CHANGES TO CAMSHAFT AND CAMSHAFT KIT CORE ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

In October, the Remanufactured Products Group announced an additional level of core refund on camshafts and camshaft kits effective December 2, 2002.

To allow for processing of outstanding core, we are implementing a grace period of ninety days. On March 3, 2003, all AVSpare inspection facilities will inspect core to the new Reman Camshaft Acceptance Criteria SELD0049-03. Any cores received on or after this date will have the partial core credit applied if applicable.

The partial core credit pricing information will be available in CMIS II by December 1, 2002. The grace period will allow each dealership to use their best judgment on when to start applying the new criteria for cores that will be received at AVSpare inspection facilities after March 3, 2003.

Media Availability

For complete details, please refer to Reman Camshaft Acceptance Criteria SELD0049-03. The criteria is available on the dealer extranet at https://reman.cat.com. Additionally, the current active criteria SELD0049-02 will still be available on the website until March, 2003.

In addition to this website, copies of the revised criteria will be mailed to holders of the Remanufactured Products Guide. After Jan 2, 2003, dealers can also order the revised criteria (SELD0049-03) through normal literature order.

Core Management

Please refer to the AVSpare? Core Management Information System (CMIS 2) Parts Information application describing all reman part/CAF and related information. Also refer to other CMIS 2 inquiry applications such as Customer Profiles, Inspection Reason Codes, Inspection Line Inquiry, Add Charge Information, Entitlement Activity, Entitlement Inquiry, CCR Inquiry, CCR Entry, Shipment Processing; Process Packaging Grief; and Reporting to
properly manage core returns and monitor inspection performance. This information will be available to all dealers worldwide after your CMIS 2 conversio n date. In the meantime, please continue to use the current CMIS Entitlement Parts Inquiry Screen describing the list of parts in a Core Acceptability Family (CAF) and related part number detail.
