Awaiting Parts (AWP) Unit
The AWP unit is responsible for receiving, storing,
and controlling all repairable items in an AWP status
from IMA. The AWP storage area should be located
near the general area of the production control division
of the IMA.
When the required repair parts are not available, the
maintenance personnel will deliver the AWP
component, hardwares, and associated documents to
the AWP holding area.
The AWP component is
delivered to the AWP holding area within 24 hours from
the time the requisition is submitted. This includes
cases when the supply status is not received by the work
center within 24 hours.
The AWP unit is responsible for the following
. To establish holding or staging areas for all AWP
. To maintain requisition files and registers
necessary to monitor, follow-up, expedite, and
reconcile material demands.
. To receive bits and piece material and identify
them to the failed component. Reinduct the
AWP component back to IMA when all the
required bits and piece material are received.
l To review and submit follow-ups for outstanding
. To establish procedures to ensure unsatisfactory
LRCA AWP situations are made known to
higher authority for assistance.
. To make recommendations for controlled
cannibalization to the IMA.
. To establish procedures to BCM components to
the next level of repair when appropriate.
. To establish local rescreen procedures to satisfy
. To perform weekly reviews to maintain accurate
inventory and requisition records. A standard of
no less than 98 percent accuracy is necessary for
effective AWP management.
Process components in AWP as follows:
. Use conversation code N680 to verify the job
status of an MCN. Ensure the MCN has
outstanding material requirements.
l Receive the components into AWP by using
conversation code N644. (See the following
At least one material requirement for a
repair part must be outstanding for the AWP
component being processed.
Conversation code N644 will assign the
same AWP location as the like item already
in AWP status.
The AWP quantity of the same NIIN record
The system will generate the HIGH AWP
notice if the percent AWP of the fixed
allowance quantity (FAQ) exceeds the AWP
PERCENT set on the FGC record.
. Update the AWP location of an item by using
conversation code N649.
. Use conversation code N648 to transpose repair
parts from one AWP component to another
component. This action is also known as
cannibalization. (See the following list.)
This transaction updates the FAILED
RECORDS on the MAF to show the
transpose of DDSNs.
Updates the requisition records to show the
transpose of the MCNs.
Generates the NO REQUISITIONS
OUTSTANDING NOTICE if the transpose
action completes the last outstanding
requisition of the MAF.
Generates the ADD ALTERNATE NIIN
NOTICE if transpose is processed for NSNs
that are not 100 percent interchangeable on
. Use conversation code N608 to reorder I-level
direct support (MAF related) material that has
been canceled or did not fill the requirement.
A new DDSN and LSC will be assigned by
the system. If the previous LSC was
