The sequence of orders

We group orders together in batches. Until recently a group of orders in a batch had a delivery time at 5 weeks or higher. Now a batch can contain orders with a delivery time of less than 5 week.
At one process that feeds an assembly, components for orders are cut up in order of batchnumbers while at another feeding process the components are painted in the order of which week they will be delivered.
This cloud was constructed by a middle manager in the company.
