That stat wouldnt apply for my morning post since no cars are reported shipped for the day at that point. Are you wanting the BS (build) to WS (shipped) for just the 595 cars I reported last night or in total for the year?
For just yesterday, BS to WS was 0 days. (meaning every car that was shipped last night started production yesterday) If you want average for the entire year: 4.7 days.
Keep in mind, this number would NOT include any car that is still waiting since they havent shipped yet, which are almost all going to be more than the 4.7 days so they would increase this number. Current average for all cars still waiting is 84.1 days and if I combine the both sets the average sits at 8.2 days.
Maybe a more useful number would be to only consider cars built in the last 30 days?
Those are as follows,
BUILT AND SHIPPED: 0.8 days
BUILT AND WAITING: 6.4 days
COMBINED: 1.8 days
If anyone has a better suggestion for a more meaningful way to interpret the numbers please let me know and I will do my best to accomodate
