Army National Guard tests National Maintenance Work Requirements.

Iowa Army National Guard mechanics at the National Maintenance Training Center (NMTC) at Camp Dodge, Iowa, have teamed with Tankautomotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) equipment specialists to verify the accuracy of draft National Maintenance Work Requirements (NMWRs). An NMWR is a set of standards developed by TACOM LCMC that detail the procedures, sources of repair, tools, and parts needed to rebuild military equipment and components. Basically a step above a technical manual, an NMWR provides a step-by-step guide for rebuilding a piece of military equipment.

To validate each NMWR, the NMTC mechanics complete the procedures described in the NMWR--page by page and line by line--to ensure that all steps are included and described correctly. At each step, the mechanics confirm that all words and artwork detailing the procedures are accurate and easily understood. The goal of this 3-week process is for each NMWR to be 100-percent correct when published.
