2 hrs
budget "buffer"


Explanation:

That is the direct translation. I am not suggesting that you use it, leomar's suggestions are excellent. I just want to tell you the meaning of "partida colchón", which by the way, in Mexico is known as "colchón presupuestal".

Lead time; extra time allowance;


Explanation:
"Because we do not know the duration of the acquired material we should supposedly allow extra time to the remaining time for finalization of the program."


So, I think this refers to the timing of the program not to programming budget.

Regards.

14 hrs
buffer or cushioning amount....


Explanation:
in other words, a "reserve" account that would allow for the additional expenses in case the production takes longer than expected.
