(Purchase Order) Cycle Time

Here are just a few of the many Cycle Times you should consider for your Supply Chain. All of these measures should not only calculate the days (or hours) from the start and finish, but also between the various steps in between.

Customer Order Promised Cycle Time: The anticipated or agreed upon cycle time of a Purchase Order. It is gap between the Purchase Order Creation Date and the Requested Delivery Date.
This tells you the cycle time that you should expect (NOT the actual)

Customer Order Actual Cycle Time:
The average time it takes to actually fill a customers purchase order. This measure can be viewed on an Order or an Order Line level.
The measure starts when the customers order is sent/received/entered. It is measured along its various steps of the order cycle. Through credit checks, pricing, warehouse picking and shipping. The measure ends at either the time of shipment or at the time of delivery to the customer (sometimes tracked by using an EDI #214). This "actual" cycle time should be compared to the "promised" cycle time.

Manufacturing Cycle Time:
Measured from the Firm Planned Order until the final production is reported. It usually takes into account the original planned production quantity versus the actual production quantity. Example: X% of the planned quantity must be completed on a production run or the cycle time should not be considered.

Purchase Order Cycle Time:
Measured from the creation of the PO to the receipt at your location (Distribution Center, Hub etc). One of the keys here is not not have your RDD (Requested Delivery Date) exceed the agreed to lead time. If it does, it may artificially inflate your Lead Time.
Additionally, any in-between points available will add value to the metric. Example: Creation of the PO, Shipment from the Vendor, Receipt at the DC. This will tell you the manufacturing time vs the transit time.

Lead time in Supply Chain Management
A more conventional definition of Lead Time in the Supply Chain Management realms is the time from the moment the supplier receives an order to the moment it ships it in the absence of finished goods or intermediate (Work In Progress) inventory--it is the time it takes to actually manufacture the order without any inventory other than raw materials or supply parts.
