Failure to recognize the extent of equipment readiness required may result in excessive acceptance of equipment deficiencies and a maintenance backlog. Additional information concerning the duties and responsibilities of these elements is addressed in succeeding chapters of this Manual and associated process guides.

The procedures required for uniform and effective management of aeronautical maintenance resources are contained in this Manual and referenced process guides. Designated maintenance activities perform depot-level maintenance to augment stocks of serviceable materiel and support unit level maintenance activities.

Review of corrective actions is incumbent on the Commanding Officer and Engineering Officer to ensure underlying causes for discrepancies are identified and rectified to preclude recurrence. Standardized maintenance improves overall maintenance quality. reclaiming. This determination is based on the requirement for unit-level maintenance to support the mission. Systems requirements analysis is performed to determine the system capabilities. and whether the systems meet these requirements. They must be innovative. maintainable. Engineering Officers must gauge their maintenance capability when planning to meet mission requirements.13 (series). the Engineering Officer must take considerable care with this resource.

Positive action is required to identify and eliminate the causes of the specific defects noted. The required level of standardization will be achieved through application of the maintenance management procedures prescribed by this Manual and associated process guides. The relationship between maintenance capability and successful accomplishment of the mission must be clearly understood. MAINTENANCE EFFECTIVENESS.

Every effort should be made in maintenance plans and schedules to ensure personnel are productively employed throughout their workshift. billets.

The USCG target for aircraft availability is 71% (which equates to an NMCT of 29%). the primary goal of financial management at the unit level is to receive the maximum benefit from the funds available. The objective of maintenance documentation is to provide the Engineering Officer with timely. this information will aid in identifying problem parts or items and in the development of yearly budgets. and to provide an accurate record of completed work.

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a logical discipline for the management and analysis of scheduled maintenance programs. perhaps more importantly. a LCI Worksheet has been provided as enclosure 1 to the Aeronautical Engineering Maintenance Management Process Guide. The Engineering & Industrial Support Division (EISD) at ARSC manages the RCM program. Refer to the Supply Policy and Procedure Manual (SPPM).19 (series).

The classifications assigned to the USCG aviation unit levels of maintenance are defined as follows: 1. major changes in aircraft or support equipment assigned may also necessitate changes in on-board equipment or funds to maintain the required capability. The first classification describes the required level of maintenance utilizing local military and commercial facilities to the fullest extent practical. and return to serviceable status of unserviceable aeronautical components and equipment. The second classification is the minimum in-house or on-board capability required. A. Requirements for additional aircraft maintenance funds. therefore.

ARSC.Encl.� Proposed changes to aircraft software and problems and discrepancies with the aircraft software shall be submitted to the appropriate Stan Unit using the Software Trouble Report (see Figure 1. The ACCB gives the SSA the approval to proceed with development.� F. The SSA will develop the software change. Commandant (G-SEA) will direct ARSC to complete and publish the TCTO.). With final approval. The SSA will coordinate with the Prime Unit to perform both a ground test and a flight test of the software.� G. B. Commandant (G-SEA).� C. Prime Unit will send an evaluation report to ARSC. The OAG consists of representatives from Commandant (G-WKS). The Stan Unit will review. (7) to COMDTINST M13020.� D. ARSC will make their recommendation and produce a draft TCTO for ACCB (Phase II) review. The SSA will perform an initial analysis to determine feasibility of the proposals. The ACCB will review the package and accept or reject each item individually. The OAG will evaluate and prioritize the proposed changes. The SSA will confer with the Stan Unit.
