Definition

Scheduled time span between sending a delivery from the ship-from location and the probable arrival in the location that receives the delivery.

Use

SAP Inventory Collaboration Hub (SAP ICH) uses the lead time as follows:

     For scheduling

If a document contains only the delivery date/time or only the shipping date/time, SAP ICH calculates the complementary date/time using scheduling.

     For alerts

As supplier, you cannot cover customer demands lying within the lead time in the usual way. SAP ICH generates an alert for the following situations, for example:

     If a scheduling agreement release contains uncovered schedule lines within the lead time (see Release Alert).

     If the projected stock within the lead time contains a critical value (see Inventory Alerts for SMI and Inventory Alerts for SNI).

As the lead time, SAP ICH uses the transportation duration of a means of transport that you have assigned to the transportation lane between the ship-from location and the receiving location. SAP ICH uses the following transportation lanes:

     If the customer and the goods recipient are the same, the delivery goes to the customer location. The transportation lane between the ship-from location and the customer location is relevant here.

     If the goods recipient is different from the customer, the delivery goes to the ship-to location. The transportation lane between the ship-from and ship-to locations is relevant here, if it exists. If this transportation lane does not exist, SAP ICH uses the transportation lane between the ship-from location and the customer location.

If you have assigned several means of transport to a transportation lane, SAP ICH uses the transportation duration of the slowest means of transport.
