B–1.  GENERAL.   Continued (2)  Aviation  Intermediate  Maintenance  (AVIM)  provides  mobile,  responsive  “One-Stop”  maintenance  support. (Maintenance functions which are not conducive to sustaining air mobility will be assigned to depot maintenance). AVIM may perform all maintenance functions authorized to be done at AVUM. Repair of equipment for retum to user will empha- size  support  or  operational  readiness  requirements.  Authorized  maintenance  includes  replacement  and  repair  of  modules/ components and end items which can be accomplished efficiently with available skills, tools, and equipment. AVIM esta- blishes the Direct Exchange (DX) program for AVUM units by repairing selected items for return to stock when such repairs cannot be accomplished at the AVUM level. The AVIM level inspects, troubleshoots, performs diagnostic tests, repairs,  adjusts,  calibrates,  and  alines  aircraft  system  modules/components.  AVIM  units  will  have  capability  to  determine the serviceability of specified modules/components removed prior to the expiration of the Time Between Overhaul (TBO) or finite life. Module/component disassembly and repair will support the DX program and will normally be limited to tasks requiring cleaning and the fabrication of seals, fittings, and items of common manufacture. Airframe repair and fabrication of parts will be limited to those maintenance tasks which can be performed with available tools and test equipment. Unser- viceable repairable modules/components and end items which are beyond the capability of AVIM to repair will be eva- cuated to Depot Maintenance. AVIM will perform aircraft weight and balance inspections and other special instructions which exceed AVUM capability. Provides quick response maintenance support, including aircraft recovery and air evacua- tion, on-the-job training, and technical assistance through the use of mobile maintenance contact teams. Maintains autho- rized  operational  readiness  float  aircraft.  Provides  collection  and  classification  services  for  serviceable/unserviceable  ma- terial, Operates a cannibalization activity in accordance with AR 750-50. (The aircraft maintenance company within the maintenance battalion of a division will perform AVIM functions consistent with air mobility requirements and conserva- tion of personnel and equipment resources. Additional intermediate maintenance support will be provided by the support- ing  nondivisional  AVIM  unit.) B-2.  USE  OF  THE  MAINTENANCE  ALLOCATION  CHART a. The Maintenance Allocation Chart assigns maintenance functions to the lowest category of maintenance based on past experience and the following considerations: (1)  Skills  available. (2) Work time required. (3) Tools and test equipment required and/or available. b. Only the lowest category of maintenance authorized to perform a maintenance function is indicated. If the lowest maintenance category cannot perform all tasks of any single maintenance function (e.g., test, repair), then the higher main- tenance level(s) that can accomplish additional tasks will also be indicated. c. A maintenance function assigned to a maintenance category will automatically be authorized to be performed at any  higher  maintenance  category. d. A maintenance function that cannot be performed at the assigned category of maintenance for any reason may be evacuated to the next higher maintenance category. Higher maintenance categories will perform the maintenance functions of lower maintenance categories when required or directed by the commander that has the authority to direct such tasking. e. The assignment of a maintenance function will not be construed as authorization to carry the related parts or spares in stock. Information to requisition or otherwise secure the necessary repair parts will be as specified in the associated Re- pair Parts and Special Tools List (RPSTL). f. Normally there will be no deviation from the assigned level of maintenance. In cases of operational necessity, main- tenance functions assigned to a maintenance level may, on a one-time basis and at the request of the lower maintenance level, be specifically authorized by the maintenance officer of the level of maintenance to which the function is assigned. The special tools, equipment, etc. required by the lower level of maintenance to perform this function will be furnished by the maintenance level to which the function is assigned. This transfer of a maintenance function to a lower maintenance level does not relieve the higher maintenance level of the responsibility for the function. The higher level of maintenance will provide technical supervision and inspection of the function being performed at the lower level. g. Changes to the Maintenance Allocation Chart will be based on continuing evaluation and analysis by responsible technical personnel and on reports received from field activities. B-2
