Information Documented on the VIDS/MAF
VIDS/MAFs are used to document the types of maintenance actions that are listed below:
1. Repair work on equipment that does not involve removal of defective or suspected defective repairable components.
2. That portion of a calendar, special, conditional, corrosion, periodic, phase, acceptance, or transfer inspection that involves the search for (not repair of) defects. This portion is commonly referred to as the look phase .
3. Removal of components for check, test, inspection, and service actions.
4. Removal and replacement of an item for cannibalization purposes.
5. Fix-phase actions that involve the correction of discrepancies discovered during the look phase of a scheduled inspection.
6. Recording man-hours accumulated during work stoppage for parts or maintenance.
7. Accumulated man-hours during or at the end of a reporting period for a job not completed, where required by the cognizant aircraft controlling custodian (ACC).
8. Maintenance actions and man-hours by the assisting work center in support of a primary work center.
9. In support of a repairable item processing through an intermediate maintenance activity.
10. Removal or installation of components for mission configuration changes as designated by the ACC; for example, removal or installation of buddy stores in compliance with ACC directives.
11. Troubleshooting man-hours.
12. Incorporation of technical directive changes and associated maintenance actions.
13. Collection of subsystem capability and impact reporting (SCIR) data.
14. Removal and replacement of repairable components within end items.
15. Record of ordering and issuing of repairable components, subassemblies, and parts.
16. Accumulated man-hours on jobs closed out due to an aircraft accident,
17. Documentation of preservation/depreservation.
18. Documentation of data in the area of corrosion prevention.
The data blocks used in documenting maintenance 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 text.
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 appropriate blocks, 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.
LOCAL USE BLOCK. This block may be used as desired locally.Continue Reading
