In this paper we show that the recently introduced "input-weighted average lead-time" is equivalent to the average lead-time measured per item. Furthermore, we state that measuring the average lead-time does not depend on knowing the applied priority rule. Consequently, the relationship "average lead-time is equal to the fraction average inventory over average utilization" holds true for every priority rule. Altogether this can be seen as Little's Law in a continuous setting.
