Inventory Build-Up


Inventory build-up from M3 Supply Chain Planner is extra stock proposals due to capacity constraints. Inventory build-up is calculated during the supply chain optimization in M3 Supply Chain Planner and can be transferred to M3 BE.


The inventory build-up plan is useful when you need extra safety stock, for example due to seasonal variations in demand. For example, this is often the case in the food and beverage industry.

The inventory build-up plan proposes what items and quantity should be produced and when you must start building the extra safety stock to be able to meet future demand.
