How big is the order? What is the period for completion?

So out of those 90,000 wagons, our company has received orders to supply 20,000 wagons. The deadline to complete this order is 39 months.
Will the company be able to complete this order within 40 months?
The managing director said the railways were instructed keeping in view the production capacity of the companies. Order out of capacity is not available. And so, Texmaco Rail has received orders according to its capacity.
