`SSL`

computes the safety stock level over lead-time for three
forecasting methods: Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE), Simple Moving
Average (SMA) and Exponential Smoothing (ES) when the demand follows
a stationary AR(1) stochastic process.

`method` |
character string specifing which forecasting method to use, |

`phi` |
a vector of autoregressive parameters, |

`L` |
a positive lead-time, |

`p` |
the order to be used in the SMA method, |

`alpha` |
smoothing factor to be used in the ES method (0 < alpha < 1), |

`SL` |
service level. |

`SSL`

is
calculated using an estimate of the standard deviation of forecasting
error for lead-time demand
*√{Var(D_t^L-\hat{D}_t^L)}* where
*\hat{D}_t^L* is an
estimate of the mean demand over L periods after period t.

The safety stock level over the lead-time.
