Project GMT Scheduling
I know everyone, including myself, is chomping at the bit to see these start rolling out here. We are finalizing the scheduling for the Plankowners. This is what I can tell you at this point:
- We will be scheduling shipments by dial type. So Key West 1001/1002s will scheduled as a group, for example. Trying to schedule the orders strictly by chronological order would actually slow us down since its faster to assemble in batches by similar parts. That being said we will do our best to follow the chronological order.
- Right now we are trying to figure out how far in advance we can provide meaningful shipping estimates. This comes down to a matter of accuracy and how often we may have to manually revise and update the dates as a result of the pace of deliveries. The more we have to update this information the more time it takes away from actual assembly and shipping.
- The summer: In order to stay focused on assembly and shipping I will be canceling my personal vacation this year. Normally I go back to Taiwan to visit my in-laws in July. Unfortunately the return leg of the trip is just too disruptive as I usually spend weeks trying to get over jet lag.
