Missing stock

Topics: General: Missing stock

In my corporations I have missing stock. 120 months worth before the update and after the update it became 112,7. That is almost 8 months used in one month. My factories are producing around 127% and some of the products are actually showing 118,7 after the update.

Is it really that I miss some of my stock?

I think we are unclear on a few key items to assist you. From what I do understand, this seems an issue for the "Problems" forum.

1. Specifically, what is missing? coal, services, pants?

2. What problem is it causing? Is a corp not producing? What?

3. Where is this problem located? Corp? Country? World?

It looks like I cant fill my own corporations with 120 months of stock.

If I do that, after the update some of the products dissapear. And it goes in a random way. Sometimes it's coal, sometimes its services. Before the update all of my corporations had 120 months worth of stock in it, all categories. After the update some products in some corporations showed only 112 monts left. After one month of operating. While my corporation produce at a rate of 127%. Some products were showing the correct number and it should be 118,7 months left.

After restocking all of my corporations with 100 months the problem is solved I believe. Now all products are showing 98,7 months left. Which is the true usage of products. 100 months -1,27 (corps producing rate) =98,7

100 - 120 months doesn't matter I guess I stock my corporations with 100 months then.

I have noticed that more months stocked aka 120 the corporations burn through them much faster. Or at least it seems like 3 months per month

There is some math behind it. It has to do what has been touched on. Namely that when you buy stock, it assumes a 100% production level where 127% production and up is possible.

We're looking into what is causing this and once fixed will try to replenish what went missing.

I don't believe there is anything missing here Jonni. When purchasing stock, the corp purchases based on 100% production. So in a scenario where:

100% production = 100 services/month

120 months = 12,000 services

corp produces at 127% = 127 services/month

12,000 services - 127 services (1 month production at 127%) = 11,873 services

corp calculates 11,873 services= 118.7 months left

However, I would guess if more months are missing, the stock was purchased with less than 100% employment. I believe that the corp adjusts supply purchases based on the current employment level.

So, in the original post. If the corp has say 90% employment (due to a labor situation), the following would happen:

100% production at 90% employment = 90 services/month

120 months at 90% employment = 10800 services purchased

1 month production at 90% employment at 127% production level = 114.3 services used

10800 services - 114.3 = 10685.7 services left

If then, labor situation is resolved and 100% employment is achieved.

10685.7 = 106.85 months of stock

There you go. The longer explanation. This is why examples are needed. Which corp? etc. I would guess that the corp that went from 120 months stock to 112 in one month went from 95ish% employment when the stock was purchased to 100% employment the month after. If only I had the corp to look at..

On a completely different note. Stocking corps with large amounts of supplies is risky for this reason. If the corp is lost due to natural disaster/war/bankruptcy/whatever there is no compensation for the lost stock. It is gone. In short, I would not recommend such large stock levels. A proper buying strategy for supplies can be sufficient to avoid shortages and carries much less risk.

In the past, I have used max stocking of corps as a useful tool for certain strategies ;)
