    • See Below for the links to the documentation shared in this meeting.

    • Chuck supplied a Draft of Repair Categories

      • The Main Categories in the document:

        • Damage Analysis & Estimating (Added Repair Planning/Blueprint)

        • Body and Structure Repair

        • Refinish

        • Mechanical

        • Electrical

        • Hybrid/Electric Vehicle

        • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

        • Diagnostics/Calibrations/Programming

      • Discussion started with adding Aluminum (Steel and Mixed Materials) under the Body and Structure Repair Category.

      • The Question of Damage Analysis & Estimating was discussed, and it was decided to add Repair Planning/Blueprint to the category for better clarification.

        • The initial ‘guess’ estimate is not valid, until the vehicle is disassembled the repair plan cannot be completed.

        • We also have things that need to be done before the disassembling of a vehicle for safety.

        • The Estimator stopping by and making an estimate in the driveway is still a thing.

        • The AI taking pictures, we need to determine more what is in this estimate.

          • Do they have the things such as pre-scan, replacing all the impacted parts, calibration or does it recognize a headlight is needed to be replaced.

          • Does AI use OEM Repair Procedures?

        • Augmented Reality is also a new tool that can be used in estimates and validation of proper repair.

      • PII with information of the vehicle and VIN

        • The VIN for the vehicle can be tied to financial information and insurance information, when it comes to areas of using the VIN to get information in blockchain aspects, we will need to make sure the PII information from VIN is not shared.

      • More Additions to Body Structure Repair

        • Corrosion Protection

        • Adhesives

        • Structural Rivets/Fasteners (One Time Use)

          • Many cases, fasteners are torque to yield, and that means that once you remove the, they can no longer be torqued to yield because they have already been used once.

      • SCRS complete guide to repair planning and published to the industry may be a good place to align our categories.

        • Tim will work on getting the SCRS document for the committee to review.

      • OEM One Stop

        • Another place where categories can be found is the OEM One Stop

          • GM had several different pages with different categories and subcategories.

          • Audi had one listing under collision and some of these matched up with GM and Chuck’s categories above.

          • All of the other OEM Collision information needed subscriptions, therefore, the only 2 in the document are GM and Audi.

            • Erin will look at the categories for Subaru.

            • Mark will look at the categories for Audi and Volkswagen.

          • When we get the categories more defined, Mark will reach out to the OEM Roundtable to get support.

        • Going through the exercise of looking at categories on different sites will help identify Buzz phrases that should lead the path to getting the right information.

Great Meeting Everyone, please check out the documents for the meeting and OEM One Stop to help identify Categories for the next meeting.
