How to Calculate EMS Supply Par Levels
Basic guidelines for setting min par and max par levels
The most effective way to maintain consistently optimal stock levels of EMS supplies is to use a par level range as your high (max stock) and low (reorder point) for each item. Setting par levels that accurately reflect usage and replenishment patterns will help you prevent both stockouts and overstocked shelves.
This brief paper runs through these two basic calculations. It also provides insights into each component of those equations as well as an illustration of how minimum par and maximum par levels are utilized to manage inventory. Use the How to Calculate EMS Supply Par Levels white paper as a guideline whether you’re defining them as a baseline for input into inventory software or you’re still relying on more manual methods of managing EMS supply inventory.
