MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS (Contd)
To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be
adjusted on instruments or test, measuring, and diagnostic equipments 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.
To remove and install the same item when required to
perform service or other maintenance functions.
Install may be the act of
emplacing, seating, or fixing into position a spare, repair part, or module
(component or assembly) in a manner to allow the proper functioning of an
equipment or system.
To remove an unserviceable item and install a serviceable
counterpart in its place.
Replace is authorized by the MAC and is shown
as the 3rd position code of the SMR code.
To apply maintenance services, including fault location/
and disassembly/assembly procedures,
and maintenance actions to identify troubles and restore serviceability to
an item by correcting specific damage, fault, malfunction, or failure in a
part, subassembly, module (component or assembly), end item, or system.
To perform 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 (i.e., DMWR).
Overhaul is normally the highest degree of
maintenance performed by the Army.
Overhaul does not normally return an
item to like-new condition.
To perform 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.
operation includes the act of returning to zero those age measurements
(hours/miles, etc.) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.
