Shop work that contributes directly to the
completion of a project. For example,
prefabrication of components.
Project and site surveying.
Camp maintenance when accomplished as
part of the battalion direct labor tasking.
Mineral product operations for either a tasked
project or as a specific tasked project.
Construction equipment operation when
assigned to a tasked project.
2. INDIRECT LABOR is man-days expended to
support construction operations. but does not produce
an end product itself; therefore, this time is not
repotted/recorded under a project number; it is recorded
under an indirect labor code. The codes are as follows:
XO1Equipment, Repair and Records
XO2Project and Camp Maintenance
XO8Adminstration and Personnel
3. READINESS and TRAINING are comprised of
functions related to preparation for and execution of
military exercises, disaster preparedness, mobility, and
technical training. Training includes attendance at
service schools, factory and industrial training courses,
fleet-type training, special Seabee training courses,
safety training, military training, and any other
organized training conducted within a battalion.
Report/record these man-hours under a specific name.
Your report should be submitted on a typical daily
time card form, similar to the one shown in figure 1-13.
The form provides a breakdown by man-hours of the
activities in the various labor codes for each crew
member for each day on any given project. This form is
reviewed at the company level by the staff and platoon
commander, then it is initialed by the company
commander before it is forwarded to the Operations
Department. It is tabulated by the management division
of the Operations Department with the daily labor
distribution reports received from each company and
department in the unit. This report is a means by which
the operations office can analyze the distribution of
manpower resources each day. It also serves as feeder
information for preparation of the monthly
OPS/SITREP reports and other source reports required
of the unit. This information must be accurate and
timely. Each level in the company organization should
review the report to analyze its own internal
construction management and performance.

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Describe key
items of maintenance support required for the
Civil Engineering Support Equipment (CESE)
The tools, consumables, and spare parts needed to
support the equipment allowance of the unit are
portions of maintenance support. The Supply
Department is responsible for providing these items.
In a battalion, the Supply Dpartment is under the
control of the supply officer, who is assisted by a chief
Storekeeper. The supply section (S-4) is responsible for
general supply, ships service, material control, and
delivery. The material control section is responsible for
ordering, receiving, and controlling tools, materials,
and repair parts. As you can see, S-4 has a big job. Keep
this in mind when you become impatient with the
REPAIR PARTS SUPPORT
Mechanics expect repair parts to be available when
neededand rightly so.
It is the job of supply to
provide the parts you need; however, supply cannot
satisfactorily perform its support mission without the
help of maintenance personnel. Mechanics must
understand how the repair parts supply system works
and make sure that supply knows what you need and
