Chapter 1

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW, SUPPORTING CONCEPTS AND REQUIREMENTS.

1.1. Introduction. This instruction prescribes basic aircraft and equipment maintenance management policy implementation and procedures used throughout the United States Air Force (USAF) to perform Mission Generation (MG) functions. 1.2. Organization. AF organizations are structured according to AFI 38-101, Air Force Organization, or as authorized by the Director of Manpower, Organization & Resources (AF/A1M). Contracted maintenance functions are not required to organize IAW AFI 38-101, but will implement the organization as outlined in their proposal as accepted by the government. For the definition of “Lead Command” see AFPD 10-9, Lead Command Designation and Responsibilities for Weapon Systems. 1.3. Maintenance Concept. Per AFPD 21-1, organizational, intermediate and depot maintenance capabilities for operational readiness shall be maintained to ensure effective and timely response to peacetime operations, mobilizations, national defense contingencies and other emergencies. Note: Guidance for the use of Additive Manufacturing to build replacement parts is prescribed in AFI 63-101/20-101, Integrated Life Cycle Management.

1.3.1. As a minimum each capability will be able to: 1.3.1.1. Organizational: launch and recover sorties, maintain and repair materiel coded for organizational level repair. 1.3.1.2. Intermediate: repair materiel coded for organizational and intermediate level repair in back shops, centralized repair facilities, or both. 1.3.1.3. Depot-level Maintenance: Provides the capability to maintain materiel coded for organizational, intermediate and depot levels of maintenance. Includes maintenance requiring the overhaul, upgrading, or rebuilding of parts, assemblies, or subassemblies, and the testing and reclamation of equipment as necessary.

1.3.2. Organizational and intermediate-level maintenance is organized into two mutually exclusive networks, the Mission Generation Network (MGN) and the Repair Network (RN). The MGN is optimized for mission generation at the wing level and consists of authorized “on- equipment” and “off-equipment” maintenance capabilities required to launch, recover, configure, inspect and repair AF systems and equipment. The RN supports the MGN by providing the maintenance required to fulfill operational needs outside the capability or capacity of MGN activities. The interface between the two networks takes place when the MGN activity relinquishes control of reparable assets to the RN activity (such as, supply counter turn-in) or changing an end item Purpose Identifier Code (PIC) from an operational activity to a repair network activity (such as, depot maintenance).

1.3.2.1. Most MGN units possess a complement of equipment and supplies necessary to perform on-equipment and off-equipment maintenance. 1.3.2.2. RN units may reside at bases that perform mission generation. RN requirements and processes are identified in AFI 20-117, Repair Network Management.

BY ORDER OF THE AIR FORCE INSTRUCTION SECRETARY OF THE …· 2018. 1. 19.· AFI21-101_AMCSUP_JBMDLSUP 18 JANUARY 2018 3 (JBMDL) Air Force Instruction (AFI) 21-101 Air Mobility - [PDF Document] (16)

16 AFI21-101_AMCSUP_JBMDLSUP 29 MARCH 2021

1.3.3. MAJCOMs assigned combat coded fighter aircraft will coordinate with Mission Design Series (MDS) lead and using commands and the MAJCOM Operations Directorate (MAJCOM/A3) to develop and document standardized MDS and Primary Aerospace Vehicle (Aircraft) Authorized (PAA) specific utilization rate standards in their supplements to this instruction. At a minimum the rates will:

1.3.3.1. Consider aggregated and analyzed unit generation capability data to identify and document standard MDS turn patterns by PAA in their supplements to Chapter 14. 1.3.3.2. Account for standard avionics and weapons training configurations. 1.3.3.3. Account for standard Technical Order (TO) driven turn time inspections and Average Sortie Duration. 1.3.3.4. Include a process for supporting units in assessing shortfalls and developing action plans.

1.3.4. Requests for Assistance. If a maintenance activity requires assistance for evaluation, repair, or both, beyond unit capability, requests are made IAW AFI 21-103, Equipment Inventory, Status and Utilization Reporting; TO 00-25-107, Maintenance Assistance; and TO 00-20-14, AF Metrology and Calibration Program, or automated process as approved by the MDS Program Manager (PM) (for example, C-130 Automated Inspection, Repair, Corrosion and Aircraft Tracking (AIRCAT), F-16 Technical Assistance Request). All requests for assistance must be coordinated through the originating MAJCOM and Lead Command as applicable. (T-2).

1.4. Aircraft Maintenance Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP). TTPs are developed from lessons learned and best practices that provide valuable reference documents to improve maintenance processes and procedures. Maintenance leaders should utilize the maintenance fundamentals TTP volumes (Aircraft, Munitions and Missile) to effectively and efficiently support mission generation. Maintainers who attend the USAF Advanced Maintenance and Munitions Operations School are trained in advanced operational, expeditionary and tactical maintenance management concepts stemming from the alumni’s development and formalization of TTPs. Maintenance Group Commander (MXG/CC) should identify their Advanced Maintenance and Munitions Operations School graduates and utilize them as advisors and instructors to enhance mission capability. AFTTP 3-4.21V1, Aircraft Maintenance, can be found at: https://cs2.eis.af.mil/sites/10070/Documents/AFTTP3-4.21V1ACMX.pdf. For additional information on Advanced Maintenance and Munitions Operations School and TTP development see Air Force Manual (AFMAN) 21-111, Advanced Maintenance and Munitions Operations School. 1.5. Aircraft and Equipment Readiness. Aircraft and equipment readiness is the maintenance mission. The maintenance function ensures assigned aircraft and equipment are safe, serviceable, and properly configured to meet mission needs. Maintenance actions include, but are not limited to, inspection, repair, overhaul, modification, preservation, refurbishment, troubleshooting, testing, analyzing condition, performance and maintenance documentation. All levels of supervision need to place emphasis on safety, quality, and timeliness in the performance of maintenance. The concept of quality maintenance must be fostered by each supervisor and technician to ensure the integrity and skill of each maintainer is not degraded. To the greatest extent possible, maintenance is accomplished on a preplanned scheduled basis. Planningprovides

the most effective and efficient use of people, facilities, and equipment, reduces unscheduled maintenance, and allows for progressive actions toward maintaining and returning aircraft and equipment to safe operating condition. Exploiting repair network capability and maintaining visibility of repair cycle assets throughout the maintenance cycle are also critical elements of the equipment maintenance program.

1.5.1. Preventive Maintenance. AF units implement and manage the tasks specified in the scheduled recurring maintenance program for their assigned aircraft and associated support equipment (SE). Preventive maintenance is achieved through the inspection requirement concepts described in TO 00-20-1, Aerospace Equipment Maintenance Inspection, Documentation, Policy, and Procedures, and applicable weapon system -6 TO 1.5.2. MAJCOMs that conduct Mission Generation Assessments or similar weapon system logistic evaluations in order to validate unit readiness will:

1.5.2.1. Provide units a standardized assessment report containing, at a minimum, positive, negative and areas for improvement feedback to facilitate crosstell to like units.

1.5.2.1.1. Analyze unit generation processes to capture and communicate best practices. 1.5.2.1.2. Analyze unit generation performance to identify and communicate noteworthy trends.

1.5.2.2. Directorates of Logistics, Engineering & Force Protection (MAJCOMs A4s) will semi-annually report their top three trends and causal factors to the Logistics Board to facilitate debate to identify and mitigate potential limiting factors. Submit MAJCOM top three trends to the AF/A4LX workflow no later than 30 days prior to each Logistics Board meeting for consolidation at: [emailprotected].

1.6. Maintenance Discipline. It is the responsibility of all maintenance personnel to comply with all written guidance to ensure required repairs, inspections, and documentation are completed in a compliant, safe, timely, and effective manner. Supervisors are responsible for enforcing and establishing a climate that promotes maintenance and supply discipline. Unless expressly stated otherwise in a particular instruction, waiver, or deviation in this AFI granted by the appropriate authority, all Airmen must follow AFIs. (T-1). AFIs do not provide optional guidance, and failure to comply with AFIs can result in disciplinary action as described in AFI 1-1, Air Force Standards. Civilian personnel who violate punitive publications may also be subject to disciplinary action. See AFI 33-360 for more detailed information on the use of punitive language in publications.

1.6. (AMC) Maintenance Discipline. HQ AMC/A4 Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will, in conjunction with AMC/IG and in accordance with AFI 90-201, The Air Force Inspection System, verify and validate compliance through continual evaluation using tools such as, but not limited to, Management Internal Control Toolset (MICT), metrics, Maintenance Information Systems (MIS), Training Business Area (TBA), Maintenance Standardization and Evaluation Program (MSEP) data, and site visits within the Air Force Inspection System (AFIS) construct.

1.10. Maintenance Training. Maintenance training provides initial, recurring and advanced proficiency, qualification, or certification skills needed by a technician to perform duties in their primary Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), Civilian Job Series, or equivalent. Maintenance training includes combat and sortie generation skills not normally integrated into peacetime operations (such as, munitions handling, and external fuel tank build-up, hot refueling). Maintenance training carries an equal priority with the operational training mission. For maintenance training policy and guidance, refer to AFI 36-2650, Maintenance Training and MAJCOM supplements. 1.10. (AMC) Maintenance Training. ARC maintenance personnel in associate units should refer to their MAJCOM supplements as required for training guidance. 1.11. Modification Management. A modification proposal is a recommendation to change the operation, use, or appearance of AF equipment. Modifications (temporary, permanent, or safety) to AF aircraft or equipment are expressly prohibited without PM approval. Note: PM is used in this publication as defined in AFPD 63-1, Integrated Life Cycle Management. Refer to AFI 63- 101/20-101, for modification management procedures.

responsibility of every member of the unit. All personnel are responsible for ensuring accuracy and completeness. 1.12. (AMC) Maintenance Information Systems (MIS). Abbreviations may be used as long as it does not alter the content.

1.12.1. Units use the approved MIS for their assigned weapon system. 1.12.2. Serial numbers will be documented in the MIS for all serially-controlled and tracked assemblies that are identified by an asterisk in the Work Unit Code (WUC) or Logistics Control Number (LCN) manual IAW TO 00-20-2.

1.13. General Safety Guidance. Maintenance personnel are exposed to a large variety of hazardous situations, machinery, equipment, and chemicals. Most hazardous situations can be avoided by following approved procedures, asking for assistance when needed, and using all required personal protective equipment (PPE).

1.13.1. Safety “Knock It Off” and Risk Management. Due to the inherent danger to life, limb, and property associated with maintenance operations, personnel are empowered to terminate an operation or situation which they perceive is unsafe or too dangerous. When supervisors or crew leaders become task-focused, junior personnel are often better able to assess the danger; however, deferring to the experience and judgment of the supervisor or crew leader, they may choose to remain silent, missing an opportunity to break the mishap sequence chain. Maintenance commanders and supervisors are responsible for fostering a culture in their units so that a simple, but recognizable “audible” from anyone can prevent a potential mishap. Note: See AFI 90-802, Risk Management, and AFPAM 90-803, Risk Management (RM) Guidelines and Tools for additional information. 1.13.2. Visitors. Unit Commanders shall not permit visitors to operate any AF equipment unless they are qualified to operate such equipment and are doing so in the performance of their assigned official duties. (T-1). Visitors will not be allowed in the flightline area if munitions operations are present IAW AFMAN 91-201, Explosive Safety Standards. (T-1).

1.14. Duty Shifts and Rest Periods. MXG/CC or equivalent will establish minimum requirements that ensure units (home station or deployed) maintain an equitable distribution of supervision (Officer and Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO)) across all on-duty shifts in their supplement to this AFI. (T-2).

1.14.1. During normal operations, maintenance personnel are scheduled for duty based on a 40-hour work week. Maintenance personnel duty hours are aligned to provide optimal mission support. 1.14.2. Personnel will not be scheduled for more than 12 hours of continuous duty time. (T- 1). Duty time begins when personnel report for duty and ends when their supervisor releases them. Time spent in exercise or contingency deployment processing lines and in-transit counts toward the total duty day. Exception: MXG/CCs are the final approval authority for duty time extensions exceeding the 12-hour limit up to a maximum of 16 hours. Note: Aircraft or detachment commanders assume this responsibility in Temporary Duty (TDY)/travel status. 1.14.2. (AMC) CRG/CC is the approval authority for duty time extensions exceeding 12- hour limit up to maximum of 16 hours. CRE commanders may assume this responsibility while deployed.

25 AFI21-101_AMCSUP_JBMDLSUP 29 MARCH 2021

1.14.3. Commanders and supervisors will provide a rest period after each shift. (T-1). A rest period is a block of time that gives a person the opportunity for 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep in a 24-hour period. Note: This rest period also applies during exercises or inspections. 1.14.4. Personnel will not handle, load or perform maintenance on nuclear weapons, conventional munitions, or egress explosives beyond a 12-hour continuous duty period. (T-1). This requirement may not be waived for exercises or inspections; however, the 12-hour continuous duty period may be exceeded for shift turnover or administrative actions only and will be avoided to the maximum extent possible. The MXG/CC or equivalent may waive this requirement during advance defense readiness conditions, actual emergencies as defined in DoD Directive 3150.02, Department of Defense Nuclear Weapons Surety Program, or to resolve an unexpected event (such as disabled vehicle, Weapons Storage and Security System fault, hoist failure). 1.14.5. In alert force or standby duty situations where facilities are available for resting, established norms may be exceeded. Adjust rest periods to allow for 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. 1.14.6. Commanders and supervisors will ensure individuals are afforded adequate duty rest periods and breaks to prevent fatigue or thermal injury. (T-1). Stop anyone if fatigue may jeopardize safety. In all cases, aircraft commanders or supervisors ensure aircraft maintenance personnel are not required to perform duty when they have reached the point of physical or mental fatigue rendering them incapable of performing their assigned duties safely and reliably. 1.14.7. MAJCOM Commanders will assume the risk for any Flying Crew Chief (FCC) deviations from normal duty shifts, rest periods, and exceedance of the 16-hour maximum duty day. MAJCOM Commanders will publish risk-mitigation procedures in order to meet critical mission requirements.

1.14.7.1. (Added-AMC) FCC duty day will be managed in accordance with detailed guidance in Chapter 11 (T-2).

1.15. Communications. Commanders shall develop communication plans according to AF mission requirements. (T-2). See Chapter 11 for detailed communication requirements.

1.15.1. Effective maintenance accomplishment requires the ability to efficiently and effectively communicate across all facets of the maintenance operation. Communication technology (government issued Portable Electronic Devices (PED), Portable Maintenance Aid (PMA), radios, cell phones, computers, wireless internet) must be available to expedite personnel, equipment, material, and maintenance data throughout the maintenance complex. (T-2). 1.15.2. MAJCOMs will publish guidance for the use and control of personalcommunications devices (personal cell phones, tablets and computers) on the flightline, in munitions areas, hangars, and other industrial work areas as required to mitigate cyber risk and ensure compliance with cyber and communication AFI requirements relevant to their operational environments.

1.15.2.1. (Added-AMC) Personal (non-government issued) electronic and communication devices (e.g., smart phones, cell phones, tablets, laptops, personal fitness

devices, portable music/video players, electronic games) possessed on the flight line, munitions maintenance areas, hangars, and (or) other industrial work areas will only be used for official/authorized business. Personal electronic and communication devices will not be used while actively performing maintenance or as eTools (T-2). This restriction does not apply to personnel performing maintenance management duties (e.g., Pro Super, Expediter), or official duties while TDY.

1.15.2.2. (Added-AMC) Personnel will also comply with restrictions in TO 00-25-172, AFMAN 91-201, AFI 91-207, AFI 31-218, AFMAN 33-282, and aircraft and equipment TOs (T-2). Base instructions may dictate additional restrictions. 1.15.2.3. (JBMDL) Use of personal communication devices while driving on the airfield is strictly prohibited.

1.15.3. Unit Commanders will enforce procedures that prohibit the introduction of government or personal cellular, personal communications system, Radio Frequency (RF), Infrared (IR) wireless devices, and other devices such as cell phones and tablets, and devices that have photographic or audio recording capabilities into areas (for example, rooms, offices) where classified information is stored, processed, or discussed IAW AFMAN 17-1301, Computer Security (COMPUSEC). (T-1). Coordinate waiver requests with the applicable Approving Official (AO), and ensure adherence to Certified TEMPEST Technical Authority (CTTA) requirements IAW Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 8100.02, Use of Commercial Wireless Devices, Services, and Technologies in the DoD Global Information Grid (GIG) written approval by the AF CTTA IAW AFI 16-1404, Air Force Information Security Program, NIST SP 800-53A Revision 4, Assessing Security and Privacy Controls in Federal Information Systems and Organizations, Building Effective Security Assessment loans, and the Enterprise Authorizing Official (AO) IAW AFI 31-101, Integrated Defense (ID) and AFMAN 17-1301. (T-1).

1.16. Maintenance Repair Priorities. Maintenance repair priorities are listed in Table 1.2 This does not prohibit the Production Superintendent (Pro Super), in coordination with the Maintenance Operations Center (MOC), from changing the maintenance repair priority when warranted. During tasked Operational Plan (OPLAN) or operational exercise, the pre-planned maintenance flow determines the job sequence. The maintenance repair priority and the Logistics Readiness Squadron (LRS) delivery priorities (listed in Air Force Handbook (AFH 23-123V, Materiel Management Reference Information) are normally identical. Raising or lowering maintenance repair priorities does not necessarily require a corresponding change in the LRS delivery priority. However, the Pro Super may authorize the use of a less responsive LRS delivery priority.

(T-1).

6.7.9. Units will grade their MSEP evaluations using objective ratings based on the following five-tier rating system:

6.7.9.1. Outstanding: 95-100% (T-1). 6.7.9.2. Excellent: 90-94.99% (T-1). 6.7.9.3. Satisfactory: 80-89.99% (T-1). 6.7.9.4. Marginal: 70-79.99% (T-1). 6.7.9.5. Unsatisfactory: 0-69.99% (T-1). 6.7.9.6. Inspections and evaluations performed (such as, PE, SI, QVI) are rated “Pass/Fail”. Exception: Unless otherwise directed by AFMAN 21-200 and AFI 21-204 for Nuclear Weapons PEs and Certification Program. 6.7.9.7. Ratings are calculated by dividing the total number of inspections passed by total completed. For example, QA inspects 10 aircraft preflights with the following results: 9 “passes” and 1 “failure”. Divide the total “passes” by the total inspections (9/10=0.90) 90 percent for an “Excellent” rating.

6.7.9.7.1. Deduct 0.5 percentage points from overall percentage grade for each TDV, DSV, and UCR. For example, a squadron earns an overall rating of 90 percent, “Excellent”, however, QA observed 4 TDVs and 3 DSVs. Multiply the sum (7) by 0.5

8.6.1.4.1. The 9-digit EID must be placed on the outside of dispatchable CTKs. (T-1). Tools located inside the tool box may be marked with less than 9-digits but must contain the 4-digit WWID and will have identifying character(s) that ties the tool back to the CTK. (T-1). For example, tools inside an assigned dispatchable CTK “U6JG00001” may be marked “U6JG1.” Units may affix non-metallic barcode labels on tools to prevent re-etching as long as the use of the tool and its work environment does not normally result in excessive damage to the label making it unreadable. 8.6.1.4.2. (Added-JBMDL) Refer to Table 8.1 for JBMDL WWID Listing. 8.6.1.4.3. Tools will be marked with the most current EID. (T-1). 8.6.1.4.4. All previous CTK identifiers will either be removed or marked out (this does not include PMEL markings). (T-1). 8.6.1.4.5. Small tool sets and/or items that cannot be marked as described in Paragraph 8.3.6.6 above (such as drill bits, allen wrenches in sets, apexes) will be maintained in a container marked with the EID and an identifying character(s) that ties the tool back to the CTK along with the number of tools contained. (T-1).

8.6.1.4.5.1. The container is counted as one of the items. 8.6.1.5. MXG/CCs may require use of the EID in addition to AFTO Form 66, TMDEBar Codes (Polyester Film), for TMDE routinely (example, once per week) dispatched from a work center or use of the AFTO Form 66 alone. 8.6.1.6. For items that physically or mechanically check tolerances that require calibration, do not etch, or stamp an EID in any manner that will affect calibration or the ability to calibrate. (T-1).

8.6.1.6.1. If marking is in question consult TO 00-20-14 and/or PMEL to validate applicable marking criteria.

Chapter 9

MATERIEL MANAGEMENT SUPPORT

9.1. General. Material management plays a critical role in optimizing mission generation capabilities. Although assigned to LRS, all DMS personnel must be integrated into daily mission generation operations both at home station and deployed. The critical nature of direct interaction between maintenance and materiel management activities at the point of maintenance provides units direct access to materiel management SMEs to accurately identify, communicate, acquire or disposition materiel management support necessary to maximize combat capability. MXG/CC and MSG/CC will coordinate to ensure direct mission generations support focuses on readiness and the unit’s ability to execute daily and deployed flying operations simultaneously. (T-1). This Chapter, coupled with AFI 23-101, provides the minimum materiel management support requirements necessary to provide the best possible opportunity for success in meeting mission generation requirements. The AF has consolidated materiel management support under the AF Sustainment Center. The AF Sustainment Center provides fleet-wide supply support to all AF weapon systems and leverages consolidated repair facilities and ALCs capability to optimize weapon system availability. 9.2. Decentralized Materiel Support. Decentralized Materiel Support personnel coordinate maintenance and materiel management actions and manage supply transactions for the MXG. The duty location for DMS personnel is the applicable maintenance unit as agreed upon by the MXG and MSG Superintendent. Personnel rotations, as determined by the MSG Superintendent, will be accomplished with consideration of operational, career development, and training requirements. (T-1).

9.2.1. In units with Decentralized Materiel Support personnel, the LRS Superintendent exercises control and career-field development opportunities for Decentralized Materiel Support (2S0XX) personnel. (T-1). 9.2.2. In units/work centers directly supported by Decentralized Materiel Support personnel, the Logistics Readiness Squadron Materiel Management Flight is responsible for ensuring materiel management support roles and responsibilities listed are completed IAW 23-series publications. 9.2.2. (AMC) AMC units, with the exception of 725 AMS, do not have UMD authorized DMS personnel. AMS FSL personnel will perform DMS responsibilities outlined in AFI 23- 101 (T- 3). 9.2.3. LRS Superintendent will ensure complete DMS coverage of MXG duty periods, to include weekend duty. (T-1). 9.2.4. At a minimum, DMS personnel will provide the following support functions to the maintenance unit: monitor and track assets in the repair cycle, resolve supply support problems, and report aircraft parts status and changes in base level repair capability to maintenance supervision. (T-1).

9.2.4.1. Decentralized Materiel Support personnel also support maintenance in processing issue requests, researching sources of supply, entering manual requisitions (part number only), updating exception code lists, and resolving other peculiar maintenance supply problems. (T-1).

9.2.4.2. DMS personnel will manage processes, in addition to those previously described, such as parts ordering, backorder review and validation, Readiness Spares Packages, and TNB. (T-1).

9.3. Supply Discipline. Supply discipline is the responsibility of all military and civilian personnel regardless of grade or position. Personnel at all levels need to ensure the practice of good supply discipline IAW AFI 23-111. 9.4. Readiness Spares Package Review. Maintainers play a critical role in the annual Readiness Spares Package review process. This role includes active maintenance participation in the base level validation process conducted by the LRS and their MAJCOM during the annual Readiness Spares Package pre-review process in preparation for the Weapon System Program Manager final review. Close maintenance-materiel management collaboration is essential to ensure RSPs are properly sized to support contingency maintenance requirements. See AFMAN 23-122 for further details. 9.5. Bench Stock. Flight CCs/SUPT and/or Section NCOICs/Chiefs will determine the contents of their bench stock IAW qualification criteria in AFMAN 23-122. (T-1). Examples of bench stock items include: nuts, bolts, cotter keys, washers, resistors, capacitors, light bulbs, sealants and batteries. Bench stock levels are managed and based predominantly on consumption. Monthly and semi-annual bench stock listings are provided by the LRS/DMS. A thorough review of these listings is extremely important to ensure that bench stock supports the mission efficiently and economically.

9.5.1. Bench stock assets are organizationally purchased and therefore organizationally owned. Appointment of DMS personnel as bench stock monitors must be agreed upon by the applicable Squadron Superintendents. 9.5.2. Mark bins containing 50 percent or less of the authorized quantity to facilitate monthly inventories. (T-1). Do not include items coded TCTO, unacceptable for AF use and critical in bench stock. Controlled Item Code S and C may be in bench stock with MAJCOM approval. Other controlled Item Codes are authorized with written approval from Unit Commander. See AFMAN 23-122 for additional information. 9.5.3. Work center supervisors will:

9.5.3.1. Semi-annually complete a bench stock joint review with the Customer Support Liaison Element, Materiel Control. (T-1).

9.5.3.1.1. During these reviews, special emphasis needs to be given to items with no demands in the past year and items with excessive quantities not supported by demands. The continuance of stocking such items is the exception and not the normative process. See AFMAN 23-122 for further details.

9.6. Consumable Readiness Spares Package. The Consumable Readiness Spares Package process provides requirement and asset visibility, has automated transfer and deployment procedures, has the capability to provide the correct priority and project-coded replenishment requisitions, and eliminates redundant requirements. Additionally, Consumable Readiness Spares Package procedures provide MAJCOMs with a standard process to support consumable item requirements during contingency operations. Refer to AFMAN 23-122 for Consumable Readiness Spares Package procedures and options.

Clearly identify items as “Operating Stock” and label them with noun, national stock number or part number, unit of issue, and shelf-life as applicable. 9.9. Work Order Residue. Work order residue includes expendable bit/piece items left over from maintenance work orders or bench stock deletions. Store work order residue near/adjacent to bench stock items, if practical, but do not mix them together. Ensure excesses are consolidated for turn- in to LRS at least annually. Clearly identify items as “Work Order Residue” and label them with noun, national stock number or part number, unit of issue, and shelf-life as applicable. Control all work order residues used on or around aircraft, uninstalled engines, and AGE. 9.10. Adjusted Stock Levels. Adjusted stock levels are used when the demand level or consumption is inadequate to support the requirement. A single occurrence of a mission limiting status is not sufficient reason to establish an adjusted stock level but should result in a LRS/materiel management activity review of demand data for accuracy. The using work center, with assistance from LRS/materiel management activity, will prepare the request IAW AFMAN 23-122 and provide adequate justification (such as, seasonal materiel requirements, long lead-time items, infrequent use components that cause an NMC condition and result in a new procurement or excessive lead-time to restock). Route the request through the applicable Squadron Operations Officer/MX SUPT for approval prior to submitting to LRS/materiel management activity. Using work centers will maintain a master file of approved adjusted stock level items and follow-up on all requests until completed. (T-1). 9.11. Shelf-life Items. Using work centers will control the quantity and inspect (Type I and Type II) shelf-life items kept in unit bench stock, operating/shop stock and work order residue IAW AFMAN 23-122. (T-1). Personnel managing bench, shop, or operating stocks will:

9.11.1. Identify serviceable shelf-life items/locations with a colored and/or highlighted label that clearly states the items expiration date. (T-2). 9.11.2.

MUNITIONS POLICY AND WEAPONS LOAD CREW PROGRAM

10.1. AF Munitions Policy. AF munitions policies are contained in AFMAN 21-200 and AFMAN 21-201. AF nuclear munitions policy is contained in AFI 21-204.

10.1.1. Live and inert missiles (or electrical simulators) of the same type, for example Captive Air Training Munitions with Air to Air must not be loaded or flown together on an aircraft for any purpose. (T-2). Live and inert (to include training or practice) bombs must not be loaded in/on the same dispenser/rack or flown on an aircraft load together. (T-2). Any request to deviate from or waiver to this policy must be coordinated through the WWM, and must be submitted via official message to the MAJCOM Munitions Division, Weapons Safety, and Operations Weapons and Tactics/Training Divisions. (T-2). Note: Units that fly rocket pods will not fly TP rockets with any combination of live rockets. Note: With Program Office/Seek Eagle approval, configurations with inert Air-to-Ground Missiles (AGM) can be flown with all types of bombs and rockets. The MAJCOM Munitions Division is the sole approval authority for these deviations/waivers. Test organizations may load and fly live and inert munitions on the same aircraft for test missions only, as long as the flight profile is IAW an approved test directive that has been through a Safety Review Board process and flight clearance through the applicable Program Office/Seek Eagle office has been properly obtained. 10.1.2. Request for waiver of, or deviation to, this policy will include as a minimum: (1), an Operational Risk Assessment report and proposed controls to mitigate or eliminate hazards to personnel, damage to aircraft and support equipment or inadvertent employment of live ordnance, and (2), a signed copy of the Test Requirement Plan, Test Plan, or Concept Employment Plan. (T-2). Approved requests will remain valid only for the event requested and will not exceed 60 days. (T-2).

10.1.3. Captive Air Training Munitions. Safety pins/streamers for arming keys/safe-arm handles on Captive Air Training Munitions may be removed for daily training/flying operations provided positive control and accountability is maintained for these items.

10.1.3.1. Captive Air Training Munitions AIM-9M arming handles will be permanently removed. (T-1). These components are only removed for foreign or dropped object prevention. 10.1.3.2. Any Captive Air Training Munitions missile used for exercises, Load Crew Training and inspections should be configured to the maximum extent possible with all safety devices and components to mirror the parent tactical munitions.

10.2. Unit Committed Munitions List (UCML), Test/Training Munitions List (TTML). Operational units will use UCMLs. (T-1). Test/Training units will use TTMLs unless they require a UCML, for example North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Committed. (T- 1). The UCML/TTML is a list of Primary Munitions (PM), Support Munitions (SM), and Limited- use Munitions (LM) necessary to meet unit operational/test/training requirements and is published IAW this instruction. The list of PM will not include more than 10 individual munitions or Munitions Family Groups (MFG) combined per mission, design, and series (MDS) aircraft assigned. (T-2). The UCML/TTML also specifies the minimum certified

load crews required to meet unit requirements. MAJCOMS may supplement UCML/TTML processing, coordination and appendix requirements.

10.2.1. As a minimum, UCML/TTML’s will be updated annually to identify all munitions tasked and/or required to support test/training or OPLANs, DOC statements, and Ready Aircrew Program tasking memorandum. (T-1). Additional munitions may be included on the UCML/TTML as SM or LM munitions if required by the unit or designated by the MAJCOM (A4M performs this in the ANG) to support test, training, or deployment. The UCML/TTML is the base document for aircrew and load crew training munitions forecasts, authorizations and operations. Units will start their UCML/TTML validation in July, and have a coordinated input to the MAJCOM Munitions Division in August. (T-2). MAJCOMs will supply approved UCML/TTML to the units in September.

10.2.2. Unit changes to the UCML/TTML will be justified by Wing Weapons and Tactics, coordinated and processed through the WWM, Munitions Squadron/Flight, MXG/CC and OG/CC before sending it to higher headquarters and MAJCOM. (T-2). 10.2.3. Standard Conventional Load lists are not part of the UCML/TTML. They are stand- alone documents. 10.2.4. The WWM determines the minimum number of certified load crews depicted on the UCML and recommends approval to the MXG/CC. The minimum number should be based on supporting the initial/lead UTC requirements. Additionally, follow-on UTCs tasked simultaneously with the initial/lead UTC will be considered to determine minimum load crew requirements. The WWM determines the number of load crews depicted on the TTML as required to meet training unit syllabus and/or test unit mission requirements. Note: WWM will specify in writing the minimum number of load crews required in aggressor units when no UCML/TTML exists. (T-1).

10.3. Weapons Load Crew Training Program (WLCTP). The USAF WLCTP ensures all weapons load crew members obtain and maintain the certification/qualification and proficiency needed to effectively meet safe, secure, and efficient munitions loading/unloading operations supporting their unit’s mission. The objective of the WLCTP is to develop and maintain a high state of mission readiness for immediate and effective generation/employment of munitions loaded aircraft. WLCTP provides the basis for accomplishing peacetime missions while maintaining critical wartime capability. The WLCTP is managed by Weapons Standardization.

10.11.2.4.1. For integrated loads, the evaluator may decertify on all munitions or a specific munition loaded. When the same rating is not applied to all munitions loaded during an integrated load, the load crew records will be annotated accordingly. (T-2). 10.11.2.4.2. A failure for safety or reliability does not result in complete retraining/recertification for the loading task. At the discretion of the evaluator, sub- task retraining or thorough critique may be used to satisfy retraining/recertification requirements.

10.12. Proficiency Review Period. Immediately following initial certification, crews will load one-third of all munitions monthly for a minimum of three months, after which the LSC or lead crew will recommend to the WS SUPT to place them in the normal bi-monthly evaluation cycle (NA for short tour locations).

10.14.2. Load crews failing to accomplish semi-annual evaluations on all munitions will be decertified unless exempted IAW provisions in this Chapter. (T-1). 10.14.3. If an integrated load is accomplished as the SAE (such as, AIM-9, -120), document the SAE accordingly.

10.14.4. There is no need to document both SAE and MRPL. 10.14.5. Certified Load Team Chiefs may perform SAEs in any position provided they load under the supervision of LSC or lead crew using inert conventional training munitions only. This requirement applies at home station only. 10.14.6. No SAE credit will be given to those individuals during evaluations unless loading in the position for which they are certified. (T-1). This enables units the flexibility to evaluate remaining crew members when a member may not be available to form a full crew and will only be used as necessary. 10.14.7. The letter "E" will be placed after the date for the semi-annual evaluation regardless of rating. (T-1).

10.15. Documenting Load Crew Certification/Decertification/Qualification. 10.15.1. The LSC will manage load crew certifications, qualifications, SAEs (quarterly evaluation (QE) for short tour locations), and MRPLs by means of the WLCMT or MAJCOM approved equivalent. (T-1).

a directive. Implemented from a higher echelon of command (MAJCOM/CC) when conditions in multiple aircraft, engines, missiles, munitions, or related installed flight equipment create a sufficient risk to personal injury or equipment damage which warrant fleet grounding until the matter can be properly investigated and resolved.

11.4.1.1. Communication of a grounding, or a potential grounding event (TCTO, OTI, PM event) to weapon systems operating in a deployed environment and/or under the authority of an operational command must follow the grounding procedures outlined in AFI 11-401 and 63-101/20-101. (T-1).

11.4.1.1.1. Units must not directly communicate home station requirements to its deployed forces but provide communication through their respective MAJCOM. (T-1). Note: This section does not apply to conditions which are clearly limited to the affected unit/base (such as, lost tool, fluid contamination, aircraft and equipment damage of known origin, or other strictly local event). In these circ*mstances, the affected unit follows the impoundment procedures specified in Chapter 7.

11.4.2. Initial Investigation. The owning MXG/CC or equivalent will direct QA to develop a local OTI IAW TO 00-20-1 and this instruction. (T-1).

11.4.2.1. The OTI will require an inspection of a representative number of systems or units (aircraft, engines, missiles, or munitions) of the same mission and design to determine if the condition exists on other aerospace equipment within the wing’s assigned aircraft/systems or equipment. (T-1).

11.4.2.1.1. If initial sampling indicates the discrepancy is widespread and has the potential for personal injury and/or further equipment damage, the MXG/CC will discuss aircraft grounding with the WG/CC and forward a recommendation to the MAJCOM. (T-1).

11.4.2.2. If there is no repair or corrective action specified in technical data, QA will also submit a technical assistance request through the MAJCOM to the appropriate weapon system program manager IAW TO 00-25-107 or equivalent process. (T-1).

CANN is the authorized removal of a specific assembly, subassembly, or part from one weapon system, system, support system, or equipment end item for installation on another end item to satisfy an existing supply requisition and to meet priority mission requirements with an obligation to replace the removed item. Weapon systems, support systems, or equipment include: aircraft, missiles, drones, RPA, uninstalled engines, uninstalled engine modules, aircrew and/or launch crew training devices, Communications-Electronics equipment, AGE, TMDE, serviceable uninstalled pods, and guns. 11.13.3. Responsibilities. CANN Authorities (CA) will be approved by the MXG/CC or equivalent and tracked in the MIS and SCR (see Table 11.1 (T-1).

11.13.3.1. CA will be SNCOs, officers or civilian equivalents. (T-1). These personnel are typically Pro Supers. 11.13.3.2. Those who are authorized to approve CANNs will not further delegate their responsibility. (T-1). 11.13.3.3. (Added-AMC) Refer to AMCI 21-108 for guidance on CANNs for AMC and AMC-gained aircraft away from home station under 618 AOC control (T-2). 11.13.3.4. (Added-AMC) CA will coordinate with the MXS Pro Super (if applicable) when they determine the need to CANN a part from an aircraft undergoing MXS managed maintenance (T-2). 11.13.3.5. (Added-AMC) MXG/CC, MXG/CD or MXG Superintendent will be the approval authority for all CANN requests originating from an AOR (T-2).

11.13.4. If an assembly is cannibalized to satisfy a condition caused by lack of bits and pieces (such as, washers, nuts, and bolts), the assembly is counted as a CANN and the bits and pieces are considered transfer actions. Bits and pieces removed from an end item (without removing the assembly) for installation on another end item are considered individual CANN actions.When a required part cannot be delivered and installed on time, the CA may approve the CANN of parts before the initiation of CANN documentation (such as, Red Ball maintenance). The CA will give this approval only after confirming the part is not readily available in LRS, TNB, forward supply points, or back shops. (T-1).

11.13.4.1. The CA will notify the appropriate supply activity to change the “mark-for” components in the document number. (T-1). 11.13.4.2. The CA will also ensure complete documentation is accomplished for each CANN action. (T-1).

11.13.5. When TCIs, serially-controlled items, items affecting compliance of a TCTO, or other components with inspection requirements that align to specific hourly, calendar, or event limits are considered for CANN, the CA will coordinate with PS&D or EM to ensure adequate time remains on the item to justify the CANN and to ensure appropriate records are updated. (T-1).

11.13.5.1. If the CANN action takes place, the performing work center will update the MIS and notify PS&D or EM. (T-1).

11.13.6. Installed engines are not end items; installed engines are considered a LRU (similar to a radar component, gun, seat, canopy, radio, multifunction display unit).

11.13.6.1. If a functional LRU is removed from one end item to put on another end item to fill a “hole” which was caused by a supply requisition, (the requisition could be against the LRU), then this is considered a CANN.

11.13.7. Restrictions. 11.13.7.1. Egress system component CAD/PAD cannibalization actions are considered "High-Risk" and should not be performed unless priority aircraft are involved (example, higher headquarters/alert status), or lack of ready equipment will impede mission accomplishment.

11.13.7.1.1. To ensure system integrity and validation of the explosive CAD/PAD listing, cannibalization of egress explosive components and/or seats will not be accomplished without the approval of the MXG/CC or MXG/CD. (T-3). 11.13.7.1.2. After cannibalization actions, Egress Red X discrepancies in the aircraft AFTO Form 781As will not be cleared until verification that CAD/PAD S/N content matches the S/N content entries in the MIS. (T-1). 11.13.7.1.3. Only (2A6X3) Egress personnel will accomplish this action. (T-1).

11.13.7.2. CANN actions involving parts from ABDR aircraft, AF Museum Aircraft, Maintenance Training Devices, GITA, TAA, or DLADS will not be accomplished without authorization from the Program Office. (T-1).

11.13.7.2.1. Parts will not be removed from static display/AF Museum Aircraft except as authorized by AFI 84-103. (T-1). 11.13.7.2.2. If the part is approved for CANN, it must not be put into service until all necessary inspections (such as, NDI, pressure checks, operational checks, TCTOs) have been accomplished using specific guidance from the item manager to ensure proper serviceability. (T-1).

11.13.7.3. Units will not CANN parts from aircraft possessed by AFMC (B or D PIC) without first coordinating through the MAJCOM functional manager who will request approval from the applicable PM. (T-1). 11.13.7.4. An aircraft that has been extensively cannibalized will not be launched on an overseas or cross-country sortie/mission on the first flight following CANN rebuild without the owning MXG/CC approval.
