Hi Guna,

Follwing the Mr.Chakri`s good explainsation, i am giving some details about lead time. can calculate the lead time by running the MRP with scheduling parameter = 2, here system will do lead time scheduling, You can check the result of the lead time scheduling in the planned order.

2. when creating prodution order also lead time scheduling is carried out.

lead time indiactes the time required to produce material. to calculate lead time system use following ,

1. standard values of the operation from the routing

2. floats values from scheduling margin Key (if u defined)

lead time calculation:

The system normally executes the lead time scheduling with backwards scheduling and starts from the determined order finish date

1.system calculates the production finish date by subtracting the float after produdtion days (defined in scheduling margin key) from order finish date.

2.then it calculates the prodution start date by subtracting sum of operation values from order finish date.

3.from the production start date, the order start date is calculated by subtracting float before production values from order production start date.

During the lead time scheduling the exact production dates are calculated.

reward the points if u found helpful
