VIDS/MAF Data Blocks
The data blocks used in documenting mainte-
nance actions on the VIDS/MAF are shown in
figure 4-2, and their use is discussed below.
You should locate each block on the VIDS/MAF
(fig. 4-2) as you read about that block in the
ENTRIES REQUIRED SIGNATURE BLOCK.
This section ensures that historical records are
updated in a timely and orderly manner. Required
actions will be accomplished before the VIDS/
MAF is forwarded to data services for data entry.
Maintenance control/logs and records personnel
should screen all VIDS/MAFs, checking the
and then enter their
name/rate in the signature portion of this block.
This signature certifies that no entries are required
or all applicable logs/records have had the
appropriate entries made.
REFERENCE BLOCK. This block contains
the supply reference to help the material control
division requisition failed or required material.
LOCAL USE BLOCK. This block may be
used as desired locally.
