6. Shop Equipment - Perform a joint inventory and inspection of all ALFA company shop equipment, noting conditions and deficiencies.
7. Preventive Maintenance - Perform a joint PM inspection to a "B" PM level on each nonpreserved item of USN-numbered equipment using the evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-9. Do all repairs with zero/minimum deferred work depending upon repair parts availability. Identify major body and paint work on EROs. Defer this work during the BEEP. The maintenance supervisors submit a signed, condition- coded equipment BEEP sheet to the COM2NDNCB or COM3RDNCB equipment representative for each piece of equipment.
8. Stored Equipment - Perform a joint visual inspection of each preserved item of assigned USN-numbered equipment, using the equipment evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-9. Do not depreserve equipment for testing unless visual inspection shows major discrepancies. The maintenance supervisors submit a signed, condition-coded equipment BEEP sheet to the COM2NDNCB or COM- 3RDNCB equipment representative for each piece of equipment.
9. Equipment Attachment Repairs - Perform a joint PM inspection of all equipment attachments, using the attachment evacuation inspection guide, figure 5-10. Both maintenance supervisors determine jointly that all possible repairs dependent upon work force, space, and repair parts available have been done. The maintenance supervisors submit a signed condition-coded equipment BEEP sheet to the COM2NDNCB or COM3RDNCB equipment representative.
10. Repair Parts - The repair parts portion of the BEEP is done according to COM2NDNCB/COM- 3RDNCBINST 4400.3,
11. Tools - After all the equipment has been through the shops and repairs are completed, do a joint tool inventory. All table of allowance (TOA) tool kits must be 100-percent complete or each of the missing kit items must be on order. Those tools that are not physically present in the kit boxes should have been ordered and a copy of the NAVSUP form 1250-1 placed in both the master folder and the appropriate field folder. The 1250-1 form has the requisition numbers and the date when a specific tool was placed on order. In addition to the master and field folder documentation the tool inventory sheets should have the requisition numbers entered next to the item ordered. All requisitions initiated by the battalion being relieved should be reviewed by both groups to verify the status of tools already ordered. Outstanding requisitions, over 90 days old, should be suspected as having been shipped but not received. These requisitions should be reviewed by supply to determine their actual status before initiating are order.
Power tools must be tested and have the proper safety color code for the period of use (the first period after turnover). All deadlined power tools should have repair parts on order. Again, when parts have been on order for over 90 days without good status information, you should consider the requisition questionable and initiate a reorder.
After the turnover is complete and the main body has arrived, it is time to start your project. You will not only need materials, you will also need tools. Tools in sufficient quantity and suitable condition are essential to the accomplishment of the battalion's mission. The crew leader must be aware of the responsibilities in the area of tool management.
CTR manages that portion of the TOA that includes hand and power tools, tradesman's tool kits, and other special tools. These assets require strict inventory management, maintenance of separate records for individual items, scheduled physical inventories, and scheduled PM. Since tools are valuable and highly susceptible to theft, tight security measures and accountability procedures are required.
The Table of Allowance (TA-01) is the primary allowance list for authorized tools. Group numbers within the TOA with a fourth digit of 1 or 2 are CTR items. An alpha listing of TOA tools should be available to all CTR patrons. The TA-01 allowance must be maintained at 100 percent at all times.
The BM will provide you procurement authorization for specific non-TOA project tools if any are required. Letters and messages may further authorize augment and other non-TOA tools.Continue Reading
