I am always wondering what's the difference of this two? Does the meaning of Lead Time& Delivery Time is the same? Please help me, thank you!

Usually, but I suppose that not everything gets 'delivered' so delivery time is not always appropriate.

Lead time are included process of prepare material, produce and transport to customer.

So how long of lead time depend on type of material, product and process.

Deliverty time is only transport period to custoermer.

That mean delivery time is part of lead time and part of supply chain process.

Hope the short meaning can help you.
