Learning Objectives

  • Define blueprinting
  • Explain efficiencies gained by implementing a blueprinting process
  • Implement blueprinting in any size facility
  • Implement blueprinting in any type of repair
  • Describe staffing needs for blueprinting
  • Describe responses to negative reactions about the blueprinting process
  • Compare and contrast initial estimate with blueprint
  • Identify instances where initial estimate is still useful

Module 1 – Understanding the Blueprinting Process
In module one, students will learn about the blueprinting process and the efficiencies gained through its implementation. The course emphasizes that blueprinting can be done in any size facility and for any type of repair. Industry experts share their process of blueprinting and the benefits associated with its implementation.

Module 2 – Staff Considerations
Students explore the staffing needs for blueprinting in module two. The course describes common objections that may be held by employees who are new to blueprinting. Students will learn possible responses to those objections.

Module 3 – Estimate vs. Blueprint
In module three, students compare and contrast an initial estimate with a blueprint. The course examines instances where an initial estimate may still be useful.

Module 4 – The Blueprinting Process
Module four focuses on the process of blueprinting. Students will explore successful strategies for blueprinting. Industry experts share how blueprinting can be used to draw in customers. The course identifies standard operating procedures (SOPs). Students will sequence logical steps in the blueprinting process.

Module 5 – Production Manager Role
In module five, students explore various tasks for managing a blueprinting process.
