RD17 -  100% Disassembly Best Practices - with Parts Mirror Matching

Presented by: Mike Anderson, Collision Advice  

Implementing a 100% disassembly process is critical to the success of your collision repair center.  Not only can it help you improve your cycle time by ensuring all the parts are discovered and ordered up front, but it can minimize your supplement ratio, which can affect your shop’s KPIs, as well as profitability.
Complete vehicle disassembly also supports and complements the parts mirror matching process since all parts are off the vehicle, stored in one common location and available to compare with the new parts.  On top of all that, it can also decrease the stress caused by last minute parts  orders for estimators, technicians and parts personnel.
So why do so many shops have trouble getting their estimators and technicians to buy-in and perform  100% disassembly?  This class will explore the importance of creating a culture of doing things WITH your people, not TO your people and how to gain their support for the common goal of 100% disassembly. Often shops believe they are completely disassembling vehicles, however, we find the vehicles still have components that should have been R&I’d.  Therefore, this course will look at the reasons WHY components need to be R&I’d from a vehicle and provide real-world examples for each reason.
This program includes:
• The benefits of 100% disassembly
• The importance of working WITH your people, not doing something TO your people
• Everyone’s role during disassembly • Reasons to R&I components with real-world examples
• Key tips when IMPLEMENTING and SUSTAINING 100% disassembly
