You can normally see the lead times from the "Lead Times" tab from the item master form. These lead times can be entered manually, but the enetered values can be over wridden by the manufacturing leadtime rollup. OR when you perform "Roll up lead times" option from the BOM.
*) Processing lead time is the time to purchase or manufacture an item.
*) It is computed as the time required to complete 1 leadtime lot size of an item.
Hope this helps
I'm aware of where to locate the Lead Time values. However, I'm not sure whether or not the values in the Lead Time fields represent work days or calendar days.
I'll see an item number that has a pre-processing time of 5, a processing time of 50, and a post processing time of 20. I'm not sure if the 5-50-20 are working days, which then means a total of 105 calendar days (5/5*7)+(50/5*7)+(20/5*7) or if it's a combination of calendar days and work days.
Where can i find out the setting for this?
As a rule of thumb, internal lead times are in working days and external lead times are in calendar days. This is because Oracle does not know the working calendar of the external entities (e.g. supplier).1 person found this helpful
So preprocessing time and post processing time is in working days.
Processing lead time is in calendar days.
Hope this answers your question
thanks for the direction Sandeep, but where would I go in the system to confirm this? There has got to be a screen somewhere that allows me to view what the settings are currently.
This is NOT a setting that you can view.1 person found this helpful
Oracle always behaves like this.
Best way to verify this is to create an item with PreLt=5, Processing LT=7 and Post-processing lt=5.
Then create a sales order with a due date of say 9/21. Make sure 9/1 to 9/21 is regular 5 days week.
Assuming no holidays, it will mean that you need material on the dock on 9/15 (5 days of PPLT = 7 calendar days.)
So when MRP/ASCP creates a Req/PO, the promised date will be 9/15.
Also, the Days from today will point to 9/1 - which includes 7 days of processing + 7 days of preprocessing (5 working days)
Hope this answers your quesiton.
This confuses me now. I've been told that our system has Pre-processing and processing Lead time in working days and post processing in calendar days. we define pre-processing as time required to process an order, processing time as time it takes for an outside vendor to manufacture goods, and post processing time as time required to ship product from vendor location to our DC.
i think a test order is the best way to find out eh?
What you have been told is not right.
Pre-processing => working days
processing Lead time => calendar days
Post-processing => workign days
Moreover, post processing time as time required to move the product from your receiving Dock to a usable location (typically your warehouse rack). This includes the time needed to download material from the truck, inspect it and have the warehouse personnel put it up on warehouse racks.
