    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    @ice-capades Do you happen to know anything about the scheduling situation yesterday? It seems as if no scheduling took place. Multiple forums and no one seems to have gotten the email, yet scheduling was slated for yesterday. Thanks in advance.

    Of course? We just saw the platinum bulletin about the massaging seats having to be dropped. Why would they cancel orders due to 5WP not being available if they didn’t for massaging seats. I’m not buying they are “out of them” though. I haven’t seen the prep package as being constrained in a while and many people have been scheduled recently with it on their build sheet. The actual fifth wheel hitch though, yes I’ve heard that is constrained.

    In this situation it’s probably just best to go to the sales or inventory manager. It does make no sense to move your priority up if they have everyone at the same and are letting order date be the “deciding” factor where you sit in line. Buckle up and wait. This is the other (ugly) edge of JIT manufacturing methodology. They run lean and it works, until it doesn’t. Your salesman is just in the dark with the situation as everyone else. They’re in the sales business, not manufacturing business. If you are after that information, there is a super duty manufacturing Facebook group where factory personnel frequent and drop relevant constraint or production info.

    It’s simply a collection of air bladders that inflate and deflate to simulate a “massage”. It really is not a massage

    That sounds like a load of s$@%. They just don’t want to wait for the reimbursement or don’t want to do the paperwork.

    I stand corrected, thank you.

    COVP retail orders qualify for incremental scheduling which is not tied to the larger Thursday scheduling which includes all other order types like fleet and stock. Incremental scheduling with COVP orders means you can get scheduled any day of the week.

    Wow that is so shortsighted and frankly stupid. Time since order should always be weighted highest. If that’s the case then you’re right, the dealer should be working that USOB for their customers. Of course we know the path of least resistance always wins and that’s simply “don’t touch it”, unfortunately.

    What would constitute managing it “properly”? Setting all orders at 10 vs all at 19 would make no difference since that priority is only relevant to that dealer, IIRC. If a commodity “restrained” order can’t be built due to that, it doesn’t matter if it’s at prio 10 or 19. It still won’t get built.

    2022 F-350 status request

    Just wanted to bump this and say good luck in your future endeavors, man! It’s tough leaving a gig you’ve been with that long. Time and energy expended, relationships made. Even though I only interacted you for one status request, it was a great ride 😄. Again, good luck!

    I don’t see how an incorrect email would cause that. You still ordered it. It’s not like they didn’t submit your order

    Has anyone gotten a “you’ve been scheduled” email yet this morning?

    That new red with BAP looks phenomenal. Between antimatter blue and that red, they are neck and neck for best looking new colors. Sort of wish I got out of my comfort zone and got one of them. Settled on Carbonized Gray with BAP.

    Maybe I’m just stupid but why would you get a dually but not the diesel? Seems kind of goofy to me. Maybe local landscaping outfits with a gooseneck and heavy equipment or something? What use case does that fill that a SRW gasser wouldn’t?
