Scope help


Recommended Posts

I need some help interpreting a secondary ignition wave form. The only way I know to describe is as so. The coil fires and voltage spikes, now occasionally the burn line will start at the top of the spike and drop rapidly till the end of the burn. Basically a straight line on the spikes from start to end of a good wave form.

 

Any Idea?

      Typically, when productivity suffers, the shop owner or manager directs their attention to the technicians. Are they doing all they can do to maintain high billable hours? Are they as efficient as they can be?  Is there time being wasted throughout the technician’s day? 
      All these reasons factor into production problems, but before we point fingers at the technicians, let’s consider a few other factors.
      Are estimates being written properly? Are labor testing and inspections being billed out correctly? Are you charging enough for testing and inspecting, especially for highly specialized electrical, on-board computer issues, and other complex drivability work?  Is there a clear workflow process everyone follows that details every step from the write-up to vehicle delivery? Do you track comebacks, and is that affecting production?  Is the shop layout not conducive to high production? For example, is it unorganized, where shop tools, technical information, and equipment are not easily accessible to every technician?  Are you charging the correct labor rate and allowing for variables such as rust, vehicle age, and the fact that most labor guides are wrong? Also, is there effective communication between the tech and the service advisor to ensure that extra labor time is accounted for and billed to the customer? These are a few of the top reasons for low productivity problems. There are others, but the main point is to look at the entire operation. Productivity is a team effort.  Blaming the techs or other staff members does not get to the root cause in most cases.
      Maintaining adequate production levels is the responsibility of management to create the processes that will lead to high production while holding everyone accountable.

      Last week, I had an interesting conversation with a shop owner friend of mine. He told me that he does not mark up his parts as much as he once did, mainly because of pushback from customers. He states that Google, Amazon, Rock Auto, and others, have hurt that part of the business.
      I don't want to debate that fact right now, but what I told him is that It doesn't matter how you arrive at your required profit, but you need to maintain profits.
      If you concede on your part margin, then the only way to maintain your required Gross and Net Profit is to increase your labor rate.
      Your thoughts and opinions? I would like to know what other shops are doing with part margins these days.

      Why is reaching out for help so hard for so many people? Let’s break down the barriers and formalities and dive into what the first call to a business coach can be like. I’m with Aftermarket Radio Network host Coach Chris Cotton at ASTE 2022. Look, you don’t have a hobby you have a business that needs your attention to profitability. Never stop improving yourself and your business. Embrace accountability partners, peer groups, and coaching, and watch what you can do. Chris Cotton, AutoFix Auto Shop Coaching, Chris Cotton Weekly Blitz Podcast Key Talking Points
      People who don't reach out for help end up out of business or stuck not knowing what they need to know and not able to grow Chris asks a lot of open-ended questions on the first call and asks what prompted them to reach out and what struggles you have in your business.  If you're not afraid to disappoint someone, then accountability does nothing Join peer meetings and start networking to grow as the industry evolves KPI is used to measure strategy and leadership improvements Motivate, connect, and teach the younger generation A lot of people use work as an escape or release. Show love within your organization Hug until the other person breaks the embrace- are people hugging longer these days? Take criticization as a stepping stone to level up Reset your mind to be ready for the next thing
