Waste Abounds in the Traditional Collision Repair Model

The traditional collision repair model suffers from, among other things:

• Lack of defined standards causing quality fluctuation

• Lack of defined processes reducing predictability

• Inadequate process causing repetitive actions

• Lack of standards devaluing inspection process

• Late discovery of quality issue causing rework

• Individual technicians determining repair quality

• Work stoppage due to parts issues, bottlenecks, etc

At Bracken Collision Centers

• Vehicle prepared in a unique way so it can be worked on continuously until completion

• Work standards in place for each step in the system that are maintained and verified throughout the process

• Interdependent set of steps performed by a highly skilled and versatile team

• Inspections performed at the advance point between steps

• Visual workplace with directional-flow vehicle processing

• Status updates real-time and electronically accessible

• Flexible capacity that responds to demand/expandable, “Sprint” capacity
The inconsistent performance of traditional collision repair models can be costly

• Vehicles sit idle, waiting for parts or due to bottlenecks/multiple supplements in the repair process

• Misdiagnosed damage adds cost and time

• Loss-of-use costs are unpredictable

• Quality is inconsistent because of the lack of work standards

At Bracken Collision Centers

• We utilize “lean manufacturing” principles

• Standard work/standard equipment and tooling/standard processes deliver consistent quality with predictable delivery dates

• Redundant activity and idle downtime are reduced.

• Cost-conscious repair methodology delivers competitive pricing

• Streamline workflow creates consistency in guaranteed quality and delivery
