    delivery times are usually entered in material master to allow automatic planning by MRP to propose a delivery date in the requisition.

    In a manually created purchase requisition it is the user who enters the desired delivery date.

    Does the user really not know when he needs the material, so that he expects a default from somewhere? 

    Who will be able to tell at a material group level what a planned delivery time is?

    A material group can have a variety of materials with quite different lead times.

    We usually have already difficulties to convince the people to enter a meaningful time in material masters as they argument that this is quite a different time dependent on the vendor.

    I don't think there are any option to enter planned delivery time or processing time at material group level.

    You may can use your own development, in a Z table, you can store the information and then call the Z table by using the badi ME_PROCESS_REQ_CUST.
