MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART
Section I. INTRODUCTION
This section provides a general explanation
of all maintenance and repair functions
authorized at various maintenance levels.
Section II designates overall responsibility
for the performance of maintenance
functions on the identified end item or
component. The implementation of the
maintenance functions upon the end item
or component will be consistent with the
assigned maintenance functions.
Section III lists the special tools and test
equipment required for each maintenance
function as referenced from Section II.
Section IV contains supplemental
instructions or explanatory notes for a
particular maintenance function. (Not
MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS. Maintenance
functions are defined as follows:
Inspect. To determine the serviceability of an
item by comparing its physical, mechanical and/or
electrical characteristics with established standards
Test. To verify serviceability and detect incipient
failure by measuring the mechanical or electrical
characteristics of an item and comparing those
characteristics with prescribed standards.
Service. Operations required periodically to
keep an item in proper operating condition, i.e., to clean,
to preserve, to drain, to paint, or to replenish fuel,
lubricants, hydraulic fluids, or compressed air supplies.
Adjust. To maintain, within prescribed
limits, by bringing into proper or exact position, or by
setting the operating characteristics to specified
Align. To adjust specified variable elements of
an item to bring about optimum or desired performance.
Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections
to be made, or to be adjusted on instruments for test,
measuring and diagnostic equipment used in precision
measurement. Consists of comparisons of two
instruments, one of which is a certified standard of
known accuracy, to detect and adjust any discrepancy in
the accuracy of the instrument being compared.
Install. The act of emplacing, seating, or fixing
into position an item, part, or module in a manner to
allow the proper functioning of an equipment or system.
Replace. The act of substituting a serviceable
like part, subassembly, or module for an unserviceable
Repair. The application of maintenance services
(inspect, test service, adjust, align, calibrate, or replace)
or other maintenance actions (welding, grinding, riveting,
straightening, facing, remachining, or resurfacing) to
restore serviceability to an item by correcting specific
damage, fault, malfunction, or failure in a part,
subassembly, module, end item or system.
Overhaul. That maintenance effort
(service/actions) necessary to restore an item to a
completely serviceable operational condition prescribed
by maintenance standards (i.e., DMWR) 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
