'Lead time' nghĩa là thời gian từ lúc thiết kế sản phẩm tới lúc sản xuất thực tế, thời gian đưa vào sản xuất (the time between the initiation and completion of a production process, the period of time from when a product is designed to when it is produced or manufactured); thời gian chờ hàng/giao hàng (the period of time from when an order for goods has been placed to when it is delivered).

Ví dụ
Your idea is indeed very intriguing, but with a lead time as long as that, we'll have a hard time securing investors.

Microsoft announced changes to its policies Thursday including providing more lead time for companies like Kaspersky Lab to ensure compatibility with Windows and allowing those companies to produce their own error messages.

A special facility for handling imported raw cotton at Dakshin Bharat Gateway Container Terminal at VO Chidambaranar Port in Tuticorin has come as a welcome relief for the spinning industry in the South. The industry will now be able to use this transhipment facility to source its raw material requirement without too much of a lead time.

Taiwan-based fabless IC firms expects to receive an influx of short lead-time orders from their China-based clients prior to the country's National Day holidays in October followed by Single's Day promotions in November. The pull-in of orders, mainly for smartphones, is set to buoy chip suppliers' revenue performance in the fourth quarter.
