Another advantage is that Swift understands our business and what we are trying to achieve. They have been working cooperatively with us to attain our goals, and have maintained an exceptional level of communication along the way.
