facilitate other maintenance will not be reported as long
as the same unit will be reinstalled on the same firewall.
When all modules are removed from a propulsion
system, the propulsion system is considered
disassembled. The propulsion system is placed in status
code 90 automatically and requires no ETR submission.
The ETRs can be submitted by using a naval
message or the on-line AEMS computer terminal. The
ETRs submitted by NAVAIR reporting custodians use
the vertical format. The ETRs submitted by
COMNAVAIRLANT, COMNAVAIRPAC, and
CNATRA use the horizontal format. See the examples
of the vertical and horizontal formats in enclosure 2 of
The goal of the supply organization is to provide all
the material or services requested by the customer(s).
However, to accomplish this goal requires a huge
amount of money and storage space. The inventory
management in the Navy use the projected customer
demand to stock materials. Any items that do not have
a projected demand are not stocked so that the available
resources (time, money, space, and personnel) can be
invested in items that have a high demand. Inventory
management includes deciding what items and what
quantity must be stocked for each item. Maintaining the
items at the level that fully supports the customers
needs is a challenge for any supply organization. A good
inventory management includes monitoring of all
transactions that affect the quantity of material in stock.
In this chapter, we discussed the functions of inventory
managers and inventory control points.
We also discussed the different terms and
definitions used in Navy inventory management. The
definitions for each term will help you understand the
word or subject as it is used in the supply procedures.
We discussed your responsibilities as a supervisor
in managing the inventories. File maintenance is as
important as doing any other functions in inventory
management. The files used in manual or automated
procedures should always be properly maintained and
Several management reports must be completed,
reviewed, or submitted. You should become familiar
with all the management reports. You must know when
the reports are produced, how to read them, and when
they need to be submitted to higher authority.
Most importantly, we discussed the physical
inventory requirement in the Navy. The purpose of the
physical inventory is to keep the inventory records
accurate. We discussed the different types and the
frequency for conducting an inventory and the standard
goals that should be met. We discussed the proceduresx
for conducting physical inventory ashore and afloat. We
discussed the procedures from the preparation for
inventory to the physical count reconciliation and
processing the adjustments.
We discussed the inventory requirements during the
relief of supply officers.
The AKs are involved in
conducting inventory of general supplies, controlled
equipage, and repairable (including MAMs and TBIs).
We discussed the special inventory items such as
aircraft engines, material stored in other departments
spaces, shelf-life items, and so forth. You should
familiarize yourself with the procedures for managing
We covered the procedures for conducting the
location audit and the required report of its completion.
