...results in a relatively long lead time for our software products.
Should I use this expression in an article for average software developers? (i.e. an international Java magazine) Would it generally be understood?
I have been in development for about 6 years now, and I came over here to find out what lead time means.
I asked around and four other people don't know what this means. I think it is not commonly used.
Does it mean the same in Java?
I would say that most educated people, especially those used to working in project environments, will understand the term.
