Level of Buffering

The amount of excess production capacity in a production line or other manufacturing facility that is included to ensure that production goals are met in the event of downtime. Determining the proper level of buffering for a process is necessary to ensure both that required production capacity is maintained, and that excess buffering does not result in waste or overproduction.
