B-2. Maintenance functions (cont.)
j. Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely ser-
viceable/operational condition as required by maintenance standards in appropriate technical publications (i.e., DMWR).
Overhaul is normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul does not normally return an
item to like new condition.
k. Rebuild. Consists of those services/actions necessary for the restoration of unserviceable equipment to a like new
condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest degree of materiel maintenance
applied to Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of returning to zero those age measurements
(hours/miles, etc.) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.
a. Column 1. Group Number. Column 1 lists functional group code numbers, the purpose of which is to identify
maintenance significant components, assemblies, subassemblies, and modules with the next higher assembly. End item
group number shall be "00".
b. Column 2, Component/Assembly. Column 2 contains the names of components, assemblies, subassemblies, and
modules for which maintenance is authorized.
c. Column 3, Maintenance Function. Column 3 lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in Column 2.
d. Column 4, Maintenance Category. Column 4 specifies, by the listing of a work time figure in the appropriate
subcolumn(s), the category of maintenance authorized to perform the function listed in Column 3. This figure represents
the active time required to perform that maintenance function at the indicated category of maintenance. If the number or
complexity of the tasks within the listed maintenance function vary at different maintenance categories, appropriate work
time figures will be shown for each category. The work time figure represents the average time required to restore an
item (assembly, subassembly, component, module, end item, or system) to a serviceable condition under typical field
operating conditions. This time includes preparation time (including any necessary disassembly/assembly time),
troubleshooting/fault location time, and quality assurance/quality control time in addition to the time required to perform
the specific tasks identified for the maintenance functions authorized in the maintenance allocation chart. The symbol
designations for the various maintenance categories are as follows:
Operator or crew
Direct Support Maintenance
General Support Maintenance
e. Column 5, Tools and Equipment. Column 5 specifies, by code, those common tool sets (not individual tools) and
special tools, TMDE, and support equipment required to perform the designated function.
f. Column 6, Remarks. This column shall, when applicable, contain a letter code, in alphabetic order, which shall be

a. Column 1. Reference Code. The tool and test equipment reference code correlates with a code used in the MAC,
b. Column 2, Maintenance Category. The lowest category of maintenance authorized to use the tool or test
