Chapter 6 The Dry-Cleaning Operation

review  each  stage  to  determine  time,  space, equipment,  and  operating  personnel  required,  and any other factors that will affect your schedule. DRY-CLEANING   STANDARDS Dry-cleaning standards are based on a 96-hour workweek  and  apply  only  to  those  ships  that  have a  dry-cleaning  capability.  These  standards  are included in the Shipboard Habitability Program, OPNAVINST   9640.1.   Your   dry-cleaning   plant should  have  dry-cleaning  equipment  and  press capability sufficient to clean and finish press one dress uniform per person per month. This works out to about 1 pound of dry cleaning per person per week. Any troops that are embarked aboard your ship should not be included in dry-cleaning considerations.  If  your  ship  has  between  100  to 500 personnel, you should have a minimum of a spotting  board  and  press  capability  to  finish  press one  dress  uniform  per  person  per  month.  Ships with 100 to 500 personnel desiring dry-cleaning equipment  instead  of  a  spotting  board  will  be considered  on  a  case  basis.  If  the  capabilities  of your  dry-cleaning  plant  permit,  you  may  also provide service to ships near your ship. That is, in the case of tenders or repair ships, your ship should  provide  dry-cleaning  service  to  ships tended  in  addition  to  your  own. DRY-CLEANING   EQUIPMENT CAPABILITIES Like the laundry, your equipment capabilities need  to  be  considered  when  scheduling  dry- cleaning    operations.    Based   on   observations, information data, and review of past records the following  can  be  expected  of  your  dry-cleaning equipment. Dry  cleaning—dry  to  dry—one  load  rated capacity per 50 minutes Dry-cleaning  press  utility—20  pieces  per operator   hour   (POH) These  equipment  capabilities  are  dependent  on training,   ability   of   personnel,   arrangement   of equipment, and hotel utilities available for your equipment. SPACE You  should  consider  the  space  in  the  dry- cleaning  plant  when  making  your  schedule. Normally,  dry-cleaning  plants  do  not  have  as much space as the ship’s laundry and you must have  rigid  control  of  the  schedule  from  the standpoint  of  receiving  and  issuing  so  that  the section can handle the maximum amount of work in  the  space  available.  Do  not  receive  more  dry weight  than  can  be  processed  in  1  normal  working day,  except  under  very  unusual  conditions. TYPES OF SERVICES Any services provided in the dry-cleaning plant should  be  completed  in  a  period  between  24  to 72 hours. Services provided for items other than regular  uniforms  should  be  clearly  defined  in  your schedule   including   the   days   and   times   these services are available. You should be flexible in scheduling  these  additional  services  especially  just before  a  personnel  inspection  or  on  a  tender  or a repair ship that may be offering services to ships alongside while in port. For instance, you should not be doing a large load of civilian clothes at the time of a personnel inspection when your work- load  will  be  extra  heavy  and  you  won’t  be  able to  get  the  work  done  on  time.  Modify  the  schedule around this time to make sure you get all uniform items  done  before  the  inspection, Normally,  officer  and  CPO  clothing  can  be processed   on   an   individual   basis;   however, enlisted  personnel  uniforms  may  provide  too  large a  demand  to  do  them  in  this  manner.  In  a situation like this, you may want to handle enlisted personnel  uniforms  as  a  bulk  (division/group) load.  If  you  do  this,  make  sure  each  enlisted person marks his or her uniform according to the U.S  Navy  Regulations,  1973,  so  you  know  who owns  the  clothing. DEADLINE  FOR  RECEIPT To eliminate any problems in receipt or pickup of dry-cleaning items, you should make sure you clearly  define  on  your  schedule  who  is  responsible for these tasks. It is advisable to set a deadline for receiving articles no later than 0900 daily. By requiring delivery before 0900, the dry-cleaning personnel can easily sort the articles into proper loads and keep the washer operating to capacity without  having  to  wait  for  sufficient  articles  of one  type  to  make  a  load. GROUP  OR  CLASS  SCHEDULING Schedule   similar   uniform   items   together because  washer  loads  must  be  of  similar  material. 6-2
