capability. An aircraft in this category of readiness can safely perform all of its intended missions. All aircraft maintenance departments in the Navy have a standard organization. The importance of having a standard organization should be clear if you consider what happens when you transfer from one aircraft maintenance activity to another. When you transfer from one activity to another, you should remember the following: The work centers in both the old and new activ- ities use the same work center codes and names. Officers will occupy similar billets. When you perform clerical and administrative duties, you will use the same publications, instructions, forms, and procedures. In other words, when you transfer from one aviation maintenance activity to another, you should be able to perform in your new activity within a very short period. Q5. Maintaining assigned aircraft in a state of full mission capability is the objective of what department in an operating unit or activity? MAINTENANCE LEVELS AND TYPES OF MAINTENANCE LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Identify the different levels of maintenance. Define and compare maintenance upkeep and repair. The NAMP defines a three-level maintenance concept and is the authority that governs the management of organizational-, intermediate-, and depot-level aviation maintenance. The NAMP provides the management tools for the efficient and economical use of manpower and material resources. In addition, the NAMP provides the basis for establishing standard organizations, procedures, and responsibilities for the accomplishment of all maintenance on naval aircraft, associated material, and equipment. The three levels of maintenance allow management to accomplish the following: Classify maintenance functions by levels Assign responsibility for maintenance functions to a specific level Assign maintenance tasks that are consistent with job complexity, scope, and range of work to be performed Accomplish any maintenance tasks by ensuring optimum use of resources Collect, analyze, and use data to assist all levels of management that are concerned with the NAMP. MAINTENANCE LEVELS The term aircraft maintenance has a very broad meaning, ranging from a few minutes of aircraft servicing to many months of overhaul in an industrial-type facility. More than the words aircraft maintenance or maintenance are needed to define the full scope of aviation aircraft maintenance. The concept divides all aircraft maintenance functions into three distinct levels. The terms that describe these three levels are organizational maintenance, intermediate maintenance, and depot maintenance. The three aircraft maintenance levels provide an orderly separation of maintenance tasks. Task complexity, space requirement, skill level of assigned personnel, and scope of support responsibility are the basis for the separation of tasks. Organizational Maintenance (O-Level) Organizational maintenance is the day-to-day work that an operating unit performs in support of its own operations. The mission of the O-level activity is to maintain its aircraft and equipment in a full mission capable status while improving the local maintenance process. Maintenance at this level includes line operations (inspections, servicing, handling, and so forth) and periodic inspections of aircraft and equipment and associated tests. O-level maintenance also includes repairs and minor adjustments that do not require shop facilities as well as the removal and installation of components. Operating units perform O-level maintenance in assigned facilities. A squadron may have exclusive use of assigned facilities or may share the facilities with one or more other squadrons. In an operating activity, permanently assigned sailors normally perform organizational maintenance. The operations maintenance division (OMD) performs O-level maintenance at naval air stations on station aircraft. The OMD also provides O-level maintenance and other assistance to transient aircraft. Intermediate Maintenance (I-Level) Intermediate maintenance is work that is performed in centrally located facilities for the support of operating activities within a designated geographical 1-2
