Included in Lead Time Tracking Features and Functions
Lead Time Tracking Includes: If jobs are to be completed in a timely manner, manual or computer-assisted planning systems have to take into consideration lead times as well as actual production times. Setup and production times are easily understood. Queues are backups normally associated with specific pieces of machinery. Wait time may be thought of as the time when no work is performed on a job between operations. It may be travel time to get from one machine or work station to another, or it could be due to any other expected delay that is not directly associated with a machine or operation (like setup and queues).
