Seabee Planner's and Estimator's Handbook. The tables in this handbook provide information about the type of equipment required. Estimate the production rate per day for each piece of equipment, You should consider the factors discussed above, along with information obtained from NAVFAC P-405 and your experience. The quantity of work divided by the production rate per day produces the number of days required to perform the project. After determining the number of days of required equipment operation, consult the project schedule to find the time allotted to complete the activities. Prepare the schedule for the total deployment. Use the project schedule to determine when the work will be performed. The schedule should also indicate peak usage. It may have to be revised for more even distribution of equipment loading, thereby reducing the amount of equipment required during the deployment.
ESTIMATE SHEETS. - After the reviews and revisions, prepare a list of equipment required. The list must include anticipated downtime. Sufficient reserve pieces must be added to cover any downtime.
To aid you in preparing the equipment estimate schedule, use such forms as those shown in figures 9-5 and 9-6. The important information on the forms
