(2) Ammunition surveillance inspectors are required to submit DA Form 2415, Ammunition
Condition Report (ACR), to provide data for control and management of unserviceable and
permanently suspended ammunition items.
(3) The DA Form 2415 is used to report unserviceable repairable ammunition items which are in
condition codes E, F, G, and N. This form will also be used to report unserviceable,
uneconomically repairable ammunition items in condition code H, and permanently suspended
ammunition in condition code J.
(4) An individual DA Form 2415 will be prepared for each line item reported; however, more than
one lot of identical items can be reported on the same form.
(5) The ACR will be prepared in sufficient copies, as prescribed by local standing operating
procedures (SOP), and forwarded through command channels for disposition.
(6) The processed report will normally be returned through command channels. The report with
endorsement will constitute the authority for disposition of the reported item.
b. Depot Maintenance Work Requirement (DMWR).
(1) Depot Maintenance Work Requirements (DMWRs) are prepared by AMCCOM for a variety of
installations operating on a comparatively large production basis.
(2) DMWRs are composed of a series of sheets in the form of a pamphlet. They are used for
renovation, repair, or demilitarization of ammunition. Each sheet is an operation study of the
technical features of the operation to be accomplished. See Figure 3, page 8 for an example of a
(3) The DMWR shall be approved by the commanding officer, or by a qualified/authorized member
of his staff who has been delegated the responsibility for review and approval of the DMWR.
(4) The sequence of operations may not be applicable to a DS or GS facility. The manner in which
the field unit does a job probably will be different from the manner in which an established depot
does the same job.
(5) A DMWR received in the field will serve as a guide to the ammunition officer in making up the
(6) When a work authorization has been received, with or without an assignment sheet, the unit will
prepare the details and procedures for doing the work.
c. Operational Planning.
(1) The proper performance of a maintenance operation depends primarily upon thorough planning.
A thorough study should be conducted to determine the specific operations required, and at what
point they should be accomplished. Safety requirements are very important in this study-they
must be included in all phases throughout the operation. Additional planning factors include:
