SCRS Members,

Manual Change to a Line of an Estimate
- If the estimate user changes a line in the estimate, each estimating system notes that there was a change;
Audatex shows at the bottom of every estimate in the ops code that an asterisk * = User-Entered Value.
CCC also states in the footer of an estimate that an Asterisk (*) or Double Asterisk (**) indicates that the parts and/or labor data provided by third party sources of data may have been modified or may have come from an alternate data source.
Mitchell shows at the end of an estimate that an asterisk * - Judgment item.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY - it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
