Army electronic product support (AEPS). AEPS is used to manage Modification Work Orders (MWO’s), check for Safety of Use Messages (SOUM), submit Product Quality Deficiency Reports (PQDR’s), and report weapons firing and service data (2408-4). The following procedures apply for the management of these areas. a. Modification Work Orders. Modification work orders (MWO’s) are managed through the Modification Management Information Systems (MMIS). When equipment is received by the FSC for maintenance the MCS and inspectors will check MMIS to ensure that all current modifications have been applied. If there are modifications that have not been applied the inspector in conjunction with the MCS will determine how best to get the modification kit if it can be applied at the field level. The fault for the MWO will be added to SAMS-E and the work will be completed one the kit is received. Once installed the inspector or MCS will ensure that MMIS is updated. b. Safety of Use Messages (SOUM’s). The MCS will periodically check for SOUM’s that apply to equipment being supported by the FSC. As new information is received the shop office will disseminate SOUM’s to the section affected. The shop office will maintain a file of SOUM’s. If the SOUM requires action the shop office will disseminate the information and track compliance.

c. Product Quality Deficiency Reports (PQDR’s). From time to time products do not meet the specifications for which they were intended. When this happens it becomes necessary to submit and PQDR. When an item is identified as being deficient it will be turned in to the shop office tagged with the NSN and the problem. The senior 92A for the FSC will initiate the PQDR on the AEPS site. A copy of the report will be retained in the unit maintenance files. d. Weapons Data Management. Weapons data management for units supported by this unit will be accomplished using AEPS. The owning unit will be responsible for updating all firing data and the supporting field maintenance shop will be responsible for recording all maintenance and gauging data. The owning unit commander will appoint in writing those individuals from the field maintenance unit authorized to make entries.

ANNEX E.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS, AOAP, TMDE)

OPERATOR PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS) 1. Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) is the foundation of Operator/Crew and Field Level Maintenance. With the use of the hands and eyes of the Operator or Crew assigned to the equipment, and through the actions of finding, reporting, testing, adjusting, replacing, filling, correcting, and as well as repairing the equipment, the Commander can maintain the unit’s equipment at a full combat readiness. The Commander and all unit personal must remember that PMCS is a continuous process. That operators will check and monitor the equipment; Before operation, During operation and After operation. The DA Form 5988-E/DA Form 2404 will be filled out in accordance to DA Pam 750-8, and to the proper Technical Manual procedures for PMCS. a. The Commander must fully commitment to the enforcement of published guidance on the proper performance of PMCS by Operator/Crew and Field Maintenance personnel. b. The Commander will implement a training program that results in Leaders, Supervisors, and Operators being fully qualified and dedicated

to performing or supervising PMCS tasks correctly. c. The Commander will give sufficient time blocked in the unit’s training schedule specifically for the performance of Operator PMCS (-10 level) on a weekly basis. d. The Commander will give sufficient time blocked in the unit’s training schedule specifically for the performance of field level PMCS (-20 level scheduled services) based on time estimates provided by the Maintenance Officer/NCOIC. e. The Commander will allow as few as possible unscheduled distractions that take equipment Operators, Maintenance Personnel, and Supervisors away during scheduled PMCS periods. f. The Commander will initiate the establishment of strict quality control procedures for repairs and scheduled services. g. The Commander will insure that all special tools, lubricants, and publications will be on hand to accomplish any PMCS task required by the applicable TMs at the Operator/Field level maintenance. h. The Commander will insure that proper PMCS performed by the Equipment Operator/Field level maintenance personal will ensure early detection of faults and maintenance requirements. i. The unit shop office staff will insure that supported unit equipment coming in for service or repair will have a completed DA Form 5988-E/DA Form 2404 by the equipments operator prior to opening a job order.

SCHEDULED FIELD LEVEL SERVICES 1. General:

To maintain military equipment at a full combat readiness condition, preventive mechanical care must be given on continued bases. This will include Operator and Field level PMCS. PMCS helps to find and eliminate mechanical problems before they become serious, dangerous, or costly. Another way to keep equipment at peak combat performance is by performing Scheduled Services. Scheduled services are a key factor in maintaining both equipment and unit readiness. Services are the actions performed that brings the equipment back into the specifications set by the manufacture and stated in the appropriate technical manuals. These will include; testing, adjusting, and checking of tolerances/calibration, mandatory replacement of parts, lubricating, changing of fluids, exercising, and operating. These services are based on the number of hours of operation/flight, the number of miles/kilometers driven, the number of rounds fired by a weapon system, and also based on the number of days since the last service.

Do to the high tempo of military operations that’s faced every day. Sometimes equipment that has services that are due or over due may not be available right at that time. For this problem there can be a 10%+variance aloud in the parameters for the services, as stated in the appropriate technical manuals. 2. Company Responsibilities:

Obtain “Scheduled Services” printout from the FSC monthly. Obtain “Services Scheduled/Not Performed” data from the FSC monthly. Incorporate scheduled services into unit duty schedule. Prepare vehicle by performing 10/20 level PMCS in accordance with the proper TM. Dispatch and transport vehicle to FSC location for service. Track status of equipment while in service. Re-dispatch vehicle and pick-up upon completion of service. 3. FSC Responsibilities: Ensure scheduled services are IAW Brigade guidance SOP. Ensure services are scheduled and updated in the SAMS-E. Verify that GSE and WVRS service packets are kept on file in the SAMSE/Shop Office for minimum one year for each piece of serviced equipment. (NBC, COMMO, and Armorers are required to keep theirs in their section for inspections). Provide Company Commanders with a copy of the service schedules monthly for projection. Brief Maintenance control on services status. Ensure that section NCOICs order parts for the services as well as parts needed to correct faults found during services. Provide “Scheduled Services” printout monthly to supported units. Provide “Services Scheduled/Not Performed” data to supported units monthly. Perform unscheduled maintenance activities as required. Open services in SAM-E. Receive Contractor service packet from supported unit. Correct faults and order parts as required. Close service in SAM-E.

Train unit QA inspectors as required. 4. Procedures for All:

Managing the scheduled service program will be a cooperative effort between the unit owning the equipment, section or FSC supporting the owning unit. The owning unit will incorporate the service schedule into the duty calendar and ensure all platoon assets are available for duty during the scheduled service period. The unit may not always be able to perform a service when it is scheduled and is given a 10% variance before or after the schedule of days, miles or hours. If the unit stays within the variance, the service is treated as if it was performed on the day it was scheduled. NOTE: Equipment requiring services every 180 days has a variance of 18 days before the scheduled service or 18 days after the scheduled service IAW DA PAM 750-8. If the equipment is past due for a service, it will be put in administrative dead line (non-dispatchable) in the SAMS-E, IAW DA PAM 750-8. Until the service is completed and cleared in SAMS-E. Prior to the service the Platoon Leader (PL) will coordinate with the FSC shop office, to perform a joint TM -10/20 level PMCS. Prior to the vehicle turn-in to contractor for service all faults/deficiencies will be corrected or parts placed on order. Prior to Service: Ensure AOAP is current (If applicable). All Parts on hand for the equipment installed. Perform communications equipment PMCS Dismount communications equipment Move vehicles to FSC for service After Service: FSC tracks equipment status and contacts unit to pick up equipment upon completion. Unit turns in service packet to FSC shop office. FSC correct faults/deficiencies and requests parts as required. Section OIC/ NCOIC turns in the service packet to the SAMS-E/Shop Office for filing. (NOTE: FSC’s are responsible for maintaining a filing system for services IAW ARIMS) SAMS-E operators update service information in the SAMS-E. 5. References:

AR 750-1 – Army Materiel Maintenance Policy and Retail Maintenance Operations DA Pam 750-35 – Guide for Motor Pool Operations DA Pam 750-8 –The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) User Manual ARMY OIL ANALYSIS PROGRAM (AOAP) 1. AOAP participation is mandatory for enrolled equipment, as prescribed in AR 750-1. 2. Identify AOAP Equipment according to TB 43-0211.

3. Chapter 4 DA PAM 750-8 explains AOAP in detail. SAMS-E produces Oil Analysis Requests DA Form 5991-E. 4. Maintenance Advisory Message TACOM #05-020 changes hard time intervals, utilize this message unless equipment is under warranty. 5. At scheduled intervals, equipment owning units will obtain sampling supplies, extract samples of lubricants from enrolled equipment and submit the sample. 6. Fill out label on the sample bottle, and place your oil sample in the plastic bag. Insert it into the shipping sack or box along with your oil analysis request (DA 5991-E). 7. When the lab analyzes the sample one of two things will happen:

a. They will send you the DA Form 5991-E back stating the results are normal then file the 5991-E or, b. The lab will inform you on an oil analysis recommendation and feedback (DA Form 3254-R) of any suspected problems and indicate which actions need to be performed. (If Support maintenance is required, send a DA Form 5998-E & DD Form 3254-R to Support maintenance along with the equipment) 8. DA Form 2408-20 (Oil Analysis Log) will be maintained for each AOAP enrolled item of equipment. Unless directed locally, AOAP participants receiving and maintaining OASIS laboratory reports with data normally on the DA Form 2408-20 are not required to maintain DA Form 2408-20. 9. AOAP monitor will be appointed in writing.

CALIBRATION Purpose: To establish Test, Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) procedures for a Field Maintenance Unit. Scope: This SOP applies to all personnel assigned to a Field Maintenance Unit. 2. Mission: To provide guidance for the TMDE coordinator and Unit members.

3. TMDE Coordinator: Unit commander will appoint a unit TMDE coordinator to oversee and manage the unit TMDE. Instructions: New Items: When the hand receipt holder receives new items from the Property Book Officer (PBO) they must determine if item needs calibrated or not. To do this refer to TB 43-180. If item requires calibration, complete form DA Form 7372. Submit DA Form 7372 and item needing calibration to unit’s coordinator, which will submit to units TMDE Support Center. CNR Items: When referencing TB 43-180 it could state that calibration is not required (CNR). If that is the case then the TMDE Support Center will place a DA Label 80 on item stamped CNR. CBU Items: If hand receipt holder places TMDE items in storage, the items go to a Calibrate Before Use (CBU) status. This means that the items are preserved and receive limited care. These items do not require periodic calibration while in CBU status. Administrative storage procedures are found in the applicable TM or manufacture’s manual. Items must be in a calibrated status before placing in administrative storage. Items must meet the maintenance standard of AR 750-1 paragraph 3-1a, before placing into storage. Items must be segregated from the other TMDE items on hand receipt to avoid confusion. All items must be secured by hand receipt holder and accounted for IAW AR 710-2. Items must be inventoried either cyclic or annually. When placing an item in a CBU status, a DA Form 7372 is completed on each item and submitted to TMDE coordinator to submit to support center. When the Unit Commander and TMDE coordinator grant approval it is placed in a CBU status by support center. d. Items Due For Calibration: The TMDE Support Center will issue the unit a list of items each month that are due for calibration. This list is known as a “Projected Listing”. This is sent out around the 20th of each month for the projected items for the next month. The TMDE coordinator will review the list and notify the appropriate hand receipt holders of what items are due for calibration. The hand receipt holder brings the items to the TMDE coordinator, which issues the hand receipt holder a DA Form 7372 reflecting each item as a hand receipt for their records. The TMDE coordinator then submits the items to the support center for calibration. The support center will provide a total list of all items turned in for calibration, which serves as a hand receipt for the TMDE coordinator’s records. Lists that TMDE Support Center will provide: a. Master Listing Listing of all items that Support Center services for the unit. b. In Shop Listing Listing of all items that are at the Support Center being calibrated. c. Projected Listing Listing that the Support Center provides of items that need calibrated.

d. Delinquent Listing Listing of items that are not submitted by date needed calibrating. e. Unscheduled Calibration Some items may need to be calibrated more often that required for many different reasons. Some of the reasons could be, the item was damaged or the user suspects that the item is out of tolerance. The hand receipt holder brings the items to the TMDE coordinator, which issues the hand receipt holder a DA Form 7372 reflecting each item as a hand receipt for their records. The TMDE coordinator then submits the items to the support center for calibration. f. Delinquent Items Items that are not submitted by date needed calibrating are considered delinquent.

ANNEX H. Unit Maintenance Sustainment Training for Operators and Maintenance Personnel OPERATOR\CREW AND MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL SUSTAINMENT TRAINING 1. PURPOSE. This portion of the annex establishes the procedures for sustainment training for operator\crew and maintenance personnel. 2. GENERAL. Sustainment training is vital in the unit operator and maintenance personnel maintaining current skills as well as learning new skills. 3. OPERATOR SUSTAINMENT TRAINING. Sustainment training is periodic driver training conducted to maintain a high level of driver skill proficiency and to prevent drivers from acquiring poor driving habits. AR 600-55 states that commanders will develop and implement a sustainment training program to be conducted at least annually (every 2 years for USAR and ARNG) for any driver with a valid OF 346. a. Procedures for sustainment training for operator in this unit are as follow; a. First line supervisors will conduct an annual check ride (every 2 years for USAR and ARNG) for each driver to assess driving proficiency and identify weaknesses. Results of the check ride will be annotated on the DL Form # 3. The first line supervisor will develop a training plan for the individual based on any weaknesses noted during the check ride. Training will focus on individual weaknesses as well as other topics identified by the commander (that may be based on local seasonal conditions, mission, equipment, and so forth). b. If the first line supervisor is not licensed or is unable to perform the check ride, the commander or supervisor will ensure a qualified individual performs the check ride and assessment. c. Once the sustainment training has been completed it will be turned in to the shop office to update SAMS-E and to the unit clerk for the training can be annotated on DA Form 348, section III. d. Command Directed PMCS. Command directed PMCS will be conducted on the first Monday of each month at 0900.

Unit equipment readiness goals. For units reporting status of Army reportable equipment, the equipment readiness goal is 90 percent fully mission capable (FMC). The Army goal is to reach and sustain an FMC of 90 percent for all equipment. Other equipment readiness goals. For equipment not designated as reportable according to AR 700-138 and current AMDF, MACOMs and separate activities may set readiness goals as required. These goals will be reported locally only. Command emphasis will be placed on timely identification of logistics problems and reporting of equipment readiness deficiencies. Commanders will advise their next higher echelon of unsolved logistics and equipment readiness problems. Command budget (both consumer and stock funds) will include statements that identify and support readiness requirements. All units operating equipment listed in AR 700-138, appendix B and current AMDF, will submit their materiel condition status reports in an accurate and timely manner. With overview management at the DA level, readiness is determined by reporting the actual status of resources against established standards. Deficiencies are identified to determine the degree of mission capability (MC) and the timeframe for achieving this capability. Identified deficiencies will be corrected where possible through repair, redistribution, substitution, replenishment, or modernization within budget constraints. Responsibility for the resolution of problems extends from using units through major readiness and support commands and agencies to DA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). 2. Maintenance Control Section Responsibilities:

Identify reportable equipment (compare MTOE to AR 700-138, appendix B and current MMDF). Ensure reportable equipment is on hand or on-order (monitor requisitions). Ensure substitute or “in-lieu-of” equipment is authorized by SB 700-20 Request SAMS-E AMSS data as required for readiness reporting. Ensure all equipment data is properly enterer in the SAMS-E database. Ensure reportable equipment is identified as such in the SAMS-E database. Ensure equipment reported as “systems” are properly identified. Take aggressive corrective action for all unscheduled maintenance. Submit parts requests and closely monitor supply status until received. Monitor SAMS-2, -026 print and manage equipment vigorously. Provide data to supported unit Maintenance Officer’s\NCO’s as requested. 3. Procedures: Reporting Under the Army Materiel Status System (AMSS) All units in the battalion will report using the AMSS. The AMSS is designed to accumulate the necessary transactions at unit and support levels during the reporting period (16th day of the month to the 15th day of the following month). At the end of the report period, SAMS-E AMSS will process these transactions and produce an automated output that is equivalent to the "front side" of the current hardcopy forms. The equivalent "back side" information from the current hardcopy forms, will go through SAMS-1E and be produced by the Standard Army Maintenance System 2 (SAMS-2) which is located at the supporting materiel management center. Both of these reports, including data to the 15th of the month, will be transmitted to arrive at LOGSA not later than the first of the month following the end of the report period. The SAMS-2 DMMC submissions may be made as frequently as weekly but not less than monthly during the report period to free up valuable disk space. The last submission, which includes data to the 15th of the month, will be mailed to arrive at LOGSA not later than the first of the month following the end of the report period. The applications of the instructions in the automated system functional user procedures are mandatory. The accuracy of the information is dependent upon recording and entering into the automated system each time a transaction occurs, (that is, dispatch process, supply process, and maintenance process).

Accurate and complete entry of the data is necessary at the SAMS-E user and the SAMS-1E levels to ensure proper computation of the readiness rates. It will also ensure transmission of valid data to the SAMS-2 for completion of the” back side" inoperable equipment report. Reporting units complete the AMSS at the parent unit level (no higher than battalion). For modified table of organization and equipment (MTOE) units, the battalion is the parent unit. Reporting units, parent unit level, are responsible for an accurate accounting of their unit identification codes (UICs) to the LOGSA. Frequency of Report All units will produce a monthly AMSS report covering a 1-month period ending the 15th day of each month. This report will be run on or after the 16th of each month. The AMSS also feeds DA Form 2715-R (Unit Status Report), (AR 220-1). Active Army units will use the monthly AMSS reports as worksheets for the monthly unit status report. Disposition instructions; maintain the last six AMSS reports on-hand. Destroy locally when no longer needed. Reportable and Non-Reportable Equipment All equipment LINs listed in AR 700-138, appendix B that are authorized on the MTOE and are on-hand on the last day of the report period and on the unit property book will be reported using AMSS. CRT, OICs will ensure that reportable equipment is designated as reportable in the Maintenance Master Data File. As AR 700-138 is not changed/revised as frequently as automated files, there may be equipment designated as reportable/not reportable on the automated files that are not published in AR 700-138 until the next subsequent change or revision. Changes to reportable equipment in the automated systems will be authorized by HQDA change message to all major commands. If authorization documents are changed before modernization equipment is available for fielding, commanders will designate equipment on-hand as "in lieu of" the newly required equipment for materiel condition status reporting purpose. The “ in lieu of" policy will apply only when the equipment is in lieu of modernization equipment. The "in lieu of" equipment should be listed in SB 700-20, appendix H, as an authorized substitute. If the item is not listed in SB 700-20, it is the unit commander's responsibility to initiate the process to incorporate the "in lieu of" item. In lieu of or substitute equipment will be reported using AMSS, only if it is listed in appendix B, or has been authorized by HQDA change message to appendix B. Equipment is not reported to the national level when— The item's LIN is not in appendix B. Items that are substitutes (SB 700-20, app H) or in lieu of appendix B items WILL NOT be reported if they are NOT listed in appendix B, or have NOT been authorized reportable by HQDA. The item of equipment/system was developed, made, bought, or is being used solely for military occupational specialty (MOS) training at U.S.

Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) schools or other training centers and is not configured as it would be in a combat environment (for example, as a complete system). This equipment is typically used in a classroom setting and was not intended to be fully mission capable. The equipment may be in a constant state of disassembly/reassembly and is often subject to induced failures; therefore, it should not be reported. However, items of equipment/complete systems (appendix B) located at TRADOC schools and other training centers, which are operationally/combat configured and required to be FMC for their intended use, will be reported. The equipment is reported as part of a system. When equipment is reported as part of a system (for example, trucks and generators) reduces the number authorized and on hand by one for each reportable item used with a system. The equipment is borrowed from another unit (see AR 700-138, paragraph 2-6a). General Reporting Instructions The unit that has the equipment on its property book will report equipment that is “on-loan”. When equipment is on-loan, the borrowing unit tracks NMC time. The borrowing unit will give not mission capable supply (NMCS)/not mission capable maintenance (NMCM) data to the owning unit at the end of the report period. Equipment on a DA Form 5990-E (Maintenance Request) at a support unit/activity is reported NMC only if it has an NMC fault. It is counted FMC when the support unit/activity notifies the owning unit that the equipment has been repaired and is awaiting pick-up. Equipment that is in a depot for repair or overhaul and return stays on the unit's property book. That equipment will be reported as NMC for support maintenance. NMC equipment cannot be reported as FMC because a usable subsystem is available to be shifted among systems or end items. The actual transfer or replacement must be accomplished before the equipment can be reported FMC. Controlled exchanges can be made to keep equipment FMC. AR 750-1 tells when and how to make controlled exchanges. Commanders will make sure that this practice is not misused. Most of the items listed in AR 700-138, appendix B will be reported as separate items. However, some items are so important to combat and combat support missions that they must be reported as systems. Those items will have an asterisk by the LIN in appendix B, section I. Only the items with an asterisk will be reported as systems. All authorized subsystems in appendix B, section II, must be on-hand and FMC for the system to be FMC. Subsystems listed in appendix B, section II are considered only when they are authorized. If a subsystem required in appendix B, section II, is not authorized on the MTOE, then the system is not counted NMC for lack of subsystem. Radios are designated for specific vehicles by the MTOE and or by the

type of installation kit authorized on the MTOE. When more than one radio is authorized for a vehicle, the system is NMC when any one radio is NMC. When the MTOE or installation kit does not limit the radio(s) to a specific vehicle or type of vehicle, the commander may designate the vehicle on which the radio is to be mounted. List of Items for AMSS Report Reportable LINs in AR 700-138, appendix B have been designated missionessential equipment and systems. Models under a LIN in appendix B are reportable using AMSS only when they have an LCC of A, B, F, T, or U in SB 700-20 or in the LCC column of the FEDLOG. Equipment Category Codes (ECC) are determined from DA Pam 750-8, table B-18. The End Item Code (EIC) is a three-position equipment code for supply use. The code is put on DA Form 5990-E and supply requests for items listed in appendix B. AR 710-2, DA Pam 710-2-1, DA Pam 710-2-2, and AR 725-50 explain when and how to use the codes for supply purposes. For adding equipment to the reportable items list, see AR 700-138, paragraph 1-10. 4. References:

ANNEX K: PUBLICATIONS 1. Maintenance managers need Army Regulations (ARs), DA pamphlets (DA PAMs), field manuals (FMs) and supply catalogs (SCs) to ensure the unit

is operating per Army doctoring and federal law. 2. A publications account is established for every unit that has an active DA Form 12-R (Request for Establishment of a Publication Account) on file at the St. Louis Publications Center. The DA Form 12series is used to order publications against the unit account. 3. Section Sergeants are responsible not only for seeing that maintenance publications are used, but also getting them to the users. 4. Publications are required to be kept current in a unit. As a minimum, a field maintenance operation should have the following: -one -10 and one LO per piece of equipment with posted changes. -one TB if required for each piece of equipment -one set of -10, -20, -30 and parts manual for every three mechanics. -one set of TMs and Los for each combat repair team (CRT), field maintenance team (FMT) -one complete set of TMs, Los, FMs, TBs, SCs, and ARs for the field maintenance platoon/section headquarters. 5. Review pubs account semiannually and DA PAM 25-30 quarterly for any Updates or changes. Units can generate a list of required publications through the Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW) in the WebLIDB section. 6. Post changes promptly

If at anytime you do not have the proper reference material immediately notify the NCOIC. The NCOIC will check the publications library or go to HYPERLINK "http://www.army.mil/usapa/index.html" www.army.mil/usapa/index.html to access the required publication.

ANNEX L. Work Order Management A. Maintenance Priorities/Task Management

Maintenance Management Procedures End Item from a Supported Unit:

Operators will perform all operator maintenance, anything above operator maintenance will be work ordered for support. The supported units will prepare a DA Form 2404/ 5988E with faults identified in accordance with DA Pam 750-8. The document will be submitted to the Maintenance Control Office to initiate repair. Work requests, will be processed in accordance with the priority procedures listed in AR 750-1, paragraph 3-3. Army maintenance tasks and operations will be conducted in established maintenance mission priority sequence, based ultimately upon the mission of the requesting units and the relevance and importance of the maintenance work that must be done. Requesting unit commanders or their designated representatives will determine the appropriate maintenance priority on any work request, based upon the organizations urgency of need and urgency of need designator (UND). Once the UND has been selected, it will be used in table 3–1 to identify the correct maintenance priority designator (MPD). Table 3–2 indicates the Army maintenance turnaround time (TAT) standard (upper limit) that is associated with the customer MPD that is entered on a work order. Table 3-1 Priority designator (relating force/activity designator to urgency of need) FAD I II III IV V Urgency of need designators A B C 01 04 11 02 05 12 03 06 13 07 09 14 08 10 15

Table 3-2 Maintenance priority designator and TAT standards Priority Designator 01–03 04–08 09–15 TAT Standard 5 days 8 days 30 days

UND A will be assigned to unserviceable equipment under the following circumstances: The unit/activity is unable to perform its assigned operational mission. Materiel to be repaired is MTOE equipment that is reportable under AR 220–1 and TDA equipment that is reportable under AR 700–138 and listed on the current maintenance master data file (MMDF) received from LOGSA. The unit/activity is unable to perform assigned training missions. Repair of essential facilities of an industrial/production activity manufacturing, modifying, or maintaining mission-essential materiel is required. The materiel is an intensively managed or critical item. UND B is used in assignment of maintenance priorities for repair of materiel when— The unit/activity’s ability to perform its assigned operational mission

is impaired. Without such materiel, the unit/activity may temporarily accomplish assigned missions, but at reduced effectiveness and efficiency below the level of acceptable readiness. The materiel is equipment readiness code (ERC) A or ERC B materiel and is not reportable under AR 220–1 or AR 700–138 or listed on the current MMDF (for example, not reportable on DA Form 2406, DA Form 3266–1 (Army Missile Materiel Readiness Report), or DA Form 1352 (Army Aircraft Inventory, Status, and Flying Time). AR and ARNG TDA maintenance activities are authorized to upgrade the UND when a not mission capable (NMC) deficiency is found. Only NMC parts are requisitioned when upgraded. UND C is used in assignment of maintenance priorities for all other materiel not listed above, including ERC C materiel. Maintenance units/activities manage repair of materiel by maintenance priority designator and analysis of impact on unit readiness. The usual sequence of work will be to repair the oldest job with the highest priority first. However, analysis of unit materiel readiness may dictate resequencing maintenance work. As a general rule, an issue priority designator (IPD) used on a requisition perpetuates the maintenance priority designator assigned on DA Forms 5990–E/2407. AR 725–50 describes in detail supply priority designators. Maintenance Control Section (MCS) will sign for the end item from the supported unit. The MCS then verifies the priority designator and checks the supported units MTOE to determine the Equipment Readiness Code (ERC) of the item. This will ensure all pacing items are correctly prioritized. A work order is initiated in the SAMS-E to the inspection element or the applicable section (type of unit dependent) for initial inspection and parts determination. The work request is accepted and a copy given to the customer for receipt. A DA 3999 packet is filled with the applicable documentation i.e. DA Form 2404/5988E. Customer locks are applied to the work order. The work order status defaults to “A” status. NOTE: Units without dedicated MOS specific Inspectors will use the senior section leader to complete the inspection tasks. Upon receiving the DA Form 39994 packet from Maintenance Control, the inspection element will: Prepare a DA Form 2404 or use the existing 5988E listing all deficiencies and shortcomings on the equipment Check if other than fair wear and tear occurred Ensure all MWO’s are applied Needed repair parts will be identified and annotated on DA Form 2407 1 and included with the DA From 39994 packet for processing. Ensure the total costs are identified to ensure all work is within the maximum expenditure limits. Once accepted and the inspection completed, the DA Form 39994 packet is returned to the Maintenance Control Section to coordinate the necessary repairs. All tasks are initiated into the SAMS-E with needed parts identified for each task.

Parts are ordered from the DA 2407 1 / 5988E. When all parts are received and processed, the work order is placed in “C” status. Upon issue of the identified parts the repair section will annotate and date the work order with the mechanic identification in the “work started by” area and the work order is placed in “B’ status. Note: The unit’s inspection element will provide in progress inspections as needed. Units without dedicated MOS specific Inspectors will use the senior section leader to complete the in process inspection tasks. If additional parts are identified during repair they will be requisitioned thru the supply section and the work order is placed in the applicable status i.e. J,1 or K. Upon completion of the work order by the repair section, all pertinent forms will be annotated and returned to the Maintenance Control Section with a status change of “E’. The inspection element will perform a final inspection, they will sign and date the ”inspected by” area of the work order and place the work order in “F” status. The Maintenance Control Section will inspect the DA 3999-4 packet for completion and all forms completed IAW DA PAM 750-8. The work order is placed in “S” and then “R” status. Upon completing the closeout, the Maintenance Control Section will notify the customer that equipment is ready for pick up. B. Controlled Exchange procedures and requirements

a. General: Controlled exchange is the removal of serviceable components from unserviceable, economically reparable end items for immediate reuse in restoring a like item or weapon system to an MC condition. The unserviceable component must be used to replace the serviceable component or retained with the end item that provided the serviceable component. Purpose: To establish the procedures and requirements that are involved with the controlled exchange of parts. c. Controlled exchange is authorized only when: 1. Required components are not available from the source of supply within the IPD indicated on the maintenance request. A valid requisition is submitted to replace the unserviceable item. The maintenance effort required to restore all of the unserviceable reparable materiel involved to an MC condition is within the MAC authorization and the capability of the unit performing the controlled exchange. The end item or weapon system from which the serviceable component is

removed is classified not mission capable supply (NMCS). The end item or weapon system will not be degraded to an uneconomically reparable condition. The end item or weapon system from which the serviceable component was removed is protected from further degradation. The unserviceable component is tagged and installed on, or retained with, the end item or weapon system from which the serviceable like item was removed. In addition, the removal of the component must be recorded on DA Form 5990–E/DA Form 2407 or DA Form 5988–E/DA Form 2404, or DA Form 2408–13–3 for the end item or weapon system. This is to retain the identity and integrity of the reparable end item or weapon system. The organization performing the controlled exchange takes prompt action to restore the unserviceable materiel to an FMC condition. When the controlled exchange satisfies a requirement already in the Army supply system, that requisition will be either canceled or used to restore the unserviceable end item or weapon system to FMC. Controlled exchange by using units is authorized only when: 1. All the unserviceable reparable materiel involved is owned or under control of the organization performing the controlled exchange. It is the only means reasonably available to eliminate an adverse effect on the operational readiness of the unit, organization, or activity performing the controlled exchange. Approved by the commander of the organization performing the controlled exchange. Controlled exchange by Field level of maintenance will be authorized only when: 1. It is the only means of providing an FMC end item or weapon system to a supported unit within the time frame indicated by the IPD on the maintenance request. Approved by the Field maintenance commander, IMMO or a designated representative. During mobilization or combat, MACOM commanders may modify the controlled exchange conditions as deemed necessary. Controlled exchange is not authorized when the investigating officer has not formally released materiel involved in an accident. h. Controlled exchange is not authorized on ORF assets. C. MANHOURS

Man-Hour Accounting Man-hour Accounting Procedures Man-hour Accounting will be conducted IAW the Manpower Activity section of the SAMS-E End User Manual and AR 750-1

All Direct Support repair personnel are assigned a SAMS-1 workman’s’ number or employee number, whether working in a shop or performing administrative duties. Army Standards as referenced from AR 750-1 “MACOMs will ensure the establishment of a man-hour accounting program where automated capability exists. Man-hour accounting is optional where automation is not available and manual procedures must be used. Unit commanders are responsible for the utilization of assigned military and civilian personnel. The maintenance supervisor is directly responsible for utilization of available maintenance personnel. Appendix C (AR 750-1) provides an explanation of and instructions for calculation of man-hour utilization rates. The following are DA directed standards and goals for man-hour utilization rates: (1) The standard for utilization of assigned civilian personnel is 85 percent. (2) The standard for utilization of available military personnel is 85 percent. (3) The goal for utilization of assigned military personnel is 50 percent. There are two utilization rates that are used to measure the effective use of mechanics. The assigned utilization rate measures the percent of direct labor man-hours assigned to the unit recorded as productive man-hours. The available utilization rate measures the percent of direct labor man-hours made available to the shop office for work recorded as productive man-hours. Direct labor (productive man-hours) is work performed by assigned personnel that directly contributes to the repair of equipment. Assigned man-hour utilization rate formula is shown below: Actual Productive Man-hours x 100 Assigned DL Personnel Man-hours Available man-hour utilization rate formula is shown below: Available DL Personnel Man-hours --- Nonproductive time Available DL Personnel Man-hours x 100

Personnel Accounting Worksheets The Personnel Accounting worksheets (PCN AHN-041) and the SAMS-E Task worksheets (PCN AHN-038) will be printed prior the first day of training. On the first day of training they will be distributed to the appropriate section leaders. DATA Input The SAMS-E operator will input all direct, indirect labor, and nonproductive time into the SAMS-E computer. The Operator will print the Personnel Accounting worksheets (PCN AHN-041) and the SAMS-E Task worksheets (PCN AHN-038) as needed.

Personnel Departure The SAMS-E operator will depart personnel from the Manpower Personnel file upon departure from the unit.

ANNEX M. Equipment Classifications (ECOD/ACOD, MEL) 1. General. Equipment classifications and inspections are conducted to verify serviceability of equipment, determine the economic reparability of and item, determine the extent of the maintenance effort required to restore the item to a serviceable condition, determine if unserviceable condition was due to other than FWT, determine the ECOD (estimated cost of damages), and determine if all MWO’s (modification work orders) have been applied. 2. Purpose. This Annex is established to provide uniform guidance on the equipment inspection and classification procedures used by this unit in completing equipment classifications, determining ECOD, and applying expenditure limits.

3.

References. a. b. c. d. Army Regulation 750-1 Army Regulation 535-5 Department of the Army Pamphlet 750-8 EM 0198 Maintenance Expenditure Limits

4.

Procedures.

a. End item/component classifications. A technical inspection (TI’s) will be performed on all equipment prior to repair, evacuation, or turning of unserviceable items. TI’s will be completed by the unit inspector or the maintenance technician. Equipment inspections will be done using the TM’s for the equipment as the reference. Results of the inspections will be recorded on the DA Form 5988-E or DA Form 2404. Special attention will be given to items that would render the equipment Not Mission Capable (NMC). b. Estimated Actual Cost of Damages (ECOD) Procedures. When the inspector finds damage to the equipment that appears to be other than Fair Wear and Tear (FWT) this damage will be documented on DA Form 5988-E or DA Form 2404. The inspector will make a short statement on the form as to why they believe the damage was other than FWT. When an owning unit suspects damage that is other than FWT a work order will be initiated stating ECOD. After the initial inspection is completed suggesting other than FWT the DA Form 5988-E or DA Form 2404 will be sent to the supported unit’s battalion commander to determine if action is required under the provisions of AR 735-5. Once a response is received back from the supported unit’s battalion commander work or turn-in procedures may begin on the equipment. When the TI supports an investigation and accurate costs can not be determined the inspector will prepare an ECOD in accordance with AR 735-5. c. Verification Inspections. A verification inspection is required any time an end item inspection results in a classification code of H or P. The verification inspection will NOT be done by the individual who did the initial classification inspection. The person performing the verification inspection should be technically competent to inspect the equipment. The person performing the verification inspection will annotate the original inspection with the following information; - organization of the inspector - inspector name and grade - date of inspection\verification - signature of the inspector Major end items that fail a verification inspection will be referred to the shop officer with the corrected classification. The shop officer will determine what further action will be taken. d. Maintenance Expenditure Limit is the total acceptable one-time cost to repair an end item to a fully serviceable condition per the TM. It will be the responsibility of the inspectors to know the MEL of all items they are doing initial inspections on. The inspector will also be responsible for ensuring that maintenance expenditure limits are not exceeded for any piece of equipment that is work ordered to the unit. Information of determining MEL can be obtained from EM 0198, TB 430002-series, and TB 750-series. Jobs will not be divided to avoid MEL

requirements. Commanders may request a one time waiver for MEL to a specific model or serial numbered item. If this is requested the inspectors will assist the commander in determining that a replacement is not available by the RDD, resources are available to make the repairs locally, that a cost estimate and justification are submitted through channels, and that the request will not exceed the MEL ceiling waiver. Items that will not be included in the cost for MEL will be BII items, MWO application, the cost for accessory items, and costs associated with scheduled services.

ANNEX N. Battlefield Damage Assessment and Repair/Recovery (BDAR/R) 1. General: Battle Damage Assessment and Repair (BDAR) are the procedures used from crew through field level maintenance to rapidly restore vehicles and other pieces of equipment that have been damaged either in battle or by accident to a combat-ready condition capable of continuing the mission. 2. Purpose: To establish the policies and procedures to be used by crews and maintainers when applying BDAR. This SOP also sets out sustainment training requirements to ensure our operators and maintainers are adequately prepared to carry out BDAR. 3. a. 4. References: AR 750-1 b. FM 4-30.31 Procedures: The following procedures are to be used when

performing BDAR. BDAR will be addressed in the logistics section of the OPORD or FRAGO. Information required will include at what risk level operators, crews and maintainers can apply BDAR. Depending on the METT-TC, BDAR may need to be liberally applied at the discretion of the commander. The OPORD or FRAGO should clearly delineate that responsibility. Rules of assessment for BDAR. Think safety first. Personnel must consider live or loaded ammo, fuel\oil spills and electrical cables and wiring before applying BDAR. Perform an assessment. The senior individual present will determine if BDAR is to be performed during combat. Do not attempt to operate the system or subsystems until the initial assessment is done to prevent further damage. The crew will do the initial assessment using the assessment form in this Annex. Maintenance procedures for BDAR. Once the crew has completed the assessment and it is determined that maintenance support will be required the MCS will determine the closest maintenance support capable of supporting the BDAR. The MCS will then dispatch the FMT or contact team to the BDAR location. When practical the FMT or contact team will take a like vehicle or larger to facilitate recovery if BDAR efforts are ineffective. Recording BDAR. DD Form 1577 will be used to mark BDAR repairs that have been made. Locate the tag as close to the repair as possible. Also place a tag in the cab or crew compartment listing the BDAR repair. This will allow for the mechanic to easily recognize BDAR repairs. Also record the BDAR repair on the DA 2404\DA 5988-E in accordance with DA Pam 750-8 until permanent repairs can be made. 5. BDAR kits. There are two primary types of BDAR kits. One is the Crew\Operator Kit (5180-01-502-9504). /This kit is designed primarily for equipment that is operated by a crew of more than one. The other kit is the Maintainer Kit (5180-01-502-9507). This kit is designed for use by FMT’s and contact teams. Each FMT will be issued and maintain this type of kit. The FMT’s will not deploy forward without taking the kits. The kit will also be issued to the Service\Recovery section. The Service\Recovery section will take the kit on all recovery missions. The FMT’s and Service\Recovery Sections will be responsible for replenishment of these kits. Extra copies of DD Form 1577, DA Form 2404’s, and the assessment forms will be maintained with the kits. 6. BDAR training. Sustainment training is key to unit personnel being able to perform BDAR. Operator BDAR will be scheduled by the MCO for all unit operators and all supported unit operator. Sustainment training for operator will consist of high pay-off task found in FM 430.31. Maintainer sustainment training will be scheduled and conducted for all maintainer in the FSC. The sustainment training will be scheduled and conducted annually by the maintenance platoon leader. FM 4-30.31 should be consulted for high pay-off, low-risk tasks.

Assists and advises the supply technician in developing/establishing policy, procedures and priorities for shop supply operations. Responsible for day-to-day management, supervision and coordination of sections within the Shop Supply to ensure mission accomplishment. Ensures procedures/standards set forth in this Shop Supply sop are met. Concept of Operations General: The Shop Supply Section is designed to give rotational unit supply soldiers an opportunity to train along side their maintenance peers. Rotational units 92As trains in a real-time shop supply system, with a “live” SAMS-E system, and real document register. Soldiers will store, receive, issue and manage Class IX stocks. Soldiers will interface with their customers (on the maintenance floor) and with their higher source of supply (the supporting Class IX warehouse.) The following are some of the responsibilities of the shop office; Initiate signature cards (DA Form 1687) with the FSC SSA, include Commanders Assumption of Command Orders. Also send one (CIIC DA FORM 1687) for control inventory item code pick-up or tun-in. Shop Supply Staff will verify all signature cards prior to passing to the SSA. At a minimum, it is recommended the following rotational unit personnel be delegated the authority to receipt Class IX supplies: Shop Supply Officer (or Technician) Shop Supply NCOIC All Shop Supply Clerks The MHE Operator Provide licensed operator(s) for forklift. No other rotational unit personnel will operate the forklift during the training rotation. Daily Standards: The following will be accomplished prior to COB daily. All picking tickets generated will be pulled, initialed and filed. Maintain picking ticket files for 60 calendar days. All posted receipts will be placed into location. Inspect each item for possible damage before placing it into location. Avoid overflow locations – moves the entire quantity to a new shelf or drawer if

necessary. All location changes or adds posted (with bin labels created). All shop stock denials posted. Necessary warehouse maintenance performed, including trash out, floors swept and general cleaning performed. Monthly Standards: The following will be accomplished monthly (except for the month of December): 100% SSL Location Survey 100% SSL Inventory 25% BSL Location Survey and Review SAMS-E Operation The FSC uses the Standard Army Maintenance System Level 1 (SAMS-E) in the shop operations. SAMS-E is a user friendly, interactive computer system to track supply maintenance, man-hour and cost data for the Army. The SAMS-E system used at to track equipment, orders parts, and obligate Army funds. System administration and security is a sensitive issue. SAMS-E is for STAMIS operations only, further access is not authorized. The following are actions not authorized by SAMS-E users: Hacking on the system Using the SAMS-E system to attempt Internet access Changing desktop configuration Attempt to change printers, network drives, or any systems settings Changing or addition of Task numbers without Staff approval The SAMS-E systems administrator is the Supply Systems Technician. will monitor all SAMS-E use and supervise systems maintenance. The Maintenance Control NCO acts as the deputy systems administrator. Input and output disks are processed IAW the SAMS-E manual. disks are processed in date/time order: oldest to newest. He

All input

Supply diskettes are delivered Staff Supply NCOIC daily. During rotations, the final daily supply disk is due to Staff Supply NCOIC prior to 1500 hours. The Supply Requisitioning Report will be prepared in two copies: one for the unit MCO and one to Supply NCOIC, which is filed for one year. Shop Supply Staff will review all supply diskettes and output reports prior to sending thru IMAP. NMTC Staff will check for unusual items or quantities being ordered and proper fund codes. NMTC Staff will perform diskette editing as required. PARTS REQUISTIONING All requests for parts have a “priority designator” that expresses the importance of a supply request. Parts are orded under the priority designated by the opened work order. The 2407-1 is brought to the Supply Section. Prior to ordering, any single item over $500.00 will be verified and intialed by Staff MCO or MCS.

Prior to ordering, all parts will be checked against the shop supply listing. Supply will “add complete” all parts to the appropriate work order and task to ensure parts and cost accuracy. The request is entered into the SAMS-E, IAW the SAMS-E End User Manual. Section 5.4 If the item is on shop stock, a picking ticket will be printed. The Item will be pulled from stockage location and placed in the work order location. The Picking ticket will be initialed and filed. If the item is on bench stock, a Bench Stock Listing (BSL) ticket will be printed. The BSL ticket will be placed in the work order packet, and part will be pulled by the mechanic when needed, from the Bench Stock (BS) location. After the part is ordered, the Supply clerk will initial on the 2407 next to the NSN. When all items on the DA 2407 have been ordered, a new 2407 will be printed and only page 3 will be kept, a copy of page 3 will be filed in the supply area , and a copy will go back with the packet. Mechanics will use this copy to draw parts. If the item is needed due to work stoppage, and if satisfied will result in completion of job, a high priority walk-thru will be processed IAW SAMS-E End User Manual. Section 5.4.4. Materiel Release Denials Partial Denials (When only parts of the supplies are available for issue.) Search the surrounding area and all overflow locations. On the picking ticket, write the words “QUANTITY DENIED” and the number/UI denied. Pass pick-ticket to NMTC staff for handling. Causative research will be conducted at the discretion of the Supply Operations Officer. Delete quantity denied from the work order detail report. Issue the available quantity to the work order. Initiate a “special inventory”. After inventory is completed, reorder part (as required.) Complete Denials (When none of the supplies are available for issue.) Search the surrounding area and all overflow locations. On the picking ticket, write the words “COMPLETE DENIAL.” Pass picking ticket to NMTC staff for handling. Causative research will be conducted at the discretion of the Supply Operations Officer. Delete quantity denied from the work order detail report. Initiate a “special inventory”. After inventory is completed, reorder part (as required.) Shop Stock And Bench Stock Replenishments Shop stock replenishments will be done manually on an as needed basis. Bench stock replenishments are accomplished thru a manual review of storage locations with the BSL Review List by the section. Local purchases and contracted items/services will be performed IAW this SOP. Local Purchases The use of the IMPAC card to purchase services, supplies and repair parts are authorized to prevent work stoppage. Restrictions are as follows: The FM Maintenance Control Officer approval and signature on NMTC-DS Local Purchase Form (NMTC supply form 2) is required prior to order(s)

of repair parts. The only person authorized to inquire about costs, is the credit card holders. Single purchases must remain under $2500.00. Splitting purchases to stay under the $2500.00 limit is not authorized. All local purchases will be posted to the work order prior to use of the part or service. Use the Add- Supplemental process in SAMS-E to add the items to the work order. On items with a valid NSN, create a demand history record (DHAs). Contracted purchases: Initiated when the entire requirement cost is greater than $2500.00 (single purchase limit for the IMPAC card). Create a DD Form 1348-6 manually, in 6 parts. On the top copy write “urgent”. Use a document serial number of 9XXX. Place one copy in the suspense file. Have the Supply Systems Technician or MATO sign the back of the form. Take the completed form to the USPFO, Camp Dodge (LOG Section). Log Section sends the DD Form 1348-6 to the commodity manager. The commodity manager will perform appropriate research and send the item to Purchasing and Contracting Section for the bidding process. Once the bidding process is completed and approved, the form is sent back to the commodity manager. The commodity manager will then call the NMTC Budget Manager, for funding approval. The form then goes back to the Purchasing and Contracting Section to purchase the item or service. After receipt of the item or service, Shop Supply Staff will sign the contract. File one copy with the suspense 1348-6, forward one copy back to USPFO (ATTN: Contracting). Ensure that the document number is posted to the DCR and any appropriate work order. NOTE: It is unlawful to accept an item or service that requires contracting approval before the bid process is complete Receipts Processing The Shop Supply Section is responsible for receiving supplies. The sources of materiel received are excess returns from lanes, receipts for replenishment and work orders (from the SSA, wholesale and direct ship from DLA vendors) and receipts from local purchase vendors and contractors. The unit commander or designated representative will receipt for Class IX supplies for their unit and the Shop Supply Activity. This authority may be delegated on a DA Form 1687 with a copy of the Assumption of Command orders. At a minimum, it is recommended the following rotational unit personnel be delegated the authority to receipt Class IX supplies: Shop Supply Officer Shop Supply NCOIC All Shop Supply Clerks The MHE Operator

All receipt documentation will be processed into the SAMS-E system within one day after receipt of the items. All items will be placed into location or into a work order bin after receipt processing. All receipts will be processed IAW the SAMS-E End User Manual, Section 6.1. Supplies received will be counted by quantity and compared to the receipt document. The Shop MCS is notified immediately if a discrepancy in stock number or quality is found. After a discrepancy is verified, the rotational unit will initiate a supply/quality Discrepancy report (SDR or QDR) action and place the item into Litigation Storage. All items will be placed into location or into a work order bin after receipt processing. If the receipted quantity does not match the quantity due in, the receipt is processed for the actual quantity received. If the actual amount received is less than the due in quantity, do not enter a “Y” in the SEND D6S block on the SAMS-E screen. When materiel arrives without documentation, the following steps will be used to recreate documentation: Identify the item’s NSN. Check for NSN or part number. Cross-reference part number to NSN if necessary. Ask for technical assistance from Maintenance Staff if necessary. Check the document register for dues-in for that stock number. Check any/all shipping documentation for clues or Transportation Control Number (TCN). Ask the higher source of supply for research in checking their activity records. Recreate the 1348-1 on a manual form. Process receipt as normal. Non-requisitioned receipts are receipts from local purchase, cannibalization are processed as follows: Local Purchase: The Shop Officer will approve all local purchase receipts. Cannibalization: All cannibalized items will be receipted using the “Add Supplemental” SAMS-E function. Storage Procedures All supplies will be stored promptly and accurately. Storage areas will be maintained and safeguarded appropriately. Enforce a “clean as you go” plan to keep all areas neat and orderly. Storing Items/Picking Tickets The Storage Supervisor will ensure that sections of the storage area are assigned to specific personnel for pulling picking tickets, storing items and warehouse maintenance. The Storage Section soldiers will place all stock into identified locations daily, to include items awaiting new locations. Items in Litigation (awaiting SDR/QDR disposition) will be placed on “non-conforming parts” shelves, not regular storage locations. Picking tickets will be pulled and initialed/dated by the person who pulled the item. Place the item in a work order parts bin or issue

directly to the customer (See issue of repair parts). Practice “clean as you go” to simplify monthly location surveys and inventories. Issue of Repair Parts Repair parts will be issued to the team chief. A joint inventory based on the work order detail will be conducted. Note discrepancies and inform Shop Supply Staff. Issued parts will be signed for by the sections on the corresponding Form 2407, that is on file in the Supply Section. This is documentation of issuance. The team chief will sign in the initials block of the 2407. If a part for an active work order is a denial, perform the following steps: Research denial for no more than one hour. Soldiers on the floor do not have time to wait for us to search for parts. If, after one hour, the part cannot be located, continue to check the SSA and/or local purchase. If item still cannot be located, see if Hi-pri walk-thru can be done, if not reorder thru SAMS-E. Bench stock issue procedures The Shop Supply Section is responsible for the issue of the “common” bench stock and maintenance of the area. Items issued directly from the common bench stock area will be documented on the DA Form 2407-E form and turned into shop supply before completion of the job. Supply will “Add Supplemental” all parts to the appropriate work order to ensure parts and cost accuracy. Special Procedures Only the Maintenance Control Officer is authorized to “control exchange” parts from non-active work orders or split open serviceable parts kits for a subcomponent. “Borrowing” from another work order will be coordinated between supply and maintenance Staff. However, no parts may be taken until the needed part is on order. If a parts kit (i.e. gasket kit) contains a needed part, the entire kit will be ordered using normal procedures – it will be posted to the work order detail. CONTROLLED EXCHANGE Controlled exchange is the removal of serviceable components from unserviceable, economically reparable end items for immediate reuse in restoring a like item or weapon system to an MC condition. The unserviceable component must be used to replace the serviceable component or retained with the end item that provided the serviceable component. Controlled exchange is authorized only when—

Required components are not available from the source of supply within the IPD indicated on the maintenance request. A valid requisition is submitted to replace the unserviceable item. The maintenance effort required to restore all of the unserviceable repairable materiel involved to an MC condition is within the MAC authorization and the capability of the unit performing the controlled exchange. The end item or weapon system from which the serviceable component is removed is classified not mission capable supply (NMCS). Aircraft from which a serviceable component is removed must be classified as one of the following: NMCS, not mission capable maintenance, or partially mission capable (PMC). Aircraft maintenance manual instructions require that a known serviceable component be temporarily used while troubleshooting. Such components may be temporarily exchanged from an FMC or PMC aircraft. The end item or weapon system will not be degraded to an uneconomically reparable condition. The end item or weapon system from which the serviceable component was removed is protected from further degradation. The unserviceable component is tagged and installed on, or retained with, the end item or weapon system from which the serviceable like item was removed. In addition, the removal of the component must be recorded on DA Form 5990–E/DA Form 2407 or DA Form 5988–E/DA Form 2404, or DA Form 2408–13–3 for the end item or weapon system. This is to retain the identity and integrity of the reparable end item or weapon system. The organization performing the controlled exchange takes prompt action to restore the unserviceable materiel to an FMC condition. When the controlled exchange satisfies a requirement already in the Army supply system, that requisition will be either canceled or used to restore the unserviceable end item or weapon system to FMC. Controlled exchange by using units is authorized only when— All the unserviceable reparable materiel involved is owned or under control of the organization performing the controlled exchange. It is the only means reasonably available to eliminate an adverse effect on the operational readiness of the unit, organization, or activity performing the controlled exchange. Approved by the commander of the organization performing the controlled exchange. Controlled exchange will be authorized only when— It is the only means of providing an FMC end item or weapon system to a supported unit within the time frame indicated by the IPD on the maintenance request. Approved by the commander or a designated representative. During mobilization or combat, MACOM commanders may modify the controlled exchange conditions as deemed necessary. Controlled exchange is not authorized when the investigating officer has not formally released materiel involved in an accident. Controlled exchange is not authorized on ORF assets. Control exchange documents and a controlled exchange log will be

maintained in accordance with AR 25–400–2. Documentation will be filed in accordance with the record retention schedule located at ttps://www.arims.army.mil. Controlled Canabilization Cannibalization is the authorized removal of components from materiel designated for disposal. Cannibalization supplements supply operations by providing assets not immediately available through the Army supply system. Costs to cannibalize, urgency of need, and degradation to resale value of the end item should be considered in the determination to cannibalize. Materiel awaiting disposition instructions from an NICP will not be cannibalized without prior approval of the owning NICP. Policies and procedures for establishment and operation of cannibalization points are contained in AR 710–2 and DA Pam 710–2–2. Cannibalization Point procedures: Documentation to be completed IAW with Shop Supply SOP. Section Supervisor will coordinate through the Base Automotive Staff to obtain part from the cannibalization point. The unit must provide soldiers, tools and applicable technical manuals. The section supervisor will ensure that DA Form 2765-1 is complete. Turn-in/D6Z There are two different types of turn-ins, Recoverable and Excess. Make sure you know which one is needed for each item, also do not confuse a Turn-in for a part that is to be returned to its work order location. Before coming to supply: Item needing to be turned in will be cleaned and drained ( nothing leaking from it, to include water) Item will be inspected by an inspector and tagged with proper serviceability tag (i.e. DD Form 1574, 1577-1, 1577-2.). If the item is recoverable the WORK ORDER NUMBER and TASK NUMBER will be written on serviceability tag. If the item is excess the tag should have “EXCESS” A Fed log sheet and a drainage statement will also be attached to the item. Serviceability tag will be stamped and initialed by staff from that section. The item is then brought to the shop supply section. After coming to shop supply Supply personnel will inspect item, to be sure it is cleaned and drained and proper documentation is filled out correctly. Item will be placed in turn-in area. D6Z will be done IAW SAMS-E End User Manual. A signed copy of the D6Z will be given to Staff supply personnel and will be filed. Report Disposition Reports will be filed and retained as listed below:

SSL Audit Listing Destroy after 1 Year SARSS Customer Recon Keep 2 latest lists on file Approved BSL Approve Quarterly, file for 1 year Approved SSL Approve Quarterly, file for 1 year Daily Status Error List Destroy after 1 year Daily Supply Requirements Destroy after 1 year SSL/WO Issue Candidate List Destroy after 30 days Supply Discrepancy Reports If completed, destroy after 2 years Quality Deficiency Reports If completed, destroy after 2 years Picking Tickets Bundle by day, destroy after 60 days Receipts Bundle by day, destroy after 60 days. All other reports will be destroyed when the new listing is received. Reports will be run in accordance with the SAMS-E End Users Manual Inventories Inventories are conducted to find storage problems, find the total quantity on hand and to compare and adjust recorded on-hand balances. After the location survey, an inventory of a line or lines may be conducted. Inventories are one of three types: Scheduled Wall to Wall Scheduled Cyclic Special Inventory (completed for warehouse denial, errors found in location survey, evidence of a forced or unauthorized entry or command directed.) Inventory Steps: The following are steps to complete the Supply inventory. Conduct the Location Survey. Assign two-man count teams and supervisor. Establish cutoff dates for posting transactions. Train inventory team. Perform the count. Compare the count to recorded balances. Perform causative research at the direction of the Supply Operations Officer. Post the counted balance. Location Surveys Our storage facility receives, stores, and issues hundreds of items of all shapes and sizes. These items must be stored in specific places so they can be located quickly and easily when they are issued. The system used to store and locate supplies is called a stock locator system. We use a 5-character locator system. To confirm the location, serviceability and identity of items on the shelf, we do location surveys. A location survey is a physical check of actual storage locations against the recorded location on the SAMS-E Shop Stock and Bench Stock Files. Surveys will be conducted with the frequency shown in paragraph 9-3. All items inventoried will be surveyed prior to conducting inventory

counts. During daily operations, it is often necessary to change locations. When changing locations in SAMS-E, be sure to post the change to the system and correct the storage locator bin labels. Materials needed for a location survey includes box cutters, markers, bin labels and the appropriate location survey report from SAMS-E. Location survey teams consist of two soldiers: one to call out locations from the storage locator list and the other to confirm the location. During the location survey, you need to confirm the following: All supplies are properly identified and clearly marked. All supplies in the location are the item intended for the location. All items not to be counted are clearly marked “Do Not Count.” All supplies are stored in the least number of locations. (Reduce overflow if possible.) All supplies are stored neatly and uniformly to simplify counting. Shelves are free of trash, dirt and debris. Placards/bin labels are straight and readable. Some problems that may be encountered and their solutions Mixed Stock – two or more items in one location. Leave the correct item in the location, set the other aside for later research. Continue location survey. Questionable condition of items in location. Damaged items that need to be technically inspected to find out if they are unserviceable. Questionable identity of item in location. Research item by NSN or part number on FEDLOG to identify item. If item does not belong in location, see #1. Unclear markings on containers or labels. Open container to confirm identity of items. Remark/label the container. Reseal container, if appropriate. Improper stacking of boxes – not neat and uniform. Improper stacking can hide items, damage containers and cause unsafe conditions. Restock boxes properly. Multiple open boxes. This causes inventory error, miscounts and improper quantities issued because boxes can have items missing. Completely fill boxes, seal and mark quantity on the outside. There should only be one open box at a time. SARSS-1 / Customer Reconciliation procedures The purpose of customer reconciliation (recon) is to validate open and closed requisitions with your source of supply. The SARSS-1 Customer Recon Report is the PCN AJT-028. To perform the Recon Process, you must have the following reports printed: PCN AJT-028 SARSS-1 Customer Reconciliation PCN AHN-008 SAMS-E Open Document Register PCN AHN-009 SAMS-E Closed Document Register PCN AHN-010 SAMS-E Closed (Purged) Document Register Procedures Open Documents: Compare open documents on the AHN-008 to the AJT-028. DGAs: This shows the item is still due out against a due-in to the

SSA. If the item is still needed, write an “X” on the AJT-028. If the item is no longer required, write “C” on the 028 Report next to the entry. Do not list this item as received – it has not been released for issue as of the cut off date for this report. DFAs: This shows the item is still due in from higher than your SSA, and will come as a dedicated shipment to you. If you still need the item, write an “X” on the AJT-028. If the item is no longer required, write “C” on the AJT-028 Report next to the entry. Note – if the item is in shipment status, an AC1 will not be able to cancel the inbound item. D6S/A5As: This shows the item was a DGA released for issue. If you have received the item and the quantity shown, write an “R” on the AJT028. If you have not received the item, submit a memorandum requesting the SSA show proof of issue. Write “NOT REC” on the 028 Report. A “NOT REC” entry is considered unmatched. AC1/AE1s: This shows the document was cancelled. Write “C” on the AJT028 Report next to the entry. Consider any documents you need to cancel with off-line status unmatched. Closed Documents: Compare remainder of documents on the AJT-028 report to your AHN-009 and AHN-010 reports. Remaining documents do not have an “X” next to them. DFAs /DGAs: If the record on your DCR is closed, the SSA failed to close the document. Write “R” on the 028 Report next to the entry. The document is considered unmatched. D6S/A5As: This indicates the item was released for issue. The item on your DCR should have a receipt posted to close the record. If your DCR agrees, write an “X” next to the document. Watch for multiple entries indicating partial issues. Quantity mismatches or an open record on the DCR is considered a mismatch. AC1/AE1s: This indicates the document was cancelled. If your DCR agrees, write an “X” next to the document. When your DCR does not reflect the cancellation, post the status using “off-line” status and consider the record a mismatch. Remaining Open Documents: After you have completed the reconciliation process, you may have some open documents on your SAMS-E AJT-008 Open Document Register. If the documents are dated before the reconciliation cut-off date, close them with the “off-line” status process, and status code “BF.” These count as reconciliation mismatches. If the documents on the Open Document Register are past the recon cutoff date, take no action, and do not count them in calculations. Supply Deficiency Reporting: (1) Operator / organizational level: Units submit SDRs to report a damage, shortage, overage, missing, or receipt of a wrong item(s) IAW AR 735-11-2 for detailed instructions. (a) Receiving activities submit SF 364 within 15 calendar days for government activities (on post). For commercial sources (off post), submit within 45 days. (b) When an action activity does not reply to a SDR within the

prescribed time frames, the reporting activity will follow-up by sending a copy of the original SDR. Refer to AR 735-11-2 for detailed instructions.
