Overlap In CCC One

Overlap is defined on page G5 of the Motor Guide to estimating as the following:

OVERLAP

When replacing two or more components the duplication of included

labor procedures is known as overlap. Labor procedures

(R&R/R&I/D&R) that create overlap include, but are not limited to,

mechanical attachment, welding, bonding and/or technician

preparation. For example, when replacing a quarter panel and rear body

panel on the same vehicle, the common required labor procedures

necessary to remove and replace or reinstall these components is

known as overlap. When a labor overlap condition exists, less time is required to

replace adjoining components collectively than is required when

they are replaced individually.

Overlap labor information is generally included at the beginning

Of each group or subgroup within each chapter.

An example is when replacing a quarter panel and rear body panel. Each panel will have a replacement time that includes for all necessary functions, but when replacing both panels at once, there will be steps that are accounted for in duplicate where the panels meet, thus producing an “overlap deduction” to account for the operation only being performed once. In CCC One you will notice a system entry line that states “Deduct for Overlap” and a negative labor amount.

Refinish Overlap

During the refinish process if you are painting 2 or more parts there will be some form of overlap with this process. CCC One has the following for refinish overlap.

  1. Major panel overlap
  2. Minor panel overlap

Major panel overlap is taken when a panel has a base refinish time of 1.o hours or greater. Minor panel overlap is taken when the panel has a base refinish time less than 1 hour. This is defined on page G35 of the Guide to Estimating.

MAJOR PANELS/COMPONENTS

All panels or components with a base refinish time of 1.0 hour or greater are generally considered by MOTOR to be major panels. Example: grille header panel, fender, hood, cowl top panel, doors, roof panel, rocker panel, quarter panel, engine lid, trunk lid, liftgate, rear gate, rear body panel, truck cab corner and back panel, truck bed front and side panel and van side and corner panels.

 

MINOR PANELS/COMPONENTS

All panels or components with a base refinish time of less than 1.0 hour.

 

Along with Major and Minor panel overlaps CCC has adjacent and non-adjacent panel overlaps. Below are the calculations for this operation

 

OVERLAP – NON-ADJACENT PARTS:

• First major panel:

– Use full published time

• Each additional part:

– Deduct 0.2 per part

OVERLAP – ADJACENT PARTS:

• First major panel:

– Use full published time

• Each additional part with a base time of 1.0 hour or greater:

– Deduct 0.4 per part

• Each additional part with
