For example, the AutoCreate Configuration Item concurrent program could automatically compute fixed and variable lead times for the Laptop Computer configuration based on the routing steps that were included from the model routing. In this case, the Clean Processor step would contribute to the lead time. So, if the Clean Processor step included one hour of setup time, then it would contribute one hour to the fixed lead time for the configuration.
Note: When your model's routings has no option dependent routing steps (or has a minimum amount of time spent at option dependent steps), you can choose not to calculate lead times for each configuration item. Oracle Manufacturing automatically assigns the model item's lead time information to the new configuration item when you do not specify to calculate lead times for the configuration item.
