That maintenance effort (service/action) necessary to restore an item to a completely
serviceable/operational condition as prescribed by maintenance standards (i.e., DMWR) in appropriate technical
publications. Overhaul Is normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul does not
normally return an item to like new condition.
of those services/actions necessary for the restoration
of unserviceable equipment
to a like new
condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest degree of material maintenance

B-3. COLUMN ENTRIES
a. Column 1, Group Number. Column 1 lists group numbers, the purpose of which is to indentify components,
assemblies, subassemblies, and modules with the next higher assembly.
b. Column 2, Component/Assembly. Column 2 contains the noun name of components, assemblies, subassemblies,
and modules for which maintenance is authorized.
c. Column 3, Maintenance Functions. Column 3 lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in column 2.
When items are listed without maintenance functions, it is solely for purpose of having the
group numbers In the MAC and RPSTL coincide.
d. Column 4, Maintenance Category. Column 4 specifies by the listing of a "worktime" figure In the appropriate
subcolumn(s), the lowest level of maintenance authorized to perform the function listed in column 3. This figure
represents the active time required to perform that maintenance function at the Indicated category of maintenance. If the
number of complexity of the tasks within the listed maintenance function vary at different maintenance categories,
appropriate "worktime" figures will be shown for each category. The number of task-hours specified by the "worktime"
figure represents the average time required to restore an item (assembly, subassembly, component, module, end item,
or system) to a serviceable condition under typical field operating conditions. This time includes preparation time,
troubleshooting time, and quality assurance/quality control time in addition to the time required to perform the specific
tasks identified for the maintenance functions authorized in the maintenance allocation chart. Subcolumns of column 4
are as follows:
e. Column 5, Tools and Equipment. Column 5 specifies by code, those common tool sets, (not individual tools) and
special tools, and support equipment required to perform the designated function.
f. Column 6, Remarks. Column
