PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (Contd)
EXPLANATION OF COLUMNS
The following is a list and description of the column headings in the PMCS.
a. Item Number. This column shows the sequence in which the checks and
services are to be performed, and is used to identify the equipment area on
the Equip-ment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet, DA Form 2404 or
DA Form 5988-E.
b. Interval. This column indicates when each check is to be performed.
c. Item To Check/Service. This column identifies the item and location to be
inspected by part, component, or assembly name.
d. Procedure. This column explains what type of service, specific damage, or
defect is to be checked.
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
e. Not Fully Mission Capable If. This column lists conditions that make the
equipment unavailable for use as a result of damage, missing parts, or
improper functioning that would represent a safety hazard. Do not accept or
operate equipment with a condition noted in the "Not Fully Mission Capable
If " column.
If any problem with the equipment is discovered while performing PMCS or
during operation that cannot be corrected at the operator's level, it must be
reported. Refer to DA Pam 750-8 and report the deficiency on Equipment
Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet, DA Form 2404 or DA Form 5988-E.
