UTI incorporates ProfitNet Management System in training program
Sept. 16, 2011 — DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) recently announced that Universal Technical Institute (UTI) implemented the ProfitNet Management System into the Collision Repair and Refinish Technology (CRRT) training program at its Houston-based campus.
UTI uses ProfitNet as a technology tool to train its students how to manage a collision repair facility in every aspect of the business, including scheduling, production, job costing and financial management, according to DuPont.
“ProfitNet provides UTI students and instructors a way to measure continuous improvement and see the direct impact lean principles have on speed of the process and cycle time,” said Kelley Lowery, CRRT educational manager at UTI. “For six weeks students see the results of eliminating the seven wastes, the increase in productivity, cycle time and the impact it all has on their virtual paycheck. ProfitNet is the tool we use to document lean training.”
“DPC’s relationship with UTI is a long-term commitment to the educational process of preparing graduates for entry-level positions in the collision repair industry,” said Tom McGarry, information technology services manager for DuPont. “We are proud that UTI has chosen ProfitNet as a technology tool to expand their training capabilities.”
