Item No column. Items in this column are for reference. When completing DA Form

for the check/service indicating a fault. Item numbers also appear in the order that

Location/Item to Check Service column. The items listed in this column are divided
into groups indicating the portion of the equipment of which they are a part, i.e. front,
left, engine. Under these groupings, a few common words are used to identify the
specific item being checked.
Procedure column. This column contains a brief description of the procedure by
which the check is performed.
Not Fully Mission Capable If: column. This column contains the criteria that causes
the equipment to be classified as NOT READY/NOT AVAILABLE because of inability
to perform its primary mission. An entry in this column will identify conditions that
will make the equipment not ready/available for readiness reporting purposes.
Extreme weather conditions, periods of high use, or combat conditions may dictate
that PMCS is performed more often than is required in the PMCS tables.
