I noticed there are some questions that are more specifically in the category of supply chain management floating around the site. Namely:

How to proceed with safety stock calculation when demand is constantly fluctuating?

What is the LME warehouse stocks level and is there any common behavior to correlate with price?

I just want to know what to know how to the community feels regarding this and whether or not we should have a policy for or against these types of question.

A little bit of an obscure post but I feel its worth mentioning.

The first question is "business economics", in that it is Inventory management at its most applied version. It is something that needs a specialized consultant, so I would say it is essentially off-topic, given what the OP asks, even tough the general subject "Inventory Fluctuations and Management" is certainly on-topic.

The 2nd question asks questions about a specific stock market (LME = London metal Exchange) so it could certainly be asked over at https://quant.stackexchange.com/

It too has a strong applied aspect, not so much about time-series econometrics but rather on the specifics on the specific market. So again, it looks essentially off-topic.

I would say neither of these are on-topic, at least I have never encountered anything like this during my economics education.

I could be wrong, perhaps it is a specific subject that is still known to a fair amount of economists.
