Supply Lead Time

This document explains the settings for supply lead-time. The management of the supply lead time depends on the acquisition code in (MMS002/E).

If the acquisition code is 1 = Manufactured item, the supply lead time is calculated by the system according to the product structure and the capacity in the work centers.

If the acquisition code is 2 = Purchased item, the supply lead time can be updated manually in (MMS002/E) or for the main supplier in (PPS040/E).

If the acquisition code is 3 = Distribution from another warehouse, the supply lead time is updated manually in (MMS002/E).

Outcome

The supply lead time is set.

Supply lead time is specified per item (MBLEA1/MITBAL). For purchased items it is retrieved from via supplier file (IFLEA1/MITVEN)
