 Entering a Lead-Time Offset

Application

This field shows the number of working days before or after the production start date of the superior material when the component must be available.

Integration

The lead-time offset is ignored in lead-time scheduling for task lists.

Functions

You can enter a negative value or a positive value.

  • Positive value

The component is not required immediately. It can be available this number of days after the start of production.

  • Negative value

The component is required this number of days before the start of production.

Example Example

The following graphic shows how the order finish date of a component relates to the order start date of the superior assembly.

Different lead-time offsets are entered for three different components.

End of the example.
