Production Week Scheduling Timetable

Recommended Posts

@ice-capades, When looking at the scheduling as you have posted, it shows F-Series Super Duty. I special ordered retail my F-250 from the dealer on 10-18-19. There were two F-350's special ordered retail on 11-8-19 from the same dealer. When it came to the week of 11-18-19 scheduling week, all three trucks were given VIN #'s with the last 5 #'s in sequential order (42916, 42917, 42918), with mine being the one in the middle. One of the F-350's was an XL with the 7.3 motor and the other was a Lariat with the 6.7 motor. Mine is an F-250 with a 7.3 motor. The two F-350's have been built and shipped but my F-250 was pushed out to 01-27-20. Could there be a reason why pushed out that far from 11/18?

Vehicles are not necessarily produced in sequence by the VIN numbers. There are a lot of different commodity issues that can cause the scheduled production of a vehicle to be pushed back and commodity issues/restrictions can vary by region. Trim (XL, XLT, Lariat, etc.) wouldn't cause a delay nor would the powertrain. There has to be a particular option on your order that caused the scheduled production to be pushed back due to a plant constraint, supplier problem, etc. Your Dealer should be able to tell you why your vehicle status changed. If they don't know they can contact their Ford Zone Manager or the regional scheduler for the answer.

Did talk to the sales guy. They do not have an exact reason and seems like they didn't want to contact the regional people. I did find that an F-250, just like mine with the exception of the front seat, was sent to production. I have been finding out that most vehicles that have been being built is with the 40/console/40 seats and not the bench in leather, which mine is the 40/20/40 bench. That is the only thing I can figure. Thank you for all your help. I will just have to wait until mid next month to get my vehicle. When I do, I will post pics.

It varies by vehicle and it depends on whether the dealer has allocation available or not, but from what I've seen it's typically around 3 weeks give or take.

Simply scheduling allocation for the previous week or scheduling cycle that didn't schedule do to commodity or other issues.
