responsiveness in filling requisitions.
It will also enable a reduction in
component cost in the future.
(2) Obsolete set components.
Some calibration activities are
retaining obsolete standards components which they feel are more reliable
than the item it replaced.
If the new item is unreliable, its condition
should be reported on an EIR.
The activities are requisitioning repair
parts for the obsolete item and this creates problems at the NICP. The NICP
does not stock repair parts for obsolete items and all requisitions for
these repair parts will be rejected. The obsolete items should be turned in
through normal supply procedures. If an obsolete item is to be retained by
the calibration activity, AMCC must approve the request for retention of the
e. Plug-in Board Exchange Program.
(1) In August 1970 an exchange program for defective plug-in boards
The program was implemented with a letter identifying
initial instruments supported and 18 plug-in boards.
The program was
implemented to assure a more rapid return to serviceable condition of
implementation of the program, spare boards were provided to overseas
activities only. This program now provides all calibration activities with
spare plug-in boards. Refer to TB 43-0001-32 (Equipment Improvement Report
and Maintenance Digest Calibration Standards and Accessories) for the list
of plug-in boards currently available to you.
(2) Repair parts should not be requisitioned for plug-in boards
identified in the plug-in board exchange program, except by the depot
designated to perform the repair. Repair of calibration set components with
plug-in board assemblies or subassemblies designated as program exchange
replacements will be accomplished by replacing the plug-in board.
(3) The plug-in board exchange program functions as follows:
instrument boards are distributed by letter to each CRC.
(b) As a plug-in board covered by the program fails, a replacement
will be requisitioned. Requisitions will be submitted to the Commander, US
Army Missile Materiel Readiness command, B64, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama
(c) The defective plug-in board being replaced will be shipped by
certified mail, return receipt requested, to the Transportation Officer
(A3152F), Anniston Army Depot, M/F Field Service Stock, Anniston, Al 36201.
Simultaneously a copy of the shipping certification will be mailed to the
Commander, US Army Missile Materiel Readiness Command, ATTN: DRMSMI-SSBM,
Redstone Arsenal, Alabama 35809.
