To better understand production lead times, customers can use Anvyl’s Lead Time Estimator. The solution provides real-time predictions for the number of days between a purchase order being placed and the shipment confirmation of that order, otherwise known as production lead times.
The predictions are provided by a proprietary machine learning model that combines a number of signals to recommend a target ship date for your purchase order. The data inputs used in the model include historical lead time data on similar parts, supplier communication, order-level relationships, regional trends, and other built-in learning logic.
To see a visual representation of some of the inputs the Lead Time Estimator uses, follow the instructions to create a new purchase order, and click View Details when a prediction is shown.
A graph will show you a visual comparison of your actual historical lead times for the parts ordering and how these compare to our predictions.
