MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS CONTINUED
N OT E
The following definitions are applicable to the "repair" maintenance function:
Services. Inspect, test, service, adjust, align, calibrate, and/or replace.
Fault location/troubleshooting. The process of investigating and detecting the cause of
equipment malfunctioning; the act of isolating a fault within a system or Unit Under Test
Disassembly/assembly. The step-by-step breakdown (taking apart) of a spare/functional
group coded item to the level of its least component, that is assigned an SMR code for the
level of maintenance under consideration (i.e., identified as maintenance significant).
Actions. Welding, grinding, riveting, straightening, facing, machining, and/or resurfacing.
11. Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely serviceable/
operational condition as required by maintenance standards in appropriate technical publications. Overhaul is
normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul does not normally return an
item to like new condition.
12. Rebuild. Consists of those services/actions necessary for the restoration of unserviceable equipment to a like
new condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest degree of materiel
maintenance applied to Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of returning to zero those age
measurements (e.g., hours/miles) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.
EXPLANATION OF COLUMNS IN THE MAC
Column (1) LCN. Column (1) lists Logistic Control Numbers (LCN), the purpose of which is to identify
maintenance significant components, assemblies, subassemblies, and modules with the Next Higher Assembly
Column (2) Component/Assembly. Column (2) contains the item names of components, assemblies,
subassemblies, and modules for which maintenance is authorized.
Column (3) Maintenance Function. Column (3) lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in column
(2). (For a detailed explanation of these functions refer to "Maintenance Functions" outlined above).
Column (4) Maintenance Level. Column (4) specifies each level of maintenance authorized to perform each
function listed in column (3), by indicating work time required (expressed as manhours in whole hours or decimals)
in the appropriate subcolumn. This work time figure represents the active time required to perform that
maintenance function at the indicated level of maintenance. If the number or complexity of the tasks within the
listed maintenance function varies at different maintenance levels, appropriate work time figures are to be shown
for each level. The work time figure represents the average time required to restore an item (assembly,
subassembly, component, module, end item, or system) to a serviceable condition under typical field operating
conditions. This time includes preparation time (including any necessary disassembly/assembly time),
troubleshooting/fault location time, and quality assurance time in addition to the time required to perform the
specific tasks identified for the maintenance functions authorized in the MAC. The symbol designations for the
various maintenance levels are as follows:
C - Crew Maintenance
F - Maintainer
