Ensuring you have enough stock for every eventuality can mean storing large amounts of stock requiring expensive warehouse space and the associated overheads.
What if production changes?
You may be stuck with stock you cannot use, or on the other hand, a sudden increase in demand could leave you struggling to keep up. That money invested in stock and the space to store it would be better invested in other parts of the business. You may even find that a lack of warehouse space for stock will start to limit your expansion plans.
