To induct components from supply for buildup; for example, engine quick engine change kit (QECK) and wheel/tire assembly
To induct components/items not having a WUC and/or not identifiable to a specific type of equipment for check, test, and service actions or for local manufacture/fabrication
To request nondestructive inspections (NDI), either on-site or at the IMA, as required by supported maintenance activities, when a TD is not involved
To induct items for ready-for-issue (RFI) certification prior to installation in aircraft returned from SDLM
The procedures for documenting maintenance actions are outlined in this section. These procedures are used when items are removed for check, test, and service action, and when they are reinstalled or replaced after the action has been completed. Items that are removed for check, test, and service must be approved by the requesting/supporting activities, and should be restricted to scheduled maintenance requirements only. Induction of check and test items based on local MRCs is subject to the approval of the supporting IMA. Check, test, and service actions are recorded on a VIDS/MAF. Figure 4-33 shows the documentation for the initial removal of items for check, test, and service. You should refer to this figure and locate each block as you read about the documentation in the text.
BLOCKS A08 THROUGH - JOB CONTROL NUMBER (JCN). Enter the JCN that is assigned by maintenance control. When the aircraft is undergoing inspection, enter the sequential (fix) JCN assigned to control the removal and/or installation of the component.
BLOCK A19 - WORK CENTER. Enter the applicable work center code.
BLOCK A22 - WUC/SUPPORT ACTION CODE. Enter the WUC of the removed item. If the item is not identifiable by a specific WUC, you should enter the not otherwise coded (NOC) code. When there is no applicable WUC or NOC code that specifically identifies the function performed (such as buildup and tear down, engine test stand operation, or nonaeronautical work), use the appropriate support action code.
BLOCK A29 - ACTION ORGANIZATION. Enter the action organization code of the organization completing the work.
BLOCK A48 - TYPE EQUIPMENT CODE. Enter the applicable TEC. If the item is not identifiable to a specific type of equipment, enter the applicable general series TEC; for example, Y, Z.
BLOCK A52 - BU/SERNO. Enter the applicable BU/SERNO of the equipment. If there is no serial number, enter 0.
BLOCK A58 - WHEN DISCOVERED. Enter the applicable when discovered code.
BLOCK A59 - TYPE MAINTENANCE (TM) CODE. Enter the applicable TM code. In the case of items removed as part of an inspection, enter the applicable code for the inspection being performed.
BLOCK B08 - RECEIVED DATE. Enter the Julian date the maintenance action was received.
BLOCK B12 - RECEIVED TIME. Enter the time the maintenance action was received.
BLOCK B19 - IN WORK. Enter the Julian date that the work was started.
BLOCK B23 - IN WORK. Enter the time the work was started.
BLOCKS B16 AND B27 - EOC. Document SCIR data, if applicable.
BLOCKS B38 THROUGH B49. Entries are made in these blocks only if SCIR is impacted.
DISCREPANCY BLOCK. Enter the reason for removal; for example, two hydraulic filters removed for check/test and service. List the serial numbers of the items, if appropriate.
VIDS/MAF WORK REQUEST (COMPONENT TURN-IN DOCUMENT)
The work center that originates the maintenance action initiates a VIDS/MAF work request turn-in document before the component and/or item(s) are delivered to the supporting IMA (fig. 4-34). The following blocks are completed. You should refer to figure 4-34 as you read this section.Continue Reading
