Changes to Conventional Manuals
The Naval Air Technical Services Facility
(NAVAIRTECHSERVFAC) determines when there
is a requirement to change a manual and authorizes
that the change be made. Information gathered is
combined to correct or update pages affected by the
change requirement. A change to the A page
(Numerical Index of Effective Pages) is prepared to
identify all pages that have been changed. See figure
2-8. The A page helps the user insert new pages and
maintain a record of current pages.
When a change is issued, existing page numbers,
paragraph numbers, figure numbers, and table
numbers are not changed. Supplemental numbers are
assigned to new pages, paragraphs, figures, and tables.
