of a work time figure in the appropriate subcolumn(s), the category of mainte-
nance authorized to perform the function that maintenance function at the
indicated category of maintenance.
If the number or complexity of task within
a listed maintenance function vary at different maintenance categories, appro-
priate work time figures will be shown for each category.
The work time
figure represents the average time required to restore an item (assembly,
subassembly, component, module, end item, or system) to a serviceable condi-
tion under typical field operating conditions.
This time includes preparation
time (including any necessary disassembly/assembly time, troubleshooting/fault
location time, and quality assurance/quality control time) in addition to the
time required to perform the specific tasks identified for the maintenance
functions authorized in the maintenance allocation chart.
