It's generally 26 weeks, plus or minus, from the initial YYWW date. Once a TLSP APARs releases, the YYWW code is be updated.

My PowerHA selection process would be:
* 7.1.3 SP06 if I needed to deploy quickly, because I have build docs for that. However, it may be withdrawn from marketing in 2018.
* 7.2.0 SP03 if they wanted longer support, but had time for me to work up the new procedures during the install.
* 7.2.1 SP01 when it comes out, but not 7.2.1 base.

My AIX selection process would be:
* 7.2.1.2 for any NIM server or POWER9. Next updates should be Oct 2017.
* 7.1.4.4 or later for customer preference. Next updates should be Oct 7.1.4.5 and Jan 7.1.5.0.
* 6.1.9.9 Minimum level for application compatability. This is is the final TLSP.
* For anything POWER6 or older, I push hard for p710 to p740 or s81x/s82x as replacements (cost).
* For anything AIX 5.3 or older, I push hard for app testing on newer AIX (EoS).
** PTF U866665.bff (bos.mp64.5.3.12.10.U) enables POWER8. AIX must be 5.3.12.9. Must be patched before p8 (install nim or mksysb). p8 must be 840 firmware. VIO must be 2.2.4.10 or later.
** PTF U866665 requires an active extended support agreement AND p8 systems on file. No free access to biz partnets.

Code sources:
* rpm.rte and yum ezinstall, then deploy tar, wget, and rsync:
