Woo hoo! Thanks for the update! I assume the TPW remains at 8/22.

I know that 3100 is "order available to sequence", but what does that mean?
It means that the system is taking in all the orders, looking at the option content, and working out the order in which to sequence the builds.

i.e.: If it takes 2x as long to paint a VY over a black car, you can't build 20 VY's in a row. Or with convertibles at 50%, you can't build 20 convertibles in a row. Bowling Green is now building 4 different models in the mix (Coupe, Convertible, ZO6 and XLR) so there is alot to consider.

That is why you will see that the weekly DOSP will vary slightly between the models at a plant - some weeks they will take in a large number of orders and then schedule the TPW's out over a couple weeks to accomodate the options and the constraints.
