Ship's Deployment - 10287f_72
and  the  monthly  stock  record  review  if  you  are going  to  maintain  effective  stock  control  of  all your  ship’s  store  merchandise  and  supplies. Remember, the goals of stock control are to main- tain  an  optimum  stock  level  of  90  days’  supply and  to  achieve  a  sales-stock  ratio  of  1.33  to  1. You  should  consult  your  NAVSUP  P-487  and NAVRESSO P-81 for authorized stock items and their  recommended  quantities. STOCKING  THE  SHIP’S  STORE When it comes to actually selecting merchan- dise for stock, you must consider several factors so  you  can  provide  your  customers  with  a  satisfac- tory  selection. CREW  PREFERENCE As  a  senior  Ship’s  Serviceman,  you  should always  be  alert  to  the  preferences  of  your  crew members.  You  should  frequently  question  the ship’s  store  operator  as  to  the  over-the-counter comments of crew members concerning the ship’s store  merchandise.  But,  you  should  also  in- formally  or  formally  (by  means  of  a  question- naire)  seek  the  opinion  of  individual  crew members. TECHNICAL   ASSISTANCE In addition to the preferences and responses of  your  customers,  you  also  have  a  considerable amount  of  technical  assistance  available  to  you for the selection of your ship’s store merchandise. NAVRESSO Publication No. 81 You  should  use  this  publication  to  supplement the  information  in  your  NAVSUP  P-487.  Items in   NAVRESSO   Publication   No.   81   are   based upon consumption factors per person per month, which  were  derived  from  an  analysis  of  actual sales  for  an  8-month  period  (deployed  and  in  port) in  ship’s  stores.  (These  data  were  received  from various  hull  types  which  include  both  Atlantic  and Pacific  Fleet  ships.)  Consumption  data  for NAVRESSO  P-81  will  be  collected  periodically and the results of future analyses will be shown in terms of support for 90 days for various com- plements.  Multiples  of  quantities  shown  should be used to arrive at the quantities to be stocked for  your  individual  ship. Your   NAVRESSO   Publication   No.   81   also contains   the   following   information. Denotes  inventory  limitations Discusses the five Rs of retail merchandis- ing Lists  do’s  and  don’ts  of  sales  and  sales promotion Provides popularity percentages for broad categories  of  items,  such  as  candy  and shaving  cream Recommends  stocking  plans  for  ship’s stores  afloat  (90-day  stock) As  mentioned  before,  the  maximum  dollar value of ship’s store stock that you carry on your ship  should  not  exceed  54  times  your  current officer   and   enlisted   allowance,   including   em- barked  staffs,  embarked  air  groups,  Marine  Corps detachments,   and   passengers,   or   the   highest onboard  personnel  count,  whichever  is  greater. This calculation will allow for a 90-day supply of stock. Remember, there are items that are called “never-out”  items  and  should  be  maintained  in stock  at  all  times.  These  items  are  identified  in your  NAVRESSO  P-81.  Pay  close  attention  to your  never-out  list  and  the  recommendations  in NAVRESSO  P-81,  and  make  all  changes  as needed.  In  fact,  your  development  and  main- tenance of a basic stock list will provide you with an essential management tool you can use to pro- mote  an  effective  ship’s  store. Many  of  the  luxury  and  semiluxury  types  of items  (watches,  jewelry,  and  so  forth)  are  listed in your Ship’s Store Afloat Catalog  (SSAC).  The buying  guides  contained  in  your  SSAC  will  specify types,  brands,  colors,  or  other  details  you  must have  to  complete  an  order.  Your  SSAC  is  con- stantly being updated with new styles and types of  items  to  make  it  easier  for  you  to  keep  your store  updated. Consolidated  Afloat  Requisitioning Guide Overseas (CARGO) Whenever  your  ship  is  deployed,  you  must  use your  Consolidated   Afloat   Requisitioning   Guide Overseas  (CARGO)   to   requisition   standard laundry  chemicals  and  standard  Navy  clothing stock.  You  will  find  that  the  national  stock numbers  are  listed  in  chapter  2  of  the  CARGO. 4-13
