ASSEMBLY. - Figure 9-4 shows a typical entry for an assembly; for example, Assembly 11923, flooring raised plywood moveable, provides the necessary material and estimated manpower required to build this assembly. Header information is the same as that for a facility. Assembly line-item requirements are listed by cognizance symbol and NSN. The unit of issue, weight, cubic feet, and dollar value are extracted from supply files once the requirement data is entered. This data changes often, but frequent changes are not made in the Facilities Planning Guide for stock numbers with minor price-level changes.
Figure 9-5 shows a typical entry for an assembly; however, this assembly is not associated with any facility. Assembly 11900 is an augment assembly tailored specifically for contingency operations. The 16-foot by 32-foot tent frame (strongback) is the most versatile tent assembly used throughout the NCF.
Suppose you have a requirement for an electrical distribution system underground. To determine what is available in the ABFC system to satisfy the requirement, look in P-437, volume 2, part 2, Index of Facilities, under the 800 series (Utilities and Ground Improvements), as shown in figure 9-6. If an approximate 11,000-foot system is needed, facility 812 30AB can be used. Figure 9-7 gives the information you need to fulfill the requirement for an underground electrical distribution system.
Certain installed equipment or collateral equipment, such as furniture and fixtures contributed by others, are not furnished with the facilities or the assemblies listed in the P-437. You must request this equipment separately. The assembly listings indicate what is installed or what NAVFAC collateral equipment is provided.
This section covers the procedures for the erection of the K-SPAN, the towers, and the bunkers. Other field structures commonly used are 40-foot by 100-foot P. E. B., the 20-foot by 48-foot P. E. B., the 16-foot by 32-foot strongback tent, and heavy timber structures, all of which are covered throughout this TRAMAN and in chapter 6.
