Administration Lead Time

This document explains the settings for the administration lead time. This is the time allocated to perform activities required before a planned order can be released.

Outcome

The administration lead time is set.

The administration lead time is used to define the time that is allocated to perform activities required before a planned order can be released. This would be used, for example, in a quotation inquiry, where it is used as a lead-time component to calculate the total lead time per item/warehouse connection.

Administration lead time is specified per item/facility (M9LEA4/MITFAC).

Before you start

Basic data for inventory management must have been set.

Follow these steps

  1. Start 'Item. Connect Facility' (MMS003). On the E panel the 'Administration lead time' field is filled in for items with acquisition code 1=Manufacturing or 2= Purchasing (MMS002/E).

  2. Go to the (MMS003/F) panel. Fill in the 'Manufacturing order lead time method' field and the 'Dynamic lead time fence' fields.

    Dynamic lead time fence (MMS003/F)
  3. The administration lead time is displayed on the (MMS002/E) panel.

Parameters to set

Program ID/Panel Field This field indicates...
MMS003/E Administration lead time This is specified per item and facility and is added to the total lead time for each item/warehouse (MMS002)
MMS003/F Manufacturing order lead time method Controls whether the operation lead time should be calculated dynamically (according to the order quantity) or use the lead time offset (fixed lead time according to normal order quantity). Most often this parameter is activated.
MMS003/F Dynamic lead time fence This is for performance reason. This is the horizon for planned orders where dynamic lead time should be calculated, as above. Outside the dynamic lead time fence, fixed lead time according to normal order quantity will be used for planning
