Bridging Period
the period needed for VBA to adjust to an extended Delivery Time proposed by the Supplier

A Product is ordered weekly with a Delivery Time of 1 week. In week 1 VBA would order the Products needed in week 2, week 2 VBA would order the Products needed in week 3. 

In week 1 Supplier changes Delivery Time to 3 weeks. This would mean VBA would be unable to receive products in week 2 and 3 as week 4 is the first option that is 3 weeks ahead.

During this period (in this example week 2 and 3) Supplier has to Deliver goods with a shorter Delivery Time to bridge the gap. VBA will order the products for week 2(Delivery Time of 1 week), week 3 (Delivery Time of 2 weeks) and the products for week 4 (Delivery Time of 3 weeks as proposed by Supplier) in week 1
