The event, 2020R2 CIECAST, was hosted by CIECA and gave a technical update on changes that have been made, a business review on changes to calibration and parts and materials procurement.


Technical Review


A new workflow was established for calibration and scanning that included ADAS features, and according to Dan Webster, CIECA architecture committee chair, the data that was not shared between the collision and repair industries before was now able to be identified.


A calibration aggregate was added to describe information for pre-, interim- and repeated for post-repair. According to Webster, a calibration detail aggregate was added to document calibration details properly.


“There was also scan information and scan detail aggregates that were added to describe the scanning information as well as extra details,” said Webster.


Calibration Recap


Amberson quickly outlined several steps associated with calibrations, the first being to properly record the Document Scan Results (DTCs).


According to Amberson, there should be a printout or...
