figure represents the active time required to perform that maintenance function at the
indicated level of maintenance. If the number or complexity of the tasks within the listed
maintenance function vary at different maintenance levels, appropriate work-time figures
are to be shown for each level. 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 time in addition to the time
