regardless of delays. If a delay occurs, normally the team should put in
some overtime to compensate for the delay.
If a delay is unavoidable,
insure that all future units on the cycle that will be affected are notified
through the Army calibration facility.
Prior to leaving a unit, the team
chief should arrange an exit interview with the company commander and unit
maintenance officer. At this interview he should provide the unit officers
with a report of items calibrated by the team and the reason some items were
Normally the team will submit a weekly time and production
report to the calibration facility.
Completed DA Form 2416 will usually
accompany this report.
(5) Each calibration team carries spare parts that they deem
necessary for repairs. However, repair actions can not interfere with the
calibration cycle as the time frame is very definite.
(6) The team will notify the calibration facility prior to each
departure from a stop, and the expected route of travel. The calibration
facility will also be notified upon arrival at each new stop. At a minimum,
phone numbers (duty and non-duty) and where the team members are billeted
will be given to the calibration facility.
Frequent contact is normally
(7) After calibration is completed at the last unit on the schedule,
the team chief should make arrangements for transportation back to the
laboratory, whether it be by truck, plane, or whatever. Prior arrangements
may be necessary. He will insure that the team will arrive at the AACL on
schedule, or as arranged with the operations officer.
d. After operations.
(1) One of the duties of the team chief is to insure that all forms
and reports are submitted at the end of the cycle. Upon arrival, he must
turn in all DA Forms 2416 for the last stop, along with the final cross-
check and last production report for the final stop. This report also lists
each item red-tagged along with the model number, serial number, and a brief
description of the discrepancy. He will usually keep in his files a copy of
the cross-check and production reports.
Another example of forms and
records required is the team's weekly time report. The time report may be
separate or part of the production report. It is usually a preprinted form
submitted weekly covering the time put in daily for team members. It should
coincide with the man-hours recorded on the DA Form 2416 plus all
maintenance and administrative time.
Also, all log books have to be
maintained, and DA Form 2416 must be checked for errors. The log books for
trucks, generators, carryalls, and anything that has a log must be checked
and updated prior to turning these items in for periodic maintenance. Prior
to turning them in, the team chief must insure that all operator maintenance
is completed and that the vehicles are clean. Any required maintenance, as
shown on the DA Form 2408-14,
