My Order in Relation to Production Week Scheduling Report

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm waiting for my COVP verified retail order for a 2022 Ford Escape SE PHEV to be scheduled for production.  They have my email address as I received an order confirmation email after ordering.  I'm wondering if the Production Week Scheduling report tells me anything related to my order - specifically that my vehicle will not be built before a certain month in the future (e.g. September).  For instance, if I haven't received an email scheduling production yet, can I look at the 6/20/22 report and see that they already scheduled Escapes for all of August and know that my vehicle will likely not be scheduled in August?

 

Assuming I can use it in that way, how do I read the report?  Does the report for 6/20/22 say they are scheduling all of August beginning on 6/20/22?  That they scheduled all of August on the Thursday before 6/20/22?  Or they will be scheduling on the Thursday after 6/20/22?  Can I assume they send out email updates on any of these dates?

The Production Week Scheduling Information report shows all the production weeks that will be scheduled during the current scheduling period which is about a month. As such, unscheduled orders that are selected for scheduling, in compliance with applicable commodity, plant and supplier constraints will be scheduled for one of the weeks in August. In addition, scheduling for this period is restricted to retail orders only, as noted. Escape PHEV orders usually take longer to schedule, due to the commodity and plant restraints. In addition, Escape orders usually don't schedule until the end of the current allocation and scheduling period.

 

Ford's customer e-mails do not always get sent on a timely basis or contain the latest status information. Your Dealer has 24/7 access to the Vehicle Visibility reporting system that includes the latest order status, the complete order history, and all scheduling, production and shipping status updates through vehicle delivery to the dealership. In addition, your Dealer has access to other resources regarding option and feature changes, as well as commodity and plant constraints. 

 

If you don't already know, you should ask your Dealer what your priority code is and how many other unscheduled retail Escape orders are ahead of yours. Retail orders use priority codes 10-19, but the WBDO (Web Based Dealer Ordering) system uses priority code 19 as the default, requiring Dealers to manually assign a lower priority.

Thank you!  That's very helpful.  Earlier this week my salesman told me there are no constraints listed for my vehicle and no unscheduled Escape orders head of mine.  They have two scheduled in July.

 

My priority number is 19.  Does priority number matter to my order if there are no other unscheduled Escape orders through my dealer?  I assume it only matters if someone were to order one at my dealer going forward and they get a lower priority number?

 

Also, does priority number only affect my order in relation to other Escape orders at my dealer?  All vehicles at my dealer?  Only Escapes at all dealerships?  Or all vehicles at all dealerships?

Priority code 19 doesn't matter, as long as no new retail orders are submitted with a lower priority code. 

 

The priority code only matters in relation to other Escape orders at your dealership. Retail orders use 10-19, stock orders use 20-80. The USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) is exclusive to each dealership and completely independent from the USOB at any other dealership.
