The system calculates lead times for products in In-house Production and other Procurement Types differently. For in-house production products, the lead time is calculated as the sum of variable and fixed durations of planning operations that are available in the Production Model of the relevant product. The Goods Receipt Processing Time will not be considered for materials that are produced in-house.


As the Goods Receipt Processing Time is not being considered in the calculation of the lead time, the system is working as designed.
