centers in the other production divisions to correct minor discrepancies.
TARGET. - A target division is established when responsibilities relative to the operation and maintenance of aerial or surface targets are extensive. The target division coordinates and completes periodic maintenance, inspections, decontamination, and rehabilitation of assigned targets.
The primary purpose of intermediate maintenance is to support and supplement the work of organizational maintenance activities. These functions are usually performed in centrally located areas for the support of operating aircraft on a shore station, aboard a ship, or within a designated area.
Intermediate maintenance activities are not assigned aircraft for operational purposes; their efforts are concentrated on repairing and testing aircraft components. Naturally, this requires a certain amount of recordkeeping and reporting.
The organizational structure of activities performing intermediate maintenance is, for the most part, closely related to that of an organizational maintenance activity. Because of their size and maintenance functions performed, intermediate maintenance activities are composed of more divisions than organizational maintenance activities. As in organizational maintenance activities, intermediate maintenance activities are composed of maintenance managers, staff divisions, and production divisions. An intermediate maintenance department organization is shown in figure 1-2. A discussion of the various divisions of an intermediate maintenance department is contained in the following paragraphs.
Staff divisions are incorporated into intermediate maintenance activities for essentially the same reasons as they are in organizational maintenance activities - to provide services and support to the production elements.
ADMINISTRATION. - The administration division functions basically as the coordinator for all records and reports, directives, correspondence, and personnel matters for the department. It provides the department with such administrative and clerical services as the reproduction, distribution, and routing of messages, directives, correspondence, and other forms of informational data. This division implements directives concerning the distribution, retention, and disposition of records, reports, and logs. It controls the classified matter required by the department, establishes and coordinates the department training requirements, and obtains any school quotas needed to support these requirements. It acts as a liaison between the divisions of the department, between the maintenance department and other departments of the organization, and between the maintenance department of its parent organization and the maintenance department of other organizations.
The administration division accomplishes the following specific functions:
. Establishes and controls a central reporting and recordkeeping system for all maintenance reports and correspondence.
. Implements all directives concerning distribution, retention, and disposition of records, reports, and logs.
