(a) Unless the Petitioner, Respondent and Arbitrator otherwise agree, the Arbitrator shall order a prehearing conference. At the conference, the Arbitrator may consider, as appropriate, any of the following:
(1) The simplification or clarification of the issues;
(2) The possibility of obtaining stipulations, admissions, agreements on documents, understanding on matters already of record, use of affidavits, or similar agreements which will avoid unnecessary proof;
(3) The limitation of the number of expert witnesses, or avoidance of similar cumulative evidence, if the case is to be heard;
(4) The possibility of agreement disposing of all or any of the issues in dispute;
(5) The desirability or necessity for prehearing briefs;
(6) A timetable for completion of discovery;
(7) Date for commencement of the hearing on the merits and an estimate of time for the hearing;
(8) Such other matters as may aid in the disposition of the Arbitration. The results of the conference shall be reduced to writing by the Arbitrator in the presence of the Parties, and this writing shall thereafter constitute part of the record.
(b) The Parties may be ordered to exchange, at the prehearing conference, or at some other time in advance of the hearing, all exhibits each Party intends to offer at the hearing (other than exhibits exclusively used for impeachment or rebuttal); and may be ordered to index, offer and file some or all of the exhibits in advance of the hearing. The Party offering an exhibit at the hearing shall provide sufficient copies so that each Party, the Arbitrator and the witness have a copy.
