DIRECT UNIT MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS.
DIRECT UNIT MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS
Maintenance is a command responsibility! Commanders, supervisors and leaders are responsible for continually evaluating their unit or activity maintenance operations to determine which areas of operation require improvement, to ensure their units are kept at the highest possible
state of readiness.
TASK: Understand the requirements for directing unit maintenance operations.
CONDITION: In a classroom environment, given access to AR 750-1, DA PAM 738-750, DA PAM 750-35 AR 220-1, AR 385-10, AR 700-138, DA PAM 750-1 and FM 4-30.3.
NOTE: The MAC Chart is found in Appendix B of the 20 level TM. It provides what tasks are authorized to be performed at each level of maintenance for a given piece of equipment.
NOTE: DS Maintenance is the first place in which it is determined whether damage to equipment is the result of “Fair Wear and Tear” (FWT). If damage is determined to be thru other than FWT, an Estimated Cost of Damage (ECOD) will be provided to the owning unit. The owning unit then makes a determination of whether or not negligence or willful misconduct is involved, and takes appropriate action IAW AR 735-5 before DS maintenance can proceed.
