Safety stock levels are also down by 34% in both cases. 2. Classification of items based on ABC inventory All items, today, are being stocked as per the safety stock levels and are being given the equal importance. This is not reflected in the sales/demand of these products – a few are high volume products and a few are quite low volume. Given this disparity in the items being produced, it is only imperative that the ABC system is brought into implementation. As a continuation to this, the LIFR can be reduced for low volume items and a focused approach can be deployed for high volume items to ensure their availability. Grouping has been made based on demand. Group A has demand greater than 60%, Group B has demand greater than 20% and rest fall under group C. The Service level for Group A, B and C is taken as 98%, 93% and 90% respectively. The varying service levels are used to reduce the safety stock and thereby reduce the holding costs. By introducing this there is a significant drop in safety stock levels (by 13%) and hence a cost reduction to the tune of $0.5 million
