SE, material, manpower, and other factors that
affect the maintenance operation can be
determined before actual need.
To put the finishing touches on the monthly
maintenance plan, two meetings are held. The
first meeting is held within the maintenance
department. It is attended by all of the super-
visors. The purpose of this meeting is to present
the proposed plan and to discuss problems,
support, and other factors involved in the overall
maintenance effort. The second meeting is held
with the supporting IMA for the same purpose
as the first meeting.
Although the format and arrangement of the
monthly maintenance plan is determined by the
maintenance officer, each plan should contain the
following minimum information:
. Projected known operational commit-
ments, including number of flights, flight hours,
and aircraft use. (This information may be
obtained from the operations department.)
l Date of scheduled inspections.
. Schedule of preinspection meetings.
. Date of scheduled receipt or transfer of
aircraft and type of work to be accomplished on
. PME calibration requirements.
. Schedule of technical training.
. Forced removal items (high time, etc.).
l Technical directive compliance require-
l Current list of QA personnel (QAR,
. Schedule of personnel for ejection seat
. Dates of scheduled SE inspections.
. Scheduled nondestructive inspection (NDI)
The monthly maintenance plan is prepared
and distributed by the 25th of the month prior
to the month to which it applies; that is, the plan
for April should be distributed by March 25.
The plan is distributed and its contents are
made known to maintenance supervisors within
the activity, plus the supporting IMA and the
station/ship supply officer. Although the
maintenance/material control officer has the
responsibility for preparing and publishing the
monthly maintenance plan, AZs assigned to
maintenance control or to maintenance adminis-
tration usually complete and submit a rough draft
of the plan to the maintenance/material control
officer for approval. The finished product is
submitted to the maintenance officer for
ACTIVITY MONTHLY MAINTENANCE
The monthly maintenance plan is published
by the IMA for use by the production divisions.
The IMA officer holds a monthly meeting that
is attended by representatives of the maintenance
and supply departments of all supported activities.
A weapons department representative attends this
meeting also. The purpose of the meeting is to
provide the necessary planning and coordination
to improve the overall maintenance program.
Organizational maintenance representatives
attend this meeting to discuss the quantity and
types of support required, including the contents
of the organizational monthly maintenance plan.
All factors that affect the anticipated IMA
workload should be discussed by the squadron
representatives. This meeting is a valuable tool in
planning the monthly maintenance schedule. The
following is the minimum information that should
be included in the intermediate-level monthly
l A projected schedule of items to be
inducted for check and test from supported
squadrons and the supply activity.
. Anticipated changes in the operational
commitments of supported activities.
. A schedule of technical training.
l A schedule of maintenance requirements
for shop-installed SE.
. Other known or anticipated factors that
affect the production effort of the IMA.
