Maintenance allocation charts changing.
Life will be easier in the future if soldiers who maintain equipment understand the changes that are coming. Changes to future maintenance allocation charts reflect a changing philosophy in Army maintenance operations.
A new system of maintenance will use field and sustainment as the two levels of maintenance.
Field maintenance will include operator/crew and unit maintenance and selected direct support tasks. Maintenance at this level will generally be "on-system" replacement of defective components and preventive maintenance. Repaired equipment remains with the unit.
Sustainment maintenance covers selected DS, general support, and depot "off-system" repairs of defective equipment/components. Repaired equipment/components are returned to the Army supply distribution system.
Under these two levels, C, O and F level maintenance will be field categories on new and revised maintenance allocation charts. Categories H, L and D will be sustainment tasks.
