OUT Material Condition Reporting Status
(MCRS) (inventory codes 1-4). The term OUT of
MCRS means that an aircrat is in the inventory
reporting system but does not require SCIR
documentation. An aircraft is placed OUT of
MCRS for depot-level maintenance. When an
aircraft is placed OUT of MCRS, the equipment
operational capability code (EOC) A applies to
all existing SCIR discrepancies.
Transaction codes. Inventory transactions are
described by the transaction codes listed below.
Inventory gain (transaction code 00). An
inventory gain is the receipt of an aircraft into
inventory reporting by a reporting custodian.
Aircraft are gained in any inventory status.
Inventory loss (transaction code 03), An
inventory loss occurs when a reporting custodian
transfers an aircraft or strikes it from naval
service. An inventory loss is documented only if
the aircraft has been previously gained and is in
the inventory system. Aircraft may be lost in any
Change of MCRS (transaction code 02). A
change of MCRS (OUT and IN) does not involve
a change of reporting custodian.
Once preparations have been completed to
establish the master file and the ASSIGNED hour
bank at the DSF, the appropriate inventory and
readiness reporting begins. Inventory change
transactions ensure aircraft inventory control
at both the Fleet Material Support Office
(FLEMATSUPPO) and the Naval Sea Logistics
Center (NAVSEALOGCEN) and provide the
necessary input to the monthly report of summary
data. A VIDS/MAF is submitted for each
reportable incident of inventory change by all
reporting custodians supported by a DSF or
having access to data entry facilities, and by all
non-DSF supported custodians. Submission of an
aircraft inventory VIDS/MAF is required when
an aircraft (1) is gained (received into the unit
reporting custody), (2) is lost from unit reporting
custody (transfer or strike), or (3) changes either
into or out of material condition reporting status
(MCRS). The submission of SCIR inventory data
does not relieve the unit of the responsibility for
OPNAV XRAY report submission according to
the latest edition of OPNAVINST 5442.2. Flight
and capability data is reported by the unit having
SCIR inventory control as of the time the incident
To ensure accurate SCIR reporting and to ease
the documentation workload, all outstanding
SCIR-related maintenance actions should be
changed to reflect an EOC code of A when there
are inventory transactions, losses, or a change in
MCRS of OUT. Aircraft inventory GAINS or a
change in MCRS of IN require SCIR docu-
If an aircraft is lost because of transfer or
strike, all outstanding SCIR-related maintenance
actions as well as non-SCIR maintenance actions
must be closed out at the time of transfer or strike
and processed through the DSF. If the aircraft
is transferred, all outstanding maintenance actions
will be reinitiated by the receiving activity using
the Julian date and time as recorded on the
aircraft inventory gain VIDS/MAF.
If an aircraft is placed in an OUT of MCRS,
all outstanding SCIR-related maintenance actions
must be changed to reflect an EOC code of A.
Maintenance/production control notifies all
concerned work centers of the change in status.
This action takes place at the time of the change
in MCRS for maintenance actions in an M
(maintenance) or S (supply) status. The use of this
special code indicates an aircraft is out of
reporting status and does not reflect the aircrafts
capability. Secondly, the accounting for AWM
time must not be accounted for during the period
an equipment is out of service (EOS) or during
the period equipment is in an EOC code of A.
Any SCIR-related maintenance actions with valid
EOC code hours must be closed out at the end
of the current reporting period, even though they
are EOC coded A at the end of the period. At
the time of close out, reinitiation of all SCIR-
related maintenance actions will be necessary for
the next period using the EOC code A. No further
close out of that document is required, provided
no valid EOC code hours are documented during
subsequent reporting periods.
The completion of the inventory VIDS/MAF
for a gain is discussed in the following paragraphs.
The example of an aircraft gain into SCIR
inventory reporting is shown on the VIDS/MAF
in figure 4-18. You should refer to this figure as
you read this section. Those blocks that are not
mentioned in the discussion are left blank.
