Show Answers:

  1. What functional requirements of the Naval
    Aviation Maintenance Program(NAMP) are satisfied by the organizational
    maintenance activity's NALCOMIS?
    • To improve mission
    • capability, improve aircraft maintenance and supply support. To improve upline
    • reporting to satisfy Department of Defense program requirements, and modernize
    • management support.
  2. What functional requirements of the NAMP are satisfied
    by the intermediate maintenance activity's NALCOMIS?
    • Provides the capability to
    • manage maintenance and supply functions and processes by allowing system users
    • to enter, collect, process, store, review, and report information required by
    • the organization.
  3. Describe the purpose of the following organizational
    maintenance activity's NALCOMIS subsytems:

    a. Maintenance
    b. Flight
    c. Logs/records
    d. Personnel
    e. Assets
    f. Data analysis
    g. Reports
    h. Ad hoc query
    • a. Maintenance
    • Collects and processes
    • maintenance related data and provides data to other subsystems on the data
    • base.
    • b. Flight
    • Collects and processes flight
    • related data.
    • c. Logs/records
    • Establishes and maintains
    • configuration profiles for engines, aircraft, and any Aeronautical Equipment
    • Service Record (AESR) records.
    • d. Personnel
    • Reserved for future use. Can
    • be used to monitor qualifications.
    • e. Assets
    • Processes inventory and
    • inspection criteria for support equipment and Aviation Life Support Systems
    • (ALSS).
    • f. Data analysis
    • Approves or disapproves
    • Maintenance Action Forms (MAF's), Naval Flight Records (NAVFLIRS), for upline
    • submission.
    • g. Reports
    • Selects and produces various
    • reports.
    • h. Ad hoc query
    • Creates user-specific needed
    • or requested reports.
  4. Describe the purpose of the following intermediate
    maintenance activity's NALCOMIS subsystems:

    a. Maintenance activity
    b. Configuration status accounting
    c. Personnel management
    d. Asset management

    e. Material requirement processing
    f. System support

    g. Data off-load/on-load
    h. Technical publications
    • a. Maintenance activity Allows maintenance personnel to document maintenance
    • actions, order parts, maintain individual component repair list data, and
    • request inquiries. Actual documentation requirements such as validation
    • specifications, form descriptions, and field entry requirements are contained
    • in this and other instructions. Any NALCOMIS IMA specific documentation
    • requirements are covered in the detailed description of each function or
    • screen.
    • b. Configuration status accounting Contains 3 sections: Aircraft Engines, Support
    • Equipment, and Technical Directives.
    • c. Personnel management Contains information on assigned military and
    • civilian personnel. The information is used for workload management and to
    • verify authorization for discrepancy signoffs, QA inspections, MAF reviews, and
    • other job related functions.
    • d. Asset management
    • Contains the functions required to maintain inventory and utilization data for
    • Support Equipment and IMRL items.
    • e. Material requirement processing Covers material requirements generated by maintenance
    • customers at the O-level and I-level. These requirements include repairable
    • components, consumable repair parts, and indirect material support items.
    • f. System support
    • Permits the user to see a list of the on-screen messages that are waiting
    • action. It uses on-line functions to review the requests for reports, and to
    • release them for subsequent printing.
    • g. Data off-load/on-load Used to generate files, reports, and documents for
    • data off-load/on-load. These items accompany temporarily transferred Support
    • Equipment and personnel and permanently transferred SE, either to or from
    • organizations.
    • h. Technical publications provides an automated technical library tracking
    • system.
  5. Explain the purpose of a Maintenance Action Form(MAF)
    as applied to NALCOMIS documentation.
    • Used to document maintenance
    • actions to on-equipment maintenance actions. Used to document maintenance as
    • preventative maintenance, such as corrosion prevention and treatment. Also used
    • to document the removal/installation, and processing of a repairable component
    • or item to an Aviation Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) or On Site
    • Storeroom (OSS).
  6. Explain the following blocks on a MAF to be utilized
    as data fields in NALCOMIS:

    a. Work Unit Code (WUC)
    b. Job Control Number (JCN)
    c. Maintenance Action Form (MAF) Control Number (MCN)
    d. Discrepancy block
    e. Corrective action block
    f. When Discovered (W/D) code
    g. Type Equipment (TYPE EQUIP) code
    h. Type Maintenance (T/M) code
    • a. Work Unit Code (WUC)
    • Identifies the system or
    • subsystem being worked upon.
    • b. Job Control Number (JCN)
    • A 9, 10, or 11-character
    • code. Serves as a base for Maintenance Data Reporting (MDR) and maintenance
    • control procedures.
    • c. Maintenance Action Form (MAF) Control Number (MCN)
    • A 7-character alpha/numeric
    • code assigned by the system that serves as a base for Maintenance Data Reports
    • and maintenance control procedures. Tracks MAF's through the maintenance
    • process.
    • d. Discrepancy block
    • A narrative description of a
    • reported discrepancy.
    • e. Corrective action block
    • A narrative description of
    • the corrective action taken on a discrepancy.
    • f. When Discovered (W/D) code
    • A single alpha-character,
    • indicating when the need for maintenance was discovered.
    • g. Type Equipment (TYPE EQUIP) code
    • Identifies the type of
    • equipment being worked on.
    • h. Type Maintenance (T/M) code
    • A one-character alpha or
    • numeric code used to describe the type work being performed.
  7. What is a Special Maintenance
    • Used to screen the levels of
    • security. It determines which screens or parts of the NALCOMIS an individual
    • has access to.
  8. Discuss the security considerations that apply to an
    individual's NALCOMIS log in and password.
    • a. Protect your password. b.
    • Do not share, loan, or write down your password. c. Protect passwords from
    • unauthorized viewing. d. Do not leave your terminal or computer while logged
