The VIDSMAF documents the following types of
maintenance actions and accumulates data for reports
that establish supply and manpower requirements:
Repair work on the equipment that does not
involve removal of defective or suspected defective
The portion of a special, conditional, corrosion,
periodic, phase, acceptance, or transfer inspection that
involves the search for defects. This portion is
commonly known as the look phase.
Removal of components for check, test,
inspection, and service actions.
Removal and replacement of an item for
Removal or installation of items/components for
mission configuration changes as designated by the
Incorporation of TD changes and associated
Removal and replacement of repairable
components within end items.
Subsystem Capability and Impact Reporting
Fix-in-place actions discovered during
Man-hours accumulated during work stoppage
for parts or maintenance.
Accumulated man-hours during or at the end of
a reporting period for a job not completed, where
required by the ACC.
Assistance from work centers in support of a
basic work center.
Support of a repairable item being processed
through an IMA.
Ordering and issuing of repairable components,
subassemblies, and parts.
Accumulated man-hours on jobs closed out due
to an aircraft accident.
The MAF flow under NALCOMIS varies slightly
from that of a VIDSh4AF. Upon origination of a
discrepancy, only two copies of the MAF are printed
and, as the discrepancy is repaired, it is updated
electronically. The complete process for OMA and
IMA are outlined in OPNAVINST 4790.2.
Q45. What is the result of inaccurate or incomplete
information documented in the Maintenance
Data System (MDS)?
Q46. At both the I and O levels of maintenance, what
is the purpose of NALCOMIS or VIDS/MAFS?
Q47. What is the "look phase" of an inspection?
O- and I-level maintenance supervisors regularly
use the daily and monthly MDRs described in this
section. OPNAVINST 4790.2 lists all of the MDRs
available from the DSF and their uses.
VIDS/MAF Copy 1 Daily
This report is for the work center supervisor. It is
designed to validate the previous days VIDS/MAF
copy 1 submissions. DARs should be verified daily,
corrections annotated, and returned to the analyst. The
analyst will resubmit the corrected report with the
following days data. NALCOMIS users should refer
to the NALCOMIS Users Manual for details on
verification of data accuracy.
This report summarizes, by work center, all
maintenance actions, TD compliance, and data entered
in the Failed/Material block of the VIDS/MAF.
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Recognize the
codes used to document maintenance on
NALCOMIS and the VIDS/MAF.
