SCRS Announces Details for OEM Technology Summit
Oct. 11, 2019—The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has recently released the details for one of the three sessions during the 2019 OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit at the 2019 SEMA Show.
The OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit will be held Thursday, Nov. 7, and it marks the fifth year the program has been included in the Repairer Driven education series lineup.
The first session description to be announced is OEM Session II. This session will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The session will cover a comprehensive conversation surrounding accessibility to OEM repair procedures and technical support.
The program will be led by Mike Anderson, president of Collision Advice. Other members of the panel include Dan Black, advanced body development and collision repair manager, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Eric Mendoza, collision operations for Toyota Motor North America, Nicole Riedel, wholesale parts specialist for Subaru of America, Inc. and Scott Kaboos, chief instructor for collision repair, American Honda Motor Co.
Accessing, utilizing and documenting an adherence to OEM repair procedures has become one of the most prolific conversations in the collision repair industry. But for many repair facilities, creating practices and processes that account for the variety of places OEM procedures are found, and the places that collision repair staff need to look in the technical documentation can be a challenge, even when the culture within the repair business embraces the decision to use the OEM repair manuals. Even further, following the procedures can often lead to questions that may require a degree of support or service to ensure that repairs are being performed accurately and as intended. This panel discussion will allow various automakers to discuss accessibility and use of their OEM procedures.
OEM Session I will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and OEM Session III will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
