RD22 -  You Schedule How?

Presented by: Charlie Whitaker, Valspar Automotive North America  

In today’s collision shop we experience an increasing pressure to reduce cycle time be it to satisfy the demands of our DRP or just having the ability to serve the customer more efficiently. Often time we look to the back of the shop at our technicians’ efficiencies or even writing a better sheet.  However, scheduling is a topic that is often times overlooked as relevant to the outcome of the shops performance; yet it’s a large contributor to your shop’s overall efficiency and cycle.  Through this presentation, we will discuss the importance of scheduling, the effect it has on your production, and the bottle necks it creates.  More importantly, we will discuss methods to analyze your shop so that you can understand your shops resource capacity and staffing needs.  Through which you will have a strong understanding and ability to setup and incorporate a scheduling system that best works for your environment that will ultimately improve your efficiency and overall cycle time.

Three outcomes an attendee can expect after participating:

1. Correctly identify bottle necks within your facility
2. Understand your facilities resource capacity so to properly staff your organization for optimal efficiency
3. Implement a scheduling system that will increase your overall efficiency and cycle time
