Inquiry Resolution

We have reviewed the current Audatex labor procedures and labor allocation for the SEALANT KIT,QTR GLASS (GN 0317/0318) and GLASS,QUARTER TINTED (GN 0321/0322). In Audatex, when a user adds both aforementioned items to an estimate, the system allocates the labor to the lowest guide number after any applicable overlap is applied. This guide number hierarchy is integrated into Audatex labor development. Estimator judgement times or manual entries will not remove preexisting overlap deductions where labor economies between multiple parts have already been considered. This is the normal function of the Audatex Estimating system. No change warranted at this time.

Database Inquiry

Inquiry Type: All Other

Database: Audatex

Issue Summary: When selecting to R/I the 1/4 glass and replace the qtr glass sealent in Audatex, the Labor time is be allocated to the sealant instead of the 1/4 glass.When I delete the sealant labor (Which is the same as the glass labor) the glass stays as INC

Individual Procedure Steps: Remove quarter glass, cleanup, prime and re-urethane.

Actual Time To Complete: 1 hours minutes

Suggested Action: Fix the database to not have any labor times associated with the qtr glass sealant and apply the labor time to the glass it self. There should never be labor time associated with the "sealants" on any models. This screws up the reporting
