listed in this column.
(4) Procedures Column. This column contains the check or service procedure.
(5) Equipment Is Not Ready/Available If: Column. The reason why an equipment will be classified as unable
to perform its mission will be given in this column. An entry in this column will:
(a) Identify conditions that make the equipment not ready/available for readiness reporting purposes.
(b) Deny use of the equipment until corrective maintenance has been performed.
b. Routine Checks. Checks like equipment inventory, cleaning, dusting, washing, checking for frayed cables,
storing items not in use, covering unused receptacles and checking for loose nuts and bolts are not listed in your PMCS.
They are things you should do anytime you see they must be done. If you find a routine check like one of these listed in
your PMCS, it was listed because other operators reported problems with this item.
Table 2-1. Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services
