Is there a certain day of the week(ex, thursday) that a dealership finds out if they have another open allocation spot to place an order or a 2015 vette? I was told by my local dealership that this thursday he would know if my order can be placed or ifi have to waiter longer, please advise genuine info. Thank you!

Dealerships get their allocation initially for the first half of the year, and separately for the second half of the year. They then get weekly Thursday info. This Thursday "consensus" process then goes as follows:

Consensus Process:

Dealers get their application report on a Thursday (consensus); GM assigns orders to allocation by Monday, and on Tuesday GM processes the orders which is when their status changes.

Consensus - Twice a month GM loads their "Estimated Shipments" into the order workbench. They determine how many of each product we (dealerships) have "earned". Based on a "snapshot" of our inventory, they consider our "adjusted day supply" (ADS) to the national ADS. We then review the estimated shipments and enter our 3 month forecast and requested quantities and submit. Unless GM has more capacity at a factory than dealers request, you pretty much are limited to what they say you can have. We (dealers) can turn down allocation; if we do, those units go to dealers that have requested more than GM estimated for them.

Final Consensus - This is the amount of product we get after GM has reviewed our requested quantities.

DOSP (Dealer Order Submission Process): the weekly order cycle. On Thursday dealers can place orders for units allocated to them. Orders must be placed by 9PM Eastern Time Saturday.

The weekly process consists of 4 stages.

1. Constraints Distribution - Dealers are informed on constraints to review before placing orders.

2. Dealer Order Submission - Dealers can order on Thursday, Friday or no later than midnight on Saturday. ( You can submit orders earlier but you don't know the contraints. A Constraint is a limit placed on a specific build configuration )

3. The 4-Pass Process: GM will attempt to place each dealers orders on Mondays using a 4-Pass process. (At this point a dealer may get more or less than was allocated if they asked.)

4. Dealer Review: You can review your placed orders for changes or replacements until Tuesday at 9pm ET. That's when the orders are sent for production.
****
GM moves orders from 1100 to 2000 on the Tuesday after the dealer is given that specific allocation. How quickly you move from A to B completely depends on the dealer's allocation. If the dealer had one when you placed the order, you are either at 2000 or will be next week. If the dealer was not yet assigned that allocation, you will continue to be at 1100 until he does. The length of time depends completely on allocations and your priority on that list.

If however, your dealer is not given an allocation on a Thursday, there is no chance of your order being picked up until, at least the following consensus (could be as soon as the next Thursday, or if GM is producing the entire following week's batch for Europe, until the first weekly consensus process after that).

Good luck!

Thanks very much John for the info. Do you know if this is the current week GM loads and opens more allocation/estimated shipments to dealerships or is it next week for the consensus?
