When something is in preparation or is going to be processed , it is in the hopper.
What is a hopper?
It is a chute or in-basket for in-coming work.
Here are a few examples in context:
- It is in the hopper. it will be done by tomorrow.
- I can’t speak to you about the new product. It is in the hopper.
- Your job is in the hopper. We will process it next.
