By understanding the main issues and causes of slow repairs and high cycle times, you can make improvements to save time and money.
Delays From Parts SourcingAccording to a recent industry survey of 300 professional body shops, the main obstacles to improving repair cycle time "keys to keys" are related to parts sourcing. The Number 1 obstacle was "waiting for parts," while Number 2 was "time looking for parts." Damaged parts cause additional repairs and delays.
It follows that there are big time (and money) savings in a more efficient and robust parts sourcing process:
- Have parts ordered and delivered quickly
- Save time searching for parts
- Avoid damaged and unusable parts
- Track the process to find more improvements
