What's an IETM? ... and how do I get one?
But the similarity to ETMs ends there.
IETMs are designed to reduce the tedious thumbing back and forth--from text to line drawings, tables and other illustrative material common to paper TMs--by providing hyperlinks between linked information. Also, IETMs are not limited to the page layouts of past printed manuals. So information can be presented in ways that enhance user interaction.
A good example is the troubleshooting section. The user clicks on the current problem and the IETM walks the user through the troubleshooting process to find the problem.
Some IETMs are also designed to interface with the equipment itself when used with maintenance support devices. This allows electronic diagnostics and helps automate the parts requests process when repairs or replacements are needed.
Some IETMs help by exporting a list of parts needed for repairs.
Getting ETMs and IETMs
The LOGSA ETM website listed above gets you access to both ETMs and IETMs.
To find out which IETMs are available online, enter "IETM" (without the quotes) in the PUB TITLE TEXT search box, and click SEARCH.
On the ETM search results screens, the left-hand column tells you whether the document shown is a PDF file, a WebETM (a collection of related TMs), or an IETM.
IETMs are updated by the equipment proponents as required and then posted to the LOGSA site.
IETM CDs can be ordered by unit publication clerks through the Army Publishing Directorate just like any other TM by using their EM number.
