VIDS Operating Procedures
The supervisors signature on the VIDS/MAF
means that the following actions have been taken:
The work center receives copies 1, 4, and 5 of the
VIDS/MAF with the nonready-for-issue (non-RFI)
component. The work center supervisor puts copy 5 on
the work center VIDS board in the pocket next to the
unit code (WUC)/LRCA
number/part number/name under the In-Work column.
Copies 1 and 4 are kept with the inducted equipment
throughout the maintenance cycle. If the job is not
assigned by production control, copy 5 is placed under
the AWM column. Any status changes, such as from
In Work to AWP or In Work to AWM, must be
reported to production control. Copy 5 is then placed
under the correct column of the work center VIDS
When a component goes to an AWP status and
after appropriate entries have been made on the
VIDS/MAF, that component should be packaged and
preserved. Then, it is sent to the AWP unit or its
equivalent. Copies 1 and 4 of the VIDS/MAF stay with
the component. Copy 5 of the VIDSMAF is moved to
the AWP column of the work center VIDS board.
When the component is in a ready for issue (RFI)
or beyond capability of maintenance (BCM)
condition, the necessary entries are made on all copies
of the VIDSMAF (including date). Copy 5 is placed
in a temporary file until it is verified against the daily
audit report (DAR). Components that are BCM have
the Type Equipment code and job control number
(JCN) entered in the Remarks block of the attached
Material Condition Tag (DD Form 1577-2/1577-3).
Maintenance actions have been completed.
Too! control inventories have been held at the
The component has been adequately preserved
and secured for routing to the AMSU.
Documentation is correct.
QA measures have been met.
The work center supervisor is also responsible for
maintaining the work centers VIDS board. As shown
in figures 1-9 and l-10, this board provides the status
for In-Work, AWM, and AWP components by WUC,
pool index number, or part number within the work
NOTE: It is not mandatory that the VIDS boards
be set up exactly as they are shown in this chapter.
However, In-Work, AWM, and AWP must be visually
shown by WUC, pool index, or part number at the
I-level of maintenance.
The production control supervisor should
establish a schedule to make sure that a!! work centers
verify the production control VIDS board at least
What does a red signal tab on an I-level VIDS
board or VIDS/MAF indicate?
Upon induction of a non-RFI component to an
I-level activity, where are copies 1, 4. and 5 of
the VIDS/MIF routed?
