MRP lead time

MRP lead time

We are using Macola ES 9.7.400. We saw that you can add lead time to the operation by using Move Days, Queue Days, or Process Time. Can someone explain what each one is and how it might be used?

Thank you

RE: MRP lead time

From Macola help files.

In the Move Days field, enter the number of shop days required to move the items in this operation from one work center to the next.

In the Queue Days field, enter the number of shop days from the completion of the previous operation to the start of this operation. It is usually thought of as the wait time at the current work center before work starts.

In the Process Time field, enter the number of hours for the portion of the operation that is not productive time. Process time is used to define time in addition to labor and machine hours that an item must stay at the work center before continuing on to the next operation.

Thanks, sorry I forgot I posted this. I found that info a little later.
