The Army Maintenance System MAC - Continued
Column (4) Maintenance Level. Column (4) specifies each level of maintenance authorized to perform each
function listed in column (3), by indicating work time required (expressed as man hours in whole hours or decimals)
in the appropriate subcolumn. This work time 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 varies at different maintenance levels, appropriate work time figures are to 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 time in addition to the time required to perform the specific tasks identified for the maintenance
functions authorized in the MAC. The symbol designations for the various maintenance levels are as follows:
C Crew maintenance

L Specialized Repair Activity (SRA)
H Below depot maintenance
D Depot maintenance
The "L" maintenance level is not included in column (4) of the MAC. Functions to this level
of maintenance are identified by work time figure in the "H" column of column (4), and an
