Manufacturing to delivery, how are scheduled MRP operations?

I am currently running OpenERP 6.1.

I sell product A that gets manufactured from say 2 different parts for the illustration.

I understand that product A gets manufactured from the date order moment, based on the manufacturing lead time. The 2 added together then give me my estimated delivery time. So if I confirm a sale order on the 11th of Feb and I have a manufacturing lead time of 3 days for the part that takes the longest to get, assuming I have no delivery lead time, I should then have an expected manufactured product on the 14th of Feb and by extension assume that the product can be delivered on the same day.

This is what I call Manufacturing from order.

What now if I want to deliver my product A to a customer on the 15 of May, knowing that the part that takes the longest to get is 3 days but it can vary, and that I would therefore like to start manufacturing 3 days before the expected delivery date?

The reason is I don't want to stock these manufactured products in my warehouse all that time and the delivery must not happen before the expected delivery date. How do I handle this in OpenERP?

What I need is what I call Manufacturing to delivery, which is subtly different from Manufacturing from order.

Actually, the OpenERP scheduler does exactly what you need "Manufacturing to delivery".

Here is the link to the documentation of the scheduling:
