e. Line 1. Enter the month and year or Julian date in which the computation is
(1) If using the Julian date, use a Julian Date Calendar for either perpetual or
leap years whichever is appropriate. Refer to Extract 1, Julian Date Calendar (Perpetual)
and Julian Date Calendar for Leap Years Only, pages Extract 1-4 and 1-5.
(2) When using the Julian date, use a four-digit number. The first number
represents the last number of the year, for example, 1992 = 2. You need to know the month
and day before you can use a Julian calendar. The last three numbers are obtained by
locating the month (across the top of the appropriate Julian calendar) and the day (along
the left side of the Julian calendar). Locate where the row and column intersect.
(3) For example, if you are determining the Julian date for October 10, 1993,
the number is derived as follows below.
The first number is 3 (from 1993)
(b) The Julian calendar for perpetual years is appropriate because 1993
was not a leap year.
The number from the Julian calendar corresponding to October 10 is
The Julian date is 3283.
f. Line 2. Enter the quantity demanded during the control period (360 days).
(1) Take this data from the summary of demands section on the DA Form
1296. Refer to Extract 1, Sample of DA Form 1296, page Extract 1-2.
(2) Immediately before you make each requisitioning objective (RO)
computation, summarize for the previous year all demands posted to the DA Form 1296 in
the summary of demands section.
(3) Compute the quantity demanded during the control period by adding the
entries in the bottom half of the recur line for the most recent 12 whole months. This sum
is entered on line 2.
g. Line 3. Enter the order ship time (OST). Compute this by using either of the
(1) Use the Individual DSS Activity Performance Report (IDAPR), published
by the USAMC Logistic Control Activity (LCA), to find the OST average for priority
designator (PD) 09-15 requisitions without backorders. (See paragraph 1-6 below for an
explanation of priority designators).
