Chinese term or phrase:开放周期
Hello, the context is 这个是造成开放周期长。
I don't really understand the concept behind the 开放周期 or the process of the 开放周期 so I haven't come up with a good term for this yet. It seems like the 开放周期 is referring to a part of a cycle in which a supplier works with another company to help get the company's product on the market.
Thanks for all of your comments and references everyone! I think this one [development period] is the closest, although I wish there were a better match. Thanks again! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
