MANUALS, TECHNICAL: WORK PACKAGE STYLE, FORMAT, AND COMMON TECHNICAL CONTENT REQUIREMENTS; GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR (WORK PACKAGE CONCEPT)
|Publication Date:||26 November 1997|
This specification prescribes the general style, format, and common technical content requirements for the preparation of technical manuals using the work package (WP) concept. This specification should be used to prepare aircraft weapon systems, aeronautical equipment, airborne weapons/equipment, and related support equipment technical manuals (in page format) when logistics support is to be provided.
The type of manual is a combination of the technical content and the assigned level(s) of maintenance to be covered. The maintenance level(s) Beneficial comments (recommendations, additions, deletions) and any pertinent data which may be of use in improving this document shall be addressed to: Commander, Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, Code 414100B120-3, Highway 547, Lakehurst, NJ 08733-5100, by using the Standardization Document Improvement Proposal (DD Form 1426) appearing at the end of this document or by letter.
covered is identified by using a prefix for the applicable functional element(s), e.g., "Intermediate and Depot Maintenance Instructions with IPB". The following types of manuals represent the majority of NAVAIR technical manuals being developed in WP format:
WP organizational level manuals may be either a single manual or a series of manuals covering organizational level operations and maintenance and its associated illustrated parts breakdown (IPB) data. Organizational level information shall normally be defined as "on" aircraft or equipment tasks arranged on a systems concept. "Off" aircraft organizational level tasks include component and support equipment repair, manufacturing, and assembly.
WP intermediate and depot level manuals should be prepared as either individual maintenance level coverage or combined maintenance level coverage manuals, and associated IPB data, based on their application and the approved maintenance plan or logistics support analysis (LSA). The documents will normally cover "off" aircraft or "off" equipment tasks arranged by weapons repairable assembly (WRA). That is, component or assembly maintenance shall be covered instead of the system concept used at organizational level.
WP format manuals may consist of any combination of level coverage and associated IPB data, predicated on the approved maintenance plan or the LSA, facility requirements, support equipment required, and the volume of information to be presented. Combined maintenance level manuals are most practical when maintenance requirements at each level are fairly consistent, the same support equipment is applied, the same facility requirements are used, and when the overall data volume permits. Organizational level normally shall not be combined with intermediate or depot level data.
