MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART
GENERAL. The KCLFF and KCLFF-E have been designed with few moving parts for field use. As a
result, maintenance and repair requirements have been minimized.
Maintenance Categories. Applicable maintenance categories include operator, organization, and direct
support maintenance (requiring repair/replacement of welds and rivets).
Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC). The MAC in section II designates overall authority and responsibility
for the performance of maintenance functions on identified end items or components.
TooIs and Test Equipment. Section II lists the tools and test equipment (both special tools and common tool
sets) required for each maintenance function referenced in Section II.
Supplemental Instructions and Explanatory Notes. Section IV contains supplemental instructions and
explanatory notes for specific maintenance functions.
MAINTENANCE FUNCTION. The maintenance functions are defined as follows:
Inspect. To determine if an item is ready for use by comparing its physical, mechanical, and/or electrical
characteristics with established standards through examination.
Test. To verify if an item is ready for use and to detect potential failure by measuring the mechanical or
electrical characteristics of an item and comparing those characteristics with prescribed standards.
Service. Actions required on a regular basis to keep an item in proper operating condition, i.e., to clean
(decontaminate), to preserve, to drain, to paint, or to replenish fuel, lubricants, hydraulic fluids, or
compressed air supplies.
Aline. To maintain, within prescribed limits, by bringing into proper or exact position, or by setting the
operating characteristics to the specified parameters.
Aline. To adjust specified variable elements of an item to bring about optimum or described performance.
Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be adjusted on instruments or test
measuring and diagnostic equipments used in precision measurement. Calibration consists of comparison of
two instruments, one of which meets a certified standard of known accuracy to detect and adjust any
discrepancy in the accuracy of the instrument being compared.
