How Can We Help?

How do I select a lead time for my quote?

Selecting the right lead time is an important part of ensuring that your project is completed on time and within budget. To select a lead time for your quote, simply follow these steps:

  1. Configure your part: Begin by configuring your part to your exact specifications. This will help us determine the production requirements and provide you with an accurate quote.
  2. Choose your lead time: Once you’ve configured your part, select the required lead time for your project in the production requirements section. You’ll see this option on the Preview page, under the “Lead Time” tab.
  3. Compare your options: When selecting your lead time, you’ll have two options to choose from: Economy and Standard. The Standard option has a lead time of 5 business days, while the Economy option has a lead time of 8 business days. Be sure to consider the effects of each lead time on the total cost of your project.
  4. Make your selection: After comparing your options, choose the lead time that best suits your needs and budget. Once you’ve made your selection, we’ll provide you with a quote that reflects your chosen lead time.
