Material Condition codes apply to specific
quantities of material held in the supply system.
Therefore, you will not find them listed in stock
catalogs. You will see Material Condition codes on
stock records and on documents that affect stock
Special Material Identification Code (SMIC). The
SMIC is a two-digit code. It is a suffix of the NSN.
ASO uses the SMIC to identify items to aircraft
models, engine models, certain commodities, and
special projects or programs.

MATERIAL READINESS LIST
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Define the purpose
of the Aircraft Maintenance Material Readiness
List (AMMRL) program.
AMMRL is the title of an overall program that
provides the data required for effective management
of SE at ail levels of aircraft maintenance. This
program involves more than 27,000 line items of
aircraft/SE maintenance (IMRL items), and 10,000
tailored outfitting list (TOL) items that are used
throughout the Navy by aircraft maintenance
activities. Two NAVAIR instructions describe the
procedures for allowance and inventory control,
NAVAIRINST 13650.1 for IMRL items and
NAVAIRINST 13630.1 for TOL items. The AMMRL
program recognizes the many ship-and-base loading
combinations and various requirements for numerous
airframe configurations. power plants, and avionics
systems. The objective of this program is to document
data and in-use asset information concerning SE that
management uses for the following purposes:
To set allowance requirements for SE at
activities performing I-, O-, and D-level
To provide standardized accounting and
inventory control procedures
To assist in the redistribution of in-use assets
To provide a base for budgeting requirements
To assist in measuring material readiness
This section contains definitions of terms used
within the AMMRL program.
Support Equipment (SE). The equipment
required on the ground to make a system, subsystem,
or end item of equipment operational in its intended
environment. This includes all equipment required to
install, launch, arrest (except Navy shipboard and
shore-based launching and arresting equipment),
guide, control, direct, inspect, and test (including
automatic test equipment [ATE] hardware and
software). Also included is equipment required to
adjust, calibrate, appraise, gauge, measure, assemble,
disassemble, handle, transport, safeguard, store,
actuate, service, repair, overhaul, maintain, or operate
the system, subsystem, end item, or component. This
definition of SE applies regardless of the method of
development, funding, or procurement.
Support Equipment Resources Management
Information System (SERMIS). A collection of
technical and cataloging data that identifies each end
item of SE required for O- and I-level aircraft
maintenance. SERMIS provides the support
equipment controlling authority (SECA) with on-line
visibility of source, allowance, inventory, and rework
data to aid in inventory control. SERMIS is the
repository of master data for printing IMRLs. It also
provides in-use visibility to ASO, Naval Aviation
Maintenance Office (NAVAVNMAINTOFF or
NAMO), the Naval Air Engineering Center
(NAVAIRENGCEN), and Commander Naval Air
Systems Command (COMNAVAIRSYSCOM).
Individual Material Readiness List (IMRL). A
consolidated allowance list specifying authorized
quantities of aviation SE required by a particular
activity to perform its assigned maintenance level
