the MAF (or facsimile). Upon completion of AWP
validation, correct the AWP listing accordingly.
The AWP retention goals and thresholds apply to all
fixed allowance assets. A daily count of AWP items must
be conducted to provide management flexibility. The
age of AWP components should be color coded (20, 30,
60, and over 60-day increments).
Supply and maintenance personnel must review the
AWP when the following situations exist:
. Any time the number of AWP components on
hand exceeds 15 percent of the average monthly IMA
l The number of aged (more than 60 days) AWP
components exceeds 1 percent of the average monthly
There will be situations that will require the use of
apiece of a part on a given AWP item that was received
for another AWP item. It is sometimes necessary to
remove an installed part from an AWP item to fix
another AWP item. To ensure replacement of a
cannibalized part, a control system is required. The key
to controlled cannibalization is documentation. Some
occurrences are as follows:
. AWP work center review. The work center
supervisor or representative determines that, by
judicious use of available piece parts accumulated
among a group of like AWP items, a given number of
those AWP items can be repaired.
. CCS initiated review, Outstanding NMCS or
PMCS requirements for repairable may require CCS to
screen AWP items. The CCS may determine if potential
cannibalization is feasible to satisfy the NMCS/PMCS
and request the work center to take action.
The BCM-4 is an Action Taken code assigned to a
repairable item that was not repaired because of lack of
parts. Before processing an AWP item as BCM-4, ensure
all necessary actions were taken to get the part. Review
outstanding requisitions for AWP items on a daily basis.
Submit a follow-up if a positive status is not received
within 10 days. If a satisfactory status is not received 10
days after the follow-up, submit a request for assistance
to the ACC/TYCOM. Refer to NAVSUP P-437 and
chapters 3 and 4 of this TRAMAN for additional
information about supply assistance requests.
There are many variables to consider before you can
BCM an item. They are listed as follows:
Operational requirement. The component maybe
required to meet a specific operational tasking.
Readiness. Mission capable (MC); full mission
IMA production capacity.
Supply system availability of repair parts versus
availability of WRA or SRA.
Financial impact, considering the cost of repair
parts vice net cost of WRA or SRA.
To process the item for BCM-4, reinduct the item
into the work center. The work center will reinstall the
piece parts and perform preservation on the item. Ensure
that the item is complete (no missing parts) before
shipping it to the designated ATAC hub. Request for
approval to retrograde assets will include the following
Past 90-day removal rate
Normal median TAT in IMA
Tentative BCM code of defective item
Narrative of problem precluding local repair
Include the 30-day assist message previously
submitted to the ACC/TYCOM as reference. Other
assets held in AWP may be BCM without prior
ACC/TYCOM approval when the retention limitations
In a NALCOMIS activity, AWP personnel use
several conversation codes to perform AWP functions.
Some of these conversation codes are as follows:
Conversation code N203 provides a cross-reference
of part number to a CAGE and stock number.
Conversation code N216 displays the
Failed/Required Material Data of the MAF Control
Conversation code N644 is used to receive a
component into the AWP location. The Job Status code
must be WT to process component into AWP location.
Conversation code N646 is used to release AWP
components back to the repair cycle. The Job Status
