CONTROL OF FAST-COPY MACHINES
A problem which requires the attention of
everyone in your office is the control and use of
fast-copy machines. Increased availability of these
machines has created security problems and
increased operating costs. These machines permit
quick, easy reproduction of uncontrolled classified
reproduction equipment. This creates excessive
waste material that can contribute to compromise
of classified information. Some misuses and abuses
that contribute to high operating cost are:
Using a copier instead of making carbons
Copying blank forms or publications
Making more copies than are needed
Using a copier for items that should have been
copied by the print shop
Controls should be established to prevent
unnecessary costs and prevent security abuses
Calculators add, subtract, multiply, and divide.
Most models in use by the Navy are capable of
performing a variety of complex mathematical
operations but do not produce a paper tape of the
results. A substantial amount of training is
required to operate a calculator with proficiency.
Simple multiplication and division that an SK
would be required to perform can be learned in a
Many publications used by the Navy supply
system are in the form of microfiche. They require
the use of a microfiche reader. These readers are
easy to use and do not require specialized training.
Figure 3-2 shows typical fiche data fields.
The publications you will use can be divided
Operations are governed by law. Procedural
manuals have been developed to assist Navy
personnel in performing their jobs. Efficient
procedures have been developed that save time
communications between commands clearer and
easier to understand. When you transfer from one
ship to another, this uniformity makes it easier to
transition into the new assignment.
Technical publications are necessary because of
the wide range of material required to keep the
publications primarily to identify material.
The publications needed by ships and stations
vary, but those described below are used by most
supply departments afloat.
