Handling Lots
supervisor.  As  a  Ship’s  Serviceman  third  class, you  should  be  familiar  with  factors  that  determine not  only  the  laundry  schedule  but  how  many hours  the  laundry  will  be  operating.  These  factors include  the  following: Amount  of  work  that  must  be  processed weekly Capacity  of  laundry  equipment Number  and  competence  of  laundry  crew These factors listed may be overwhelming at times. To eliminate problems and establish normal working  hours  for  personnel,  a  laundry  is generally  operated  in  shifts. A laundry shift normally lasts 8 hours. Your laundry may operate one, two, or three shifts per day.  Each  shift  must  have  experienced  Ship’s Servicemen to handle each shift so work turned out  is  satisfactory.  A  shortage  of  experienced personnel  will  require  strikers  to  assist  SH personnel.   Strikers   should   not   be   allowed   to operate equipment until they are qualified in using that equipment. PROCESSING  LAUNDRY The first step to processing laundry is receiving the different lots into the laundry, marking them, and classifying them. Articles to be laundered are delivered to the ship’s laundry either in bulk lots or  in  individual  bundles.  Bulk  lots  include  division laundry   (crews’   personal   clothing   and   linen), flatwork   (towels,   linen,   and   tablecloths   from staterooms,  officer  and  CPO  messes,  and  sick bay),   and   service   lots   (clothing   of   cooks   and foodservice   attendants,   barbers,   hospital   per- sonnel,  and  snack  bar  personnel). The workflow for individual and bulk lots is shown in figure 5-6. The solid black line running from the Bulk Lots block, top left, to the Issuing block at the bottom shows the steps in processing bulk  laundry.  The  broken  line  on  the  right  side of   the   chart   connects   all   types   of   work accomplished  on  individual  lots. The   receiving   laundry   personnel   are   re- sponsible for receiving, marking, and classifying all  lots  delivered  to  the  laundry. To perform these duties, the receiver should have a list of divisional laundry petty officers. The laundry  supervisor  provides  the  receiver  with  this list in case there is a need to contact a division representative  regarding  delivery  and  pickup  of laundry  or  to  resolve  problems.  Meetings  are normally   held   periodically   by   the   laundry supervisor   to   inform   divisional   laundry   petty officers of any changes that may occur in laundry policy. RECEIVING  BULK  LOTS When receiving bulk lots, the receiving laundry personnel  should  consider  the  many  problems  that may  be  encountered  when  identifying,  classifying, and  marking  these  bulk  lots.  Bulk  lots  are delivered to the laundry in large divisional laundry bags. You should be careful not to accept laundry bags  that  are  overstuffed.  Overstuffed  laundry bags cause handling problems during the laundry process. For the purpose of safety and production standards, divisional laundry bags should not be accepted  over  your  washer  extractor  capacity.  If you do accept bags over your capacity, they will have to be split upon the wash deck causing delays and  possible  claims  for  loss  of  clothing.  Check bulk  lots  and  make  sure  the  division  name  is stenciled in large letters on all divisional laundry bags  received.  You  should  also  check  bags  to make sure blues and whites are not mixed in one bag. If a divisional laundry bag makes it past the receiving section mixed with blues and whites, it will delay the laundry process on the wash deck as the divisional laundry in the bag will have to be  separated.  Divisional  bulk  laundry  bags  should not  be  accepted  until  all  discrepancies  noted  above have  been  corrected.  If  policies  concerning  your laundry  process  are  given  to  divisional  laundry petty   officers   during   the   monthly   meeting, problems  will  be  eliminated. RECEIVING  INDIVIDUAL  LOTS Bundles  received  daily  in  the  laundry  from officers and chief petty officers are considered as one  lot  of  individually  marked  bundles.  If  you have more bundles in the daily lots than available assembly bins, it is best to set up two lots daily. You  can  then  assemble  and  check  out  the  bundles in  the  first  lot  before  work  from  the  second  lot comes  to  the  assembly  bins.  Twenty  bundles  in a lot are easy to handle. Never put more than 50 bundles  in  one  lot. The  number  of  bundles  you  should  put  in  a lot  is  affected  by  the  classification  of  the  items in the bundles. Classification is the separation of a  bundle  of  laundry  according  to  color,  type  of fabric, and degree of soil; that is, white cottons, 5-8
