I had a date change to 11-29 on the bottom of my window sticker last night. This is an indication they are looking at the builds for Wednesday, 12-01. The number remained at 11-29 this morning on 11-30, an indication my Bronco may have gone into assembly, I think we are about to roll out our production week and the first rotations will be blended on 12-01 tomorrow!
Take my advice. The date on the bottom of the window sticker doesn’t mean shit. They automatically update every week. Many of us have worn out the F5 button on those. It’s worthless. There are much better indicators to track.

I’m not sure what any date change on the bottom of the WS means, but I can confirm that mine was 11/23 (the day it was first visible) this morning, and after refreshing it tonight, it now reads 11/30, which is exactly one week from when it was originally created...

Which could support what each of you are saying above…
Mine changed as well

I just figured that was the "last edited date". If so, that could conceivably happen if someone opens it up and accidentally clicks "Save Changes" instead of "Don't Save" when they close, if such an interface exists. For me, I use it only as an indicator as to whether something else on it might have changed.

When the WS changes, at least I know Ford hasn’t forgotten about my build.

... speaking of...

Just checked my WS now out of curiosity, and the bottom date changed from 11/23 to 11/30. A bunch of other stuff changed too:

New (looks like they figured out where to send it?):

If I had to guess, there was a typo / transcription error when someone keyed in 5595 as 5559, and that pulled up the delivery instructions to ship my build to Michigan via truck. Then, just before they started the build-week, there was a review process (QA) that checked all of the actual orders against the window stickers, and they caught the destination discrepancy. So now I'm a rail shipment instead of a convoy delivery, and while my rotation number is unchanged, my X / Y numbers are now unique. Nothing else on my WS changed: blend date, etc. are all the same as before.

If anything, this is encouraging that they caught the mistake and corrected it before they shipped it to some unknown destination in Michigan.

Does anyone know the significance of some of those other changes?

Are you sure your blend date didn’t change? You‘re now #16 out of a run of only 317, rather than #1494 out of my same 1932.

Seems odd. Like you could have changed days or production runs.
I'm sure. From the new WS:

Same blend date, and same rotation number. Aut-lin, same tracker, temporarily had a 36/317. Odd, but there must be some application-enforced uniqueness of numbers that makes it a pain to swap destination orders (5559 --> 5595) and keep build sequence numbers.

Go ask anyone that was trapped on Dirt Mountain about that theory…

This is the first I’ve heard of this happening. I’ve got nothing.

Checked my WS to see if they changed anything. All I’ve noticed was the date on the bottom. No other changes beyond that. I don't think it means much to be honest.

Also, now that its the first day of December. Lets see how long it’ll take for the first modules to start populating for this group. If I were to guess, we might see the first modules being populated by the end of this week or early next week.

Seeing we have guys with blend dates of today in this week’s group, we could potentially see guys from this week get mods populated today.

In looking at the 11/22 week guys with 11/24 dates, (if they and MAP follow the pattern) there’s a chance they they are on schedule.

Most of 11/23 blend dates are showing popped on the spreadsheet.

Looks promising to me!
I think we'll see them get through 50-75% of the 11/24s today. They need to mod-pop ~330 11/23s, and then get through 880 vehicles for the 11/24s. More than 1200... they won't finish today. We'll see our 12/1s start to pop maybe tomorrow evening I would guess.
