  8. The NAMP is founded upon the three-level maintenance concept and is the authority governing management of O-level, I-level, and D-level aviation maintenance. What is the purpose of these?
    It provides the management tools required for efficient and economical use of personnel and material resources in the performance of maintenance. It also provides the basis for establishing standard organizations, procedures, and responsibilities for the accomplishment of all maintenance on naval aircraft, associated material, and equipment.
  9. What is the O-level of the three-level maintenance concept describe?
    Maintenance which is performed by an operating unit on a day-to-day basis in support of its own operations. The O-level mission is to maintain assigned aircraft and aeronautical equipment in a full mission capable status.
  10. What is the I-level of the three-level maintenance concept describe?
    The I-level maintenance mission is to enhance and sustain the combat readiness and mission capability of supported activities by providing quality and timely material support at the nearest location with the lowest practical resource expenditure.
  11. What is the D-level of the three-level maintenance concept describe?
    Performed at or by FRC sites to ensure continued flying integrity of airframes and flight systems during subsequent operational service periods. D-level maintenance is also performed on material requiring major overhaul or rebuilding of parts, assemblies, subassemblies, and end items. It includes manufacturing parts, modifying, testing, inspecting, sampling, and reclamating. FRC sites support O-level and I-level maintenance by providing engineering assistance and performing maintenance beyond their capabilities.
  12. The two types of maintenance described in the NAMP are rework and upkeep. What is rework?
    Rework is the restorative or additive work performed on aircraft, aircraft equipment, and aircraft SE at FRCs, contractors' plants, and such other industrial establishments designated by TYCOMs.
  13. The two types of maintenance described in the NAMP are rework and upkeep. What is upkeep?
    Upkeep is the preventive, restorative, or additive work performed on aircraft, equipment, and SE by operating units and aircraft SE activities.
  14. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is turnaround?
    Conducted between flights to ensure the integrity of the aircraft for flight, verifies proper servicing, and detects degradation that may have occurred during the previous flight. Good for 24 hours, provided that no flight occurs during this period and no maintenance other than servicing was performed.
  15. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is daily?
    Conducted to inspect for defects to a greater depth than the turnaround inspection. It is valid for 72 hours without flight or major maintenance and the aircraft can be flown for 24 hours before another daily is needed as long as it does not surpass the 72 hour time limit.
  16. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is special?
    This inspection is a scheduled inspection with a prescribed interval other than daily or phase. The intervals are specified in the applicable PMS publication and are based on elapsed calendar time, flight hours, operating hours, or number of cycles or events, for example, 7, 28 days; 50, 100, 200 hours; 10, 100 arrestments; or 5,000 rounds fired. In some cases, aircraft special inspections contain within them engine inspection requirements. They are referred to as combined airframe and engine special inspections.
  17. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is conditional?
    Conditional maintenance requirements are unscheduled events required as the result of a specific overlimit condition, or as a result of circumstances or events which create an administrative requirement for an inspection.
  18. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is phase?
    This inspection divides the total scheduled maintenance requirement into smaller packages, or phases of the same work content. These are done sequentially and at specified intervals.
  19. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is acceptance?
    Performed at the time a reporting custodian accepts a newly assigned aircraft or support equipment from any source and on return of an aircraft from SDLM or other major depot level maintenance.
  20. Under the upkeep maintenance category what is transfer?
    Performed at the time a reporting custodian transfers an aircraft or support equipment.
  21. Rework maintenance is a more intensive type of maintenance it is performed at D-Level. What is reliability centered maintenance (RCM).
    A process to ensure that assets continue to do what their users require in their present operating context. The military adopted the RCM from the commercial aviation industry in the mid-1970s. As a result we now have different types of rework maintenance modeled after the RCM concept such as the Aircraft Service Period Adjustment (ASPA) and Periodic Maintenance Interval (PMI).
  22. What is the definition of management?
    The efficient attainment of objectives
  23. What is the definition of maintenance?
    All actions taken to retain material in a serviceable condition or to restore it to serviceability
  24. What is the definition of maintenance management?
    The actions necessary to retain or restore material or equipment to a serviceable condition with a minimum expenditure of resources
  25. What is the main difference between maintenance control and production control?
    The level of maintenance at which the duties are performed. Maintenance control is at the O-level and production control is I-level. Requirements for being qualified to perform the duties of maintenance and production control differ in the schools required to be qualified for the duties prescribed in the NAMP.
  26. What are two of the most critical aspects in naval aviation?
    The release of an aircraft safe for flight and the acceptance of the aircraft. Both of these functions carry a great deal of importance and go hand in hand to ensure the safety of the aircrew and the aircraft.
  27. What is the purpose of the Monthly Maintenance Plan (MMP)?
    The purpose of the MMP is to provide scheduled control of the predictable maintenance workload, for example, inspections, transfer or receipt of aircraft, and compliance with TDs. By scheduling predictable maintenance, the capability for accomplishing unscheduled work can be determined. In addition, requirements for SE, material, manpower, and other factors affecting the maintenance operation can be determined in advance of actual need. It is prepared and distributed by the 25th of each month at the O-level and the 1st of each month at I-level.
  28. What is the Aircraft Logbook?
    The logbook is a hard bound record of equipment, inspections, scheduled removal items, and installed equipment. Each aircraft logbook shall have a record of rework, major repairs, flight and operational data; also included in the logbook is a record of maintenance directives affecting the aircraft, its components, and accessories.
  29. What are the differnet sections of each logbook?
    • Non-aging record
    • Flight time
    • Inspection records
    • Repair/Rework
    • Technical Directive
    • Miscellaneous History
    • Preservation and De-preservation record
    • Installed Explosive Devices
    • Inventory Record
    • Assembly Service Record
    • Equipment History Record
    • Scheduled Removal Components cards (SRCs)
    • Aviation Life Support System records
    • Aeronautical Equipment Service Records (AESRs)
  30. What is the concept of Quality Assurance (QA)?
    The QA concept is fundamentally the prevention of the occurrence of defects. The concept embraces all events from the start of the maintenance operation to its completion and is the responsibility of all maintenance personnel. The achievement of QA depends on prevention, knowledge, and special skills. The principle of prevention is that it is necessary to preclude maintenance failure. This principle extends to safety of personnel, maintenance of equipment, and virtually every aspect of the total maintenance effort. Prevention is about regulating events rather than being regulated by them.
  31. What is a QA's role in day-to-day activities?
    They are responsible for conducting and managing the department's QA effort.
  32. What is a Quality Assurance Representative (QAR)?
    The maintenance personnel assigned to QA are known as QARs, They certify that the work involved has been personally inspected by them; it has been properly completed, and is in accordance with current instructions and directives.
  33. What is a Collateral Duty QAR (CDQAR)?
    Although CDQARs are assigned to production work centers, they function in the same capacity as QARs and must meet the same qualifications. CDQARs may be assigned on a temporary or permanent basis.
  34. What is a Collateral Duty Inspector (CDI)?
    CDIs assigned to production work centers are to inspect all work and comply with the required QA inspections during all maintenance actions performed by their respective work centers. They are responsible to the QA Officer when performing such functions. CDIs will spot check all work in progress and will be familiar with the provisions and responsibilities of the various programs managed and audited by QA.
  35. What is the purpose of the Central Technical Publications Library (CTPL).
    It provides a central source of up-to-date information for use by all personnel in the performance of their work, and it is an excellent source of reference information to facilitate personnel training and individual improvement.
  36. What is the role fo QA within Maintenance Department/Division Safety?
    QA is assigned overall responsibility for Maintenance Department safety; however the intent is not to conflict with any portion of the activity's overall safety program but to assist in coordination of the total safety effort. QA’s duties within the departmental/divisional safety scope are to disseminate safety posters/literature, report all hazards/mishaps/ unsafe practices within the department, conduct safety meetings at least monthly, and to coordinate with the Aviation Safety Officer.
  37. What does the Quality Assurance Audit Program do?
    Audits serve as an orderly method of identifying, investigating, and correcting deficiencies on a scheduled and unscheduled basis. The CSEC is a tool used by QA during the audits that provides a standardized objective measurement tool to conduct audits.
  38. What is a special audit?
    Conducted to evaluate specific maintenance tasks, processes, procedures and programs. They may be requested by the work center at any time or when a new work center supervisor is assigned. Copies of audits are held for one year.
  39. What is a workcenter audit?
    Conducted semi-annually to evaluate the overall quality performance of each work center. All areas of the work center are evaluated including personnel, monitored and managed programs, logs and records, licenses, etc..
  40. What is the purpose of program audits?
    To evaluate specific programs, providing a systematic and coordinated method of identifying deficiencies and determining adequacy of and adherence to technical publications and instructions. QA shall audit the programs, at a minimum, annually.
  41. Why is SE Misuse/Abuse important?
    Proper operation of SE is the key to safe and efficient aircraft/equipment maintenance. Improper use of SE has resulted in personnel injury, excessive ground handling mishaps, repair, replacement costs, and reduced operational readiness. All personnel operating SE must be fully knowledgeable of operational characteristics, safety precautions, emergency procedures, and be qualified/licensed for designated T/M/S.
  42. What is the purpose of Aircraft Confined Space Program (ACSP)?
    The objective of the ACSP is to ensure a safe environment is maintained when working on aeronautical equipment fuel cells and tanks. Activities not having a sufficient demand for entry authority (EA) services use the services of the supporting FRC site EA.
  43. What role does QA play in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Reporting Program (NAMDRP)?
