|Publication Date:||22 August 2005|
This pamphlet applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard of the United States, the U.S. Army Reserve, and contractors supporting operations in a contingency environment. It applies to non tactical (commercial) wheeled vehicles and non-Army activities that have or support Army equipment and watercraft. It also applies to all air traffic control equipment, including tactical and U.S. Army-maintenance air traffic control and navigational aid facilities designated for use in the National Airspace System by the Federal Aviation Administration. During mobilization, procedures in this publication can be modified to support policy changes as necessary.
The purpose of the Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) is to assist commanders at all levels in managing equipment use and operations, equipment maintenance, and repair operations and to maintain equipment to the Army standard as outlined in Army Regulation (AR) 750-1. It also provides the foundation for materiel condition status reporting (MCSR) as outlined in AR 700-138 and controlling equipment as outlined in AR 600-55.
a. TAMMS is a comprehensive management information system, consisting of automated information components and records, manually maintained components and records, and a central Army database at Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA). This central database is the Maintenance Module of the Logistics Integrated Database and is used by all Army commands.
b. TAMMS uses a set of time-proven maintenance processes, engineering practices, and industry standards. The TAMMS processes and maintenance records enable commanders to manage equipment readiness, availability, and durability, based on the level of resources provided by higher command. Resources include the application of time, trained personnel, tools, test equipment, and funds.
