Symptoms

Dynamic Safety Stock calculated by the plan is incorrect.

For example: for an Item with average monthly demand is around 20,000 to 25,000 and with a safety stock set at 92 bucket days(4 months) and 4600%, you would expect safety stock about 2 months of demand around 40,000 to 50,000, but the safety stock of 66,000 to 76,000 in few months/buckets was not expected.
