Lead Time Calculation Option

Bills of Material lets you optionally compute the manufacturing and cumulative lead times for each new configuration item to establish accurate lead times based only on the options chosen.

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.
