record cards are returned to the equipment history
jacket whenever CESE is transferred or the card is full.
The Navy uses repair orders to specify, authorize,
and control repairs on all USN-numbered equipment.
The repair orders also serve as a reporting document
from which information can be extracted to provide an
activity with a complete picture of how their
maintenance program is doing. They also provide
complete historical cost and utilization information for
each piece of CESE; therefore, the information
contained on the repair orders must be neat, complete,
and accurate. This cannot be overemphasized.
The Shop Repair Order (SRO) and its Continuation
Sheet (figs. 1-4 and 1-5) are used mainly in Public
Works activities. The SRO is a three-part snap out set. It
is required each time labor exceeds 0.3 of an hour, or
material is expended on a piece of USN-numbered
equipment. Instructions for using an SRO are contained
in the NAVFAC P-300 manual.
The Equipment Repair Order (ERO), NAVFAC
Form 11200/41 (figs. 1-6 and 1-7). wasdesigned for use
by all Naval Construction Force units to record types of
repairs and the total time a piece of equipment is out of
service. Accumulation of such data provides reliable
information to plan the budget, to determine
