It is important not to immobilize too much value in stock: this is one of the main axes to improve its profitability.
Scheduling production based on recipe inventory levels is a relatively common method, which drastically reduces losses by producing only the top-up necessary for the proper functioning of the establishment.
To plan its production from its stock level, a recipe must at least have in its stock information, the indication of the minimum quantity and/or the target quantity that it must necessarily present to ensure sales, and to avoid product breakage.
