MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS. - continued
Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be adjusted on instruments or 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
Remove/install. 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.
Replace. To remove an unserviceable item and install a serviceable counterpart in its place. "Replace" is
authorized by the MAC and assigned maintenance level is shown as the 3rd position code of the SMR code.
removal/installation, and disassembly/assembly3 procedures, and maintenance actions4 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.
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 (i.e., DMWR). Overhaul
is normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul does not normally return an item to like
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 material
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, SECTION II.
Column 1. Group Number. Column 1 lists functional group code numbers, 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 names of components, assemblies,
subassemblies, and modules for which maintenance is authorized.
Column 3. Maintenance Functions. Column 3 lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in column
2. (For detailed explanation of these functions, see paragraph B-2.)
1Services - Inspect, test, service, adjust, align, calibrate, and/or replace.
2Fault 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 (UUT).
3Disassembly/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 (e.g.,
identified as maintenance significant).
4Actions - Welding, grinding, riveting, straightening, facing, machining, and/or resurfacing.
