I recently order a 2020 Mustang GT and I am still awaiting a production date. I am new to the site and just wanted to make sure I understand how the scheduling for builds works. From my understanding since I have not yet received a VIN that means my build week will not be until after 11/4/2019. Also typically how long after a build date is assigned do you receive a VIN? I apologize if this is not the correct location for these questions.

Scheduling information is available in the Ford Motor Company Discussion Forum. If you don't have a VIN number your vehicle will be scheduled for production sometime after the week of 10/28/2019. It could be scheduled for production the week of 11/04/2019 if your Dealer has scheduling allocation and there are no commodity/option issues with your order specifications. VIN numbers are assigned at the time the vehicle order is "Submitted to the Plant" and scheduled.

Can you  tell me how Scheduled to Week of, relates to Scheduling for Build week, are they same thing?

It is my understanding the "Scheduled to Week of" refers to the week the car will be finished and rolls off the production line.

What does "Scheduling for Build week" refer too?

I appreciate the charts, just trying to understand what I am seeing.

Thanks for your help.

Basically the same thing. The first step in the scheduling process is for the order to be scheduled for a production week. The VIN number is assigned at that time. A short time later the production schedule is reduced to a specific scheduled production date. The actual production process, as reported, starts days before the scheduled production date which is explained in the scheduling process post, referenced in my reply above, in the Ford Motor Company Discussion Forum.

Does anyone know why no Mustangs are scheduled the second week now?

This is the final week of the current scheduling/allocation period. Mustang scheduling will resume next week with scheduling for December production over the next 3 weeks.

Thx, Joey.

Final question:

You said scheduling was done for the week of 11/18/2019, now you are talking about scheduling for the Dezember production.

That would mean, that there would be no production in last week of November. Is that correct or do I missunderstand something?

The plant has no scheduled down time until the week of December 23rd. It's possible that the plant may be scheduled to produce vehicles for export during weeks when no scheduling is done for U.S. and Canadian Dealers. I'm not certain of this and perhaps someone else who works for Ford and knows how the Flat Rock plant operates can add more input to help answer your question.
