What does "in production" mean on your order build? How long does it hang in production?

Has Dell changed the labeling of their order status?  It used to be that once a unit went into production, it quickly went into testing, then shipping. 

 

Here I saw processing - pre-production - now production for like a week.  Does it hang in production for a while and then jump right to shipping?

 

I am just trying to make sense of the status labels...

 

Thanks.
