should be entered on the DA Form 2407 before submitting to the maintenance
Any discrepancies in team members pay, or the Leave and Earning
statement (IES), must be reported to finance prior to leaving on the next
cycle. Also, requests should be submitted for individuals that want advance
(2) Training on new equipment is an important function that must be
taken care of between cycles.
If any new piece of equipment has been
issued, a team member should report to the laboratory and get all
information he can on the operation and capabilities of the item. The team
member should insure that all accessories, manuals and procedures are
obtained for it. At this same time, the team chief should insure that any
problems he had on the last cycle, pertaining to equipment, calibration, or
procedures, are coordinated with the right section for answers.
(3) A portion of the time that the team is at the home station for
recertification should be set aside for the individual members to take care
of personal matters.
During this time, team members should resolve all
medical/dental problems and attend to personnel and finance actions. With
the limited number of personnel on a team and with the time frames
established, it takes an individual effort of 100%, 100% of the time, for a
team to successfully complete its mission. There is no slack in a team's
schedule. Time used for on-job-training must be made up in some manner to
maintain production schedules.
(4) Another very important duty of the team while in for
recertification is to insure that the team TB files are up to date. New TB
should be put in the file, and the number added to the TB listing. At the
same time, the files should be reviewed for any superseded TB. Insert and
post any TB changes.
(5) The team's equipment must be cleaned, tagged (DA Form 2402), and
cross-checked before being submitted for calibration. During the time that
the team's equipment is being calibrated, the team chief should insure that
there is a team member at the laboratory to keep abreast of the progress.
Also, in case of a red-tagged item, he should be authorized to turn in the
red-tagged item, sign for a replacement, and turn it in for calibration. If
an item is red tagged, the team chief must be notified, as it may affect
(6) Once the team S level standards are calibrated by the laboratory,
and cross-checked, the team chief should start team members on calibration
of the T level standards that require calibration.
Cross-check procedures are performed on components of
the calibration standards set to detect a change (drift) in standards that
may establish trends and to assist in preventing out-of-tolerance standards
from being used in the performance of calibrations. The
