returning to zero those age measurements (hours/miles, etc. ) considered in classifying Army
B-3. EXPLANATION OF COLUMNS IN THE MAC, SECTION Il.
a. Column 1, Group Number. Column 1 lists functional group code numbers, the purpose of which is
to identify maintenance significant components, assemblies, subassemblies, and modules with the next
higher assembly. End item group number shall be "00,"
b. Column 2, Component/Assembly. Column 2 contains the names of components, assemblies,
subassemblies, and modules for which maintenance is authorized.
c. Column 3, Maintenance Function. Column 3 lists the functions to be performed on the item listed
in Column 2. (For a detailed explanation of these functions, refer to paragraph B-2. )

This figure represents the active time required to perform that maintenance function at the indicated level of
maintenance. If the number or complexity of the tasks within the listed maintenance function vary at different
maintenance levels, appropriate work time figures will be shown for each level. The work time figure
represents the average time required to restore an item (assembly, subassembly, component, module, end
item, or system) to a serviceable condition under typical field operating conditions. This time includes
preparation time (including any necessary disassembly/assembly time), troubleshooting/fault location time,
and quality assurance/quality control time in addition to the time required to perform the specific tasks
identified for the maintenance functions authorized in the Maintenance Allocation Chart. The symbol
