RD3E - Enhancing Your Business: X-Ray Estimating, An Ace Up Your Sleeve for Performance Improvement

Presented by Mark Muller, PPG Refinish

Fifty percent of the average shops business has very little margin for error, and can be a significant drag on Cycle Time performance. X-Ray Estimating® is an approach that changes the estimating paradigm and can take repairs that spend days at the shop and in some instances allow them to be completed in a few hours. Shops that have been exploring this approach have experienced significant performance gains. The approach is similar to X-Ray Repair Planning® with its objective of identifying all damage prior to production, but X-Ray Estimating® is completed on vehicles that can be returned to the road while parts are acquired, and in many cases paint operations completed, allowing the customer to wait while repairs are completed. In this session we will cover best practices from several successful implementations of the X-Ray Estimating® approach: How this approach differs from Conventional Estimating and X-Ray Repair Planning®; How to develop your culture and design the X-Ray Estimating® process; System Design options within X-Ray Estimating® to broaden performance improvement opportunities; Streamlining the Administrative Management of the X-Ray Estimating® process; Qualifying and selecting the proper vehicles to put into the X-Ray Estimating® process; How to market effectively X-Ray Estimating® to consumers and insurers.
