Conceptual documentation 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

      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.

       

      This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

      Note

      This table does not show the start date for the components, as there is insufficient data (on, for example, in-house production time, processing time, or interoperation time).
