B-2. MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS - CONTINUED.
Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely service
able/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.
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 materiel
maintenance applied to Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of returning to zero those age
measurements (hours/miles, etc.) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.
B-3. 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.
End item group number shall be "00."
Column 2, Component/Assembly. Column 2 contains the names of components, assemblies,
subassemblies, and modules for which maintenance is authorized.
Column 3, Maintenance Function. Column 3 lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in Column
2. (For a detailed explanation of these functions, see paragraph C-2.)
Column 4, Maintenance Level. Column 4 specifies, by the listing of a work time figure in the appropriate
subcolumn(s), the level of maintenance authorized to perform the function listed in Column 3. This figure represents the
active time required to perform that maintenance function at the indicated level of maintenance. If the number or
complexity of the tasks within the listed maintenance function vary at different maintenance levels, appropriate work time
figures will be shown for each level. The work time figure represents the average time required to restore an item
(assembly, subassembly, component, module, end item, or system) to a serviceable condition 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.
The symbol designations for the various maintenance levels are as follows:
Operator or Crew
Direct Support Maintenance
General Support Maintenance
Column 5, Tools and Equipment. Column 5 specifies, by code, those common tool sets (not individual
tools) and special tools, TMDE, and support equipment required to perform the designated function.
Column 6, Remarks. This column shall, when applicable, contain a letter code, in alphabetic order, which
shall be keyed to the remarks contained in Section IV.
B-4. EXPLANATION OF COLUMNS IN TOOL AND TEST EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS, Section III.
Column 1, Tool or Test Equipment Reference Code. The tool and test equipment reference code correlates
with a code used in the MAC, Section II, Column 5.
Column 2, Maintenance Level. The lowest level of maintenance authorized to use the tool or test
