How to join two tables with multiple common fields but no unique identifier

Hi, I'm still quite new to Power BI especially with the modeling part. 

 

I'm trying to join a table called LeadTimeGrid with the following columns:

CUSTOMERREGIONFACTORYSTANDARD LEAD TIME
AppleAsiaA10
AppleAfricaB8
AppleEuropeC8
BoyEuropeC5
BoyAsiaA7
BoyNorth AmericaD7
CatNorth AmericaE3

 

with the main FactTable:

CUSTOMERREGIONCOUNTRYFACTORYACTUAL LEAD TIME
AppleAsiaChinaA15
CatNorth AmericaUSAE25
BoyEuropeFranceC30
AppleEuropeItalyC2

 

Anyway I can create a new table or visualization that has the following data fields:

CUSTOMERREGIONCOUNTRYFACTORYACTUAL LEAD TIMESTANDARD LEAD TIME
AppleAsiaChinaA1510
CatNorth AmericaUSAE253
BoyEuropeFranceC305
AppleEuropeItalyC28

 

None of the values are unique, and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to create a many-to-many relationship with the different fields. 

Any help?

you can just create a column

Column = maxx(FILTER(LeadTimeGrid,'Fact'[CUSTOMER]=LeadTimeGrid[CUSTOMER]&&'Fact'[REGION]=LeadTimeGrid[REGION]&&'Fact'[FACTORY]=LeadTimeGrid[FACTORY]),LeadTimeGrid[STANDARD LEAD TIME])

Thanks for this! I actually ended up merging these two ables. Works the same.
