A regional Home Depot office issues approximately 1500 PO's per 40 hour work week to its suppliers. Through data collection, it is determined that the average value add time for a PO is 30 minutes. Assuming a Home Depot has world-class business processess, what is the lead time for any given PO to be issued? How many PO's would we expect to be in process at any given time?

1500 P O s 40 h o u r s = 37.5 P O s h o u r 38 P O s h o u r So you're making approximately 38PO's in a work week.
1PO=30 minutes on average
38 P O s h o u r 30 m i n u t e s 1.3 hours for any given PO to be issued
At any given time you should expect at 1 PO to be inprocess
