Abstract : A vital but often ignored supply function at Navy Stocking activities is the periodic inspection and preservation of material in store in order to insure that ready-for-issue material is furnished the operating forces. The purpose of this study is (1) to examine and summarize the basic cyclic inspection and preservation procedures and the deteriorative material procedures which are promulgated by certain Navy Inventory Control Points for selected categories of material, (2) to determine and summarize the common elements in the procedures and to make comparisons of the requirements imposed by the various inventory managers, (3) to obtain local operating procedures from selected stocking activities for the purpose of determining the effectiveness of the Inventory Control Point directives, and (4) to make recommendations for simplifying and improving the present systems.
