manufacturer's data to see if the item is currently in the supply System.
If the item is not in the supply system, the supply man can requisition the

c. Obtaining the repair part. Once you have identified the defective

responsibility normally ends here.
However, a brief view of the supply
system will be beneficial to you. Tech Supply will obtain the part for you
from one of the following.
The PLL should contain a fifteen
days supply of parts.
This supply has been determined by previous demand
The supply personnel are responsible for the maintenance of the
list. Any part that you order at least three times in 180 days qualifies
for the PLL. Once an item goes on the PLL, supply must maintain the total
number authorized in stock or on order at all times.
The PLL must be
approved by the local commander.
The key here is the number of demands not the amount of a specific
part ordered. If you have a single requisition for ten of a specific part,
you will have one demand. However, if you have 10 requisitions for a single
part, you have 10 demands. This is the way the supply system is set up. If
it is to be responsive to our needs, then, we must use it correctly.
