a. Travel Time. This is the time required for necessary round trips
between the shop and the jobsite per worker per day.
b. Preparation Time. This is the time required for preparation in the
shop and at the jobsite and clean up at the jobsite and in the shop.
c. Work Performance Time. This is the time required for actual craft
work performance to complete the job order.
d. Delay Time. This is the time allowed for unavoidable, personal,
balancing, planning, and communication delays.
e. Direct and Indirect Material Requirements. Material types and costs
should be specified. The shop planner should have access to the quantity data
used in arriving at the estimated material costs.
f. Equipment Rental. Equipment rental costs from commercial sources
must be included when it is expected that necessary specialized equipment
cannot be obtained without charge."
g. Delay in Job Authorization. If the job order is not authorized and
issued within a reasonable time after submittal of the final estimate, the
estimate should be reviewed before it is resubmitted for authorization. If
necessary, it should be revised to conform to current material and labor
costs. Any decrease/increase in scope caused by the delay should also be
h. Surcharges and Overhead. These cost factors will be applied, as
necessary, in accordance with Volume III of the Navy Comptroller Manual.
14. JOB PHASE CALCULATION SHEET. The Job Phase Calculation Sheet should be
used by the P&E to establish the craft phase total time. This includes
non-EPS estimated time as well as EPS estimated time.
15. CRAFT TIME. The craft time for each task listed on the Job Phase
Calculation Sheet should be recorded to the nearest tenth of an hour where
practical. The total craft time, total estimated time, allowed time, and job
phase allowed time should be rounded up to the next whole hour.
16. DESIGNATION OF EPS ESTIMATES. Not all maintenance work can be estimated
using Engineered Performance Standards. Job Phase Calculation Sheets must
indicate hours that have been derived using EPS estimates. To do this, an
asterisk (*) should be placed next to the total hours when 75 percent or more
of the job phase allowed time is based on EPS data. When hours are combined
on the Estimate or Job Order, 75 percent of the total hours must have been EPS
derived before an asterisk is placed beside the hours. (See Figure 5-2.) If
the management system permits identification of actual EPS hours then the 75
percent rule is unnecessary.
17. REVIEWING THE ESTIMATE AND THE JOB PLAN. Job order impact on the shop is
of such importance that the P&E Branch Manager should carefully examine
completed final estimates. This review should include the following factors:
The final estimate review should assure that no item
has been omitted.
