You can set up purchase lead times on a vendor, a vendor trade agreement, an item's coverage settings, or an item. During master scheduling, Microsoft Dynamics AX searches for the purchase lead time according to the following priority:
The Item coverage form > Lead time tab. If the Purchase check box is selected, the Purchase time field is used.
The Site specific order settings form > Purchase order > tab > Purchase lead time field.
The Default order settings form > Purchase order > tab > Purchase lead time field.
A purchase lead time that is found by using this method can be overridden if a vendor is found based on trade agreements. Then the lead time from the trade agreement is used. This applies in these conditions:
No vendor is assigned to the item.
The Find trade agreements check box is selected on the Master planning parameters form > Planned orders tab.
