equipment. Figure 1-10 shows a sample Equipment Repair Order Log. The types of information generally called for are the following:
ERO number (assigned eight-digit number). (The first four digits are two alpha characters and two numeric, such as AA00. The last four digits are numeric and constitute a Job Sequence Number (JSN) which is assigned locally. This JSN runs continuously from 0001 through 9999. At such time as 9999 is used, a new series starts 0001.)
Equipment code (six-digit code, as shown on the PM record card).
USN number (seven digit equipment registration number).
Type of repair (type of maintenance performed, such as 01, 02, or 03).
Date in (date ERO forwarded to inspector).
Date out (date equipment is returned to dispatch).
Hard card number (number issued by dispatch from the hard card log).
Remarks (date deadlined, and so on).
The EROS and the ERO log are maintained by the PM clerk. Complete instructions on the use of EROS are located in the Management of Civil Engineering Support Equipment, P-300, and the COM- SECONDNCB/COMTHIRDNCBINST 11200.1.
An equipment history jacket is maintained for each USN-numbered piece of CESE. The history jacket contains the pertinent descriptive data and maintenance history of the vehicle. The descriptive data includes the appropriate DoD Property Record, DD Form 1342 (fig. 1-11), and Equipment Attachment Registration Record, NAVFAC 6-11200/45 (fig. 1-12), if applicable. The maintenance history jacket also includes the completed PM record cards and blue copies of completed EROS.
When a vehicle is transferred, the PM record card is removed from the PM group file and returned to the history jacket. The jacket is then either hand carried or forwarded by mail to the receiving custodian. When the vehicle is to be transferred to a Defense Reutilization Marketing Office (DRMO), the history jacket must accompany it.
In battalions and at shore-based activites, your duties involve posting of working hours on time cards for military personnel; therefore, you should know the type of information required in labor reporting. You should note that the labor reporting system used primarily in Naval Mobile Construction Battalions (NMCBs) and the system used at a shore-based activity are similar.
A labor accounting system is mandatory for you to record and measure the number of man-hours that a unit spends on various functions. In this system, labor usage data is collected daily in sufficient detail and in a way that enables the Operations Department to compile the data readily and prepare reports for higher authority.
Although labor accounting systems vary slightly from one command to another, the system described here can be tailored to record labor at any command.
A unit must account for all the labor used to carry out its assignment. Labor costs are figured and actual man-hours are compared with previous estimates based on jobs of a similar nature. When completed, this information is used by unit managers and higher commands to develop planning standards.
The labor accounting system covered in this section is based upon the procedure and guidelines established by both Naval Construction Brigades (NCBs) for NMCB use.
Time cards (fig. 1-13) are the basis for your situation report (SITREP) input. Therefore, it is imperative that time cards be filled out correctly and accurately. COMSECONDNCB/COMTHRIDNCB- INST5312.1 is the instruction that governs timekeeping procedures. Man-hours should be recorded under a specific code in one of three labor categories. The categories are listed below.
1. DIRECT LABOR is man-days expended directly on assigned construction activity, either in the field or in the shop, and labor that contributes directly to the completion of an end product. Tasked projects are assigned a project number. Labor expended on a specific project should be reported under that project number. Record direct labor by construction activity number. Included under direct labor (besides construction) arc such tasks as the following:Continue Reading
