In a PDR Matrix, values are assigned for the number of dents in a range and for each dent size listed for a given row in the table. A PDR Matrix table includes the following elements:
- List of outer panel: This list is comprised of outer panels on the vehicle.
- # of Dents range: This is a user defined range for the number of dents on the selected panel. Once a value is entered, the next row increments by 1 for the next range of dents.
- Hours or Dollar amount for a given dent size, (Dime, Nickle, Quarter, Half): These are user defined values expressed as dollars or hours for each dent size as listed in the row. For example, 1 to 5 Nickel sized dents can be valued at 100 dollars to repair.
- PDR value expression: The values for each dent size listed can be expressed as Hours or Dollars. Dollar amounts can also be designate as taxable if the option is selected
