This standard establishes the technical content, style, and format requirements for all technical manuals (TMs) for major weapon systems and their related systems, subsystems, equipment, assemblies, components, shop replaceable units (SRUs), and line replaceable units (LRUs). This standard provides requirements for operator and maintenance technical manuals, depot maintenance work requirements (DMWRs), national maintenance work requirements (NWMRs), preventive maintenance daily (PMD), preventive maintenance services (PMS), phased maintenance inspection (PMI), destruction of Army materiel to prevent enemy use manuals, battle damage assessment and repair (BDAR) manuals, preventive maintenance checklists (PMCs), lubrication orders (LOs), ammunition DMWRs, software manuals, and general maintenance manuals. The requirements are applicable for all maintenance levels/classes through overhaul (depot) including DMWRs and NMWRs. The requirements can be used to develop TMs in paper, page-based manuals. For purposes of this standard, electronic technical manual (ETM) is synonymous with page-based technical manual.
MIL-STD-40051-2 prescribes requirements applicable to various types of technical publications, and the revisions for these publications.
