Ships Serviceman 3 - How to fix and repair boats
Your material groups are broken down into three categories:  (1)  officer  and  CPO  uniform  items, (2) enlisted uniform items, and (3) miscellaneous items such as flags, foul weather jackets, civilian clothes,  and  any  other  items  not  included  in category  1  or  2. You should do officer and CPO items one day and  enlisted  uniform  items  another.  Any  items other  than  uniform  items  can  be  scheduled  out over the week. Thus, on any given day you would have  either  category  1  or  2  scheduled  with  two smaller  groups  of  clothing  out  of  category  3. Unless it is necessary, don’t ever have more than three  different  types  of  material  scheduled  on  any given  day.  On  large  ships  such  as  carriers  or tenders, the officer and CPO laundry is scheduled on  separate  days. ADJUSTING  THE  SCHEDULE Unlike the ship’s laundry, the schedule in the dry-cleaning plant may have to be adjusted more often  to  meet  specific  conditions.  As  stated  earlier, you  can  expect  a  synthetic  dry-cleaning  unit  to produce  one  clean  load  approximately  every  50 minutes. You can also expect to dry clean about 1 pound of laundry per person per week. If you take  these  two  factors  into  consideration  you should be able to determine the number of persons you can serve in a 1-day schedule and adjust the schedule  accordingly. RECEIVING  AND  IDENTIFYING The  proper  receiving  and  identifying  of  dry- cleaning articles is essential in preventing items from being misplaced. There are two methods for receiving  and  identifying  dry-cleaning  articles.  Use the  method  that  best  fulfills  your  needs. Method  A—Each  piece  of  dry-cleaning  work is logged in and out using a dry-cleaning work log. The log is maintained by the receiving clerk in a standard ruled book or lined pad of paper. If dry- cleaning  tags  are  used  as  stated  in  method  B below,  this  logbook  does  not  need  to  be  used.  If your dry-cleaning plant is using dry-cleaning lists without tags, use this log in conjunction with the dry-cleaning  list. Method   B—Each   patron   fills   out   the   list, removes   the   receipt   stub   at   the   bottom,   and attaches  the  list  to  the  bundle.  The  receiving  clerk then  tags  each  article  in  the  bundle  with  a  section of the premarked tag and staples the master(s) of the tag set and unused tags to the patron’s dry- cleaning list. DRY-CLEANING  LIST  AND  TAGS A dry-cleaning list is a record of dry cleaning processed  for  an  individual.  Such  a  list  saves  time and work in receiving and issuing and also reduces the probability of misplacing articles. These lists may be bought commercially or ordered through the Ship’s  Store  Contract  Bulletin.  You may use it  to  check  off  finished  work  returned  to  the assembly   room.   The   list   provides   for   plant control,  customer  receipt,  financial  control,  and furnishes eight tags for identifying the items that are  going  to  be  dry  cleaned.  The  procedure  for using the marking tags that are part of the dry- cleaning  list  is  as  follows: 1. Detach and safety pin or staple one tag to each article. If a customer has three articles, fasten a  detachable  tag  to  each  item  and  leave  the remaining tags attached to the master dry-cleaning list. 2.  When  you  assemble  the  items  that  have been dry cleaned, the count of the remaining tags confirms  the  number  of  articles  that  belongs  to one  customer.  Thus  if  five  tags  remain,  the customer  brought  in  three  articles. Cost columns that are located on the right side of  the  list  are  necessary  only  when  a  charge  is made  for  dry  cleaning. INSPECTION Inspect  each  article  for  detachable  uniform insignia  and  for  items  in  pockets.  Removal  of  ball- point  pens,  crayons,  lipsticks,  and  other  foreign objects at this point eliminates sources of damage to loads of clothing being cleaned. Put such items in an envelope and attach it to the customer’s dry- cleaning  list.  Return  pockets  to  proper  position before  cleaning.  If  you  find  spots  on  an  article, send  it  to  the  spotter.  Spots  should  be  removed from  the  article  before  it  is  cleaned. If   time   permits,    determine   whether   any buttons or buckles are missing or loose and note tears or any other marks. Note whether the article has a belt. Care in preliminary examination avoids trouble  later. 6-3
