Question What is the difference between Production Date and Build Date?

Well my new 328i Sport was off-loaded in Melbourne on February 22 and I took delivery on March 6. Pretty quick eh? But I have a question! What is the difference between the production date and the build date in BMW speak? My dealer told me late last year that the car would go into production in the 3rd week of January and according to my car's specs which I accessed through the VIN on the BMW website it said Production Date 16.01.2015. Right on! However the sticker on the 'B' pillar says Build Date December 2014. Vot means this? I am just guessing but were all the components made by December and then just transported to Rosslyn for assembly in January?

Could be wrong, but I thought production date was when the finished product rolls off the line. The car would have started assembly in December - build date.
