FIELD MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
BRIDGE ERECTION BOAT (BEB)
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
Designated PMCS intervals are to be followed under usual
operating conditions. PMCS must be performed more frequently
when operating under unusual conditions.
Perform all checks and services per the designated intervals specified in the PMCS table. Service intervals
are for normal operation of the BEB in moderate temperatures, humidity, and atmospheric conditions. The
intervals are hard-time intervals which are performed per the BEB age or calendar time. The hard-time
intervals are based on calendar time or hours. An example of calendar intervals are quarterly delivery or
three months or 250 hours.
EXPLANATION OF COLUMNS
The following is a list of the PMCS table column headings with a description of the information found in
a. Item Number. This column shows the sequence in which the inspection and services are to be
performed, and is used to identify the equipment area on the Equipment Inspection and Maintenance
Worksheet, DA Form 2404 or 5988-E (automated), in accordance with DA Form 750-8.
b. Interval. This column shows when each check is to be performed.
c. Location/Item To Check/Service. This column lists the location of the item to be inspected by
part, component, or assembly name.
d. Item to be Inspected/Procedures. This column identifies the general area or specific part where
the check or service is to be done and explains how to do it.
The terms ready/available and mission capable refer to the same
status: equipment is on hand and is able to perform its combat
mission. Refer to DA PAM 750-8.
e. Not Fully Mission Capable If:. This column lists conditions that make the equipment unavailable
for use because it is unable to perform its mission, or because it would represent a safety hazard. Do
not accept or operate equipment with a condition in the Not Fully Mission Capable If column.
If any problem with the equipment is discovered during PMCS or while it is being operated that cannot be
corrected at the field maintenance level, it must be reported. Refer to DA PAM 750-8 and report the
