Chapter 1
The Army Central Logistics Data Bank

Section I
Introduction

1-1. Purpose

This pamphlet provides guidance necessary for preparing, generating, collecting, and distributing logistics management data in the Army Central Logistics Data Bank (ACLDB). The ACLDB, often referred to as the Army Master Data File (AMDF) operates in an environment in which major Army logistics systems use the latest state-of-the-art equipment and system techniques. This system is the link between the wholesale and retail levels. The output of data to all levels of the Army depends on the needs of the user.

1-2. Reference

Required and related publications and prescribed and referenced forms are listed in appendix A .

1-3. Explanation of abbreviations and terms

Abbreviations and special terms used in this pamphlet are explained in the glossary .

1-4. Data source

Logistics data are provided to the ACLDB from sources listed in a through e below. The data are collected and maintained in the ACLDB to serve as the Army central point for issuing logistics data from the wholesale level to retail level.

a. Commodity Command Standard System (CCSS).

b. Army communications security (COMSEC).

c. Army COMSEC Commodity, Logistical, and Accounting Information Management System (ACCLAIMS).

d. Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS).

e. Catalog management data file-expanded.

1-5. Distribution of data

U.S. Army Materiel Command (USAMC) Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) can provide the ACLDB and logistics management data in one of the following modes:

a. Single source distribution. This is a monthly ACLDB broadcast of change notice transactions distributed to authorized recipients. The change notices output by magnetic tapes are broadcast during each month and contain data for new items or changes in data elements of existing items with a subsequent first-of-the-month effective date. The non-service user application is also updated through this process.

b. Management data distribution. This is a uniform automated method by which Army activities, recorded at Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) will be sent logistics management data changes for those items. These changes are provided, by automatic digital network (DDN), continuously before the effective date.

c. Data set. The data set provides ACLDB customers the capability to automatically receive monthly change data records on magnetic tape. The records contain only those data elements required by the customer's automatic data processing (ADP) system and are arranged in a format that best serve systems processing. There are three identifying document identifier codes (DICs) within the data sets. An item added to the ACLDB will be identified with DIC CPA. The DIC CPC will appear when there has been a change to one or more of the data elements of the referenced national stock number (NSN). The DIC CPD indicates an NSN is being deleted from the ACLDB and no future data will be provided. The DIC CPM is a source of supply (SOS) change to the data segment.

d. Automatic return items list (ARIL). This list contains items in a critical worldwide stock position. Excesses and unserviceables must be returned to CONUS depots without waiting for disposition instructions.

e. Standard Army Intermediate Level Supply Subsystem (SAILS) Catalog management data file (CMDF) maintenance system. The SAILS CMDF maintenance process provides updated CMDF masters distributed monthly to SAILS installations and defense mega centers (DMC). Tailored SAILS CMDF change notice and interchangeable and substitutable (I&S) transactions are provided monthly with the CMDF master. Additionally, a modified CMDF is provided each installation and (DMC) where Force Modernization fielding support is required. Specific data elements selected from the item data, item identification, packaging and the I&S segments of the ACLDB are reformatted into the SAILS CMDF for distribution as a monthly replacement file to SAILS activities on magnetic tape.

f. Special requests and file extracts. To receive special products for logistics management interrogation by mass data retrieval, (item data segment, packaging segment, and so forth), Army activities and Government contractors will send a letter to Commander, USAMC, LOGSA, ATTN: AMXLS-ML, Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-7466. Friendly foreign governments will send a letter to Commander, U.S. Army Security Assistance Command, ATTN: AMSAC-O, New Cumberland, PA 17070-5096, and provide the following:

(1) Products desired.

(2) Format requested.

(3) Tape specification.

(4) As of effective date.

(5) Point of contact.

(6) Contract number and expiration date (Government contractors).

g. AMDF Interrogation and Retrieval System (AIRS). This system provides authorized users with a uniform method to retrieve item intelligence and logistics management data from the ACLDB on an "as required" pull basis.

h. Surveillance subsystem. This subsystem provides AMDF file originators with data element incompatibilities existing within or between all segments of the AMDF and also between interfacing files and systems, that is, CCSS, FLIS, and so forth. This subsystem also provides a means of measuring the AMDF effectiveness for each Army file originator. Subsequent changes to applicable data values enhance the AMDF integrity and understanding.

(1) AMDF Discrepancy Reporting System. This system processes suspect AMDF data element values, as reported by AMDF data users on an NSN-by-NSN basis, and distributes these challenges to the applicable AMDF file originator for action. The alleged discrepancy is posted to an automated suspense file, and a periodic status is provided to the user on AMDF file originator action until the problem is resolved.

(2) AMDF Tailored Distribution System (ATDS). This system is similar to single source distribution. Under this system, the recipient receives monthly stock number changes for only those stock numbers in which the recipient is interested.

1-6. Special information

Department of the Army activities may use DA Form 4511 (Request for Logistics Catalog Data and/or Information) to communicate with LOGSA. For use of this form, refer to AR 708-1 .

Section II
Army Master Data File

1-7. Overview

a. The AMDF is a multi-segment file including both current and historical management data for Army used or managed items. It provides for generating, collecting, and issuing logistics management data to activities at all levels performing logistics functions essential to the acquisition, storage, control, reporting, maintenance, distribution and disposal of material. LOGSA distributes AMDF data by magnetic tape, electronic message, compact disk, an interrogation and retrieval system.

b. The types of AMDF segments are as follows:

(1) Item data segment. This segment includes an item data record and when appropriate, a unit measurement quantity or unit of issue conversion record containing current supply management data about cataloged NSNs, and medical management control numbers (MCNs) authorized for Army use.

(2) Item identification segment. This segment provides nomenclature (abbreviated or extended) for the NSN or medical MCN in each item data record, and identifies adopted items of materiel and Army reportable items assigned a line item number (LIN).

(3) Packaging file. This file provides either the details of cleaning, preserving, and packaging an item or will refer to the packaging data sheet, specification, or instructions that contain such data. Also, this segment contains unit pack weight, unit pack cube, unit pack size data, and a hazard code to identify an item as hazardous.

(4) Freight segment. This segment provides freight classification data and Military Standard Transportation and Movement Procedures (MILSTAMP) data for descriptive or reference type NSNs for routing materiel shipments within continental United States (CONUS) and outside continental United States (OCONUS).

(5) An I&S segment. This segment provides item relationships and I&S data.

(6) History segment. This segment provides a means for determining if NSNs or MCNs were formerly assigned to a current item of supply or the identifying numbers that apply to former item of supply.

(7) Equivalent item segment. This segment provides data to enable recipients to satisfy requirements with items that have identical physical and performance characteristics, but differ in unit quantity or unit of issue.

(8) Special Army data segment. This segment provides logistics management data for cataloged NSNs.

(9) Medical user data segment. This segment provides logistics management data for supply category of materiel 8 (medical) items.

Chapter 2
ACLDB Segments

Section I
Item Data Segment

2-1. Provisions

a. The item data segment provides the management data necessary to control an item from the time it enters the system until it is obsolete or is ready for disposal. This segment provides for the establishment of, and changes to, Army common, peculiar and unique data elements. It allows for communication of this data between the Army item manager, wholesale depots, and operational forces required at various levels for supply, financial and inventory management controls, asset reporting and requisition processing.

b. The Army PICA/SICA, LOGSA and Army using activities establish changes and communicates logistics management data for each Army used or managed NSN in the formats prescribed in this section.

2-2. Special considerations

The Army PICA/SICA establishes an item data record for each Army used or managed NSN. The Army PICA/SICA establishes a unit measurement quantity record for each NSN assigned a nondefinitive unit of issue. LOGSA will broadcast but will not retain a unit of issue conversion record on file for each NSN whose unit of issue is changed.

2-3. Item data, unit measurement quantity, and unit of issue conversion record procedures

a. The Army PICA/SICA submits to LOGSA, an item data record for each Army used or managed NSN as shown by table 2-1 . An Army PICA/SICA not operating under CCSS may submit an item data change record to change an Army unique data element, as shown in table 2-2 .

b. LOGSA will file and retain in the AMDF and then distribute unit measurement quantity data for each Army used or managed NSN assigned a nondefinitive unit of issue. Unit measurement quantity (UMQ) record procedures are shown at table 2-3 .

c. LOGSA distributes a unit-of-issue conversion record for each Army used or managed NSN whose unit of issue changes as shown by table 2-4 .

30-32 Source of supply code (See table 3-37 .)
33-36 DODIC/subsistence usage management code (SUMC) Blank or appropriate code per table 3-41 .
37-38 Reserved For LOGSA use only.
39-73 Nomenclature Limited to 35 characters maximum except for LIN and subsistence and medical items. Consists of basic noun nomenclature, modifiers (if applicable), or item identifying characteristics that set the item apart from similar items. Standard format and essential characteristic requirements will be developed and used by item manager to ensure uniformity within groups. LIN item nomenclature must be same as description given in SB 700-20 .
Records 01 and 02 will contain the long nomenclature (64-character maximum). Record 03 will contain the short nomenclature (21-character maximum).
Examples are as follows:
a. SCREW, MACHINE, STEEL 1/4 x 28, 31/2 LG.
b. GASKET, RUBBER 1/2 IN. ID x 5/8 OD x 1/4 THK.
c. RESISTOR, FXD, WW900 OHMS1W, PORM 1.
d. CAPACITOR, FXD, MICA-910PF, PRM 5 PCT.
e. PAINT, OIL, GREEN, LUSTERLESS 1 QT CAN.
f. PLIERS, DIAGONAL, CUTTING 71/2 IN. LG.
g. FILE, HAND, SWISS CUT NO. 2, 3, IN. LG. (See note .)
74-79 Line item number Blank or appropriate 6-digit LIN assigned by LOGSA in SB 700-20.
80 Reserved For LOGSA use only.

Notes:
. For LIN items, when the nomenclature in record 01 does not exceed 35 characters, record 02 is not required. LIN Y99990 will use, as the nomenclature, the word NONE in positions 39-42 of record 01, and record 03 will contain the short nomenclature.

2-6. Special considerations

The Army PICA/SICA will submit item identification records as follows:

a. LINs. Nomenclature for a stock number recorded in the item data record and assigned a LIN cannot exceed three trailer records. Records 01 and 02 contain the nomenclature starting in position 39 with a 64-character maximum (35 in record 01, 29 in record 02). When the nomenclature does not exceed 35 characters, then record 02 is not required, but record 03 containing the short nomenclature (21 characters maximum) is always required.

b. Subsistence and medical items without a LIN. The Army PICA/SICA will submit records 01 and 03 to LOGSA for each Army used or managed subsistence or medical NSN without a LIN. The Army PICA/SICA will submit record 02 if the nomenclature starting in record 01 exceeds 35 positions.

c. All other NSNs. The Army PICA/SICA will submit to LOGSA, record 01 for each Army used or managed NSN.

d. The Department of Defense identification code (DODIC). DODIC is a 4-position alphanumeric code assigned to some items in Federal supply groups 13 and 14. It is added to positions 33 through 36 of record 01.

Section III
Packaging File

2-7. Overview

The DOD Packaging Data System is a standard system for developing, recording, and disseminating packaging data. The system will result in the DOD presenting a single face to industry on packaging method selection, packaging requirements, and documentation. Data entered and stored in this system will be readily retrievable, and the inter-service exchange of packaging data will be vastly improved. All material to be packaged will be classified into one of the three following types of items:

a. Common items. The Army PICA/SICA will submit all packaging segment records to LOGSA for common items (that is, items for which complete packaging details can be specified by predetermined coding).

b. Selective items. The Army PICA/SICA will submit the applicable packaging segment records to LOGSA for selective items (that is, items for which predetermined packaging is not appropriate yet entry of coded packaging requirements with up to 57 positions of supplemental in-the-clear instructions adequately describes the complete packaging requirement).

c. Special items. The Army PICA/SICA will submit the applicable packaging segments to LOGSA for special items (that is, items that require sketches, drawings, or narrative type packaging procedures due to their complexity, fragility, weight, or other considerations).

2-8. Packaging file data elements

The Army PICA/SICA will submit packaging file records to LOGSA ( tables 2-6 through 2-10 ) for the following data elements:

a. Card indicator code.

b. Cleaning and drying procedure.

c. Cushioning and dunnage material code.

d. Commercial and Government entity code.

e. Container NSN.

f. Hazardous code.

g. Drawing or part number.

h. Item type storage code.

i. Intermediate container code.

j. Level of protection.

k. Level A packing requirement code.

l. Level B packing requirement code.

m. Level C packing requirement code.

2-9. Priority for developing packaging requirements

The Army PICA/SICA will develop packaging data for each Army used or managed NSN per the following priorities:

a. Priority I (stocked items). Items with the following acquisition advice codes:

(1) A-service regulated.

(2) B-National inventory control point (NICP) regulated.

(3) C-services managed.

(4) D-DOD inventory materiel management (IMM) stocked and issued.

(5) E-other service managed, stocked and issued.

(6) G-General Service Administration (GSA) IMM stocked and issued.

(7) H-direct delivery under a central contract.

(8) K-centrally stocked for overseas only.

(9) M-restricted requisitions, major overhaul.

(10) P-restricted requisition.

(11) R-restricted requisition.

(12) S-restricted requisitioning, other service funded.

(13) Z-insurance/numeric stockage objective item.

b. Priority II (nonstocked items). Items with the following acquisition advice codes:

(1) F-fabricate contract/schedule.

(2) I-direct ordering from a central contract/schedule.

(3) J-not stocked, long lead-time.

(4) L-local purchase.

(5) N-restricted requisitioning, disposal.

(6) Q-bulk petroleum products, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) managed.

(7) T-condemned.

(8) V-terminal item.

(9) W-restricted requisitioning, special instructions apply.

(10) X-semiactive item, no replacement.

(11) Y-terminal item.

c. The Army PICA will submit packaging data to LOGSA, as shown by tables 2-6 through 2-10 above for each Army managed NSN. On receipt of packaging records, LOGSA will edit, validate and forward records to FLIS total item record for filing in the segment W. LOGSA will submit packaging data to the FLIS as the registered recipient of Army-interest packaging data.

2-10. Optional procedure indicator codes

a. Enter "A" if packaging is governed by a specification or standard other than those referenced in the preservative method code column 29-30 or by an SPI. Show the appropriate number in the packaging reference area, card number 1.

b. Enter "M" if all packaging data are mandatory for compliance and no substitution is permitted. Deviation from any of these elements will have prior approval of the buying activity. Fast packs will be included in this category.

c. Enter "O" if an option can be exercised as to the submethod and packaging materials to be used. However, the basic preservation method will be retained, requirements as indicated in supplemental data will be complied with, and unit package dimensions will not be increased. There will be no increased cost to the Government and equal or better protection will be given the item. Prior approval of the buying activity is not required under these conditions.

d. Enter "E"to indicate that options can be exercised as to the submethod and the packaging materials to be used. In such cases, the options that may be exercised must be indicated in supplemental date. However, the basic preservation method will be retained and unit package dimensions will not be increased. There will be no increased cost to the Government and equal or better protection will be given the item. Prior approval of the buying activity is not required under these conditions.

e. Enter codes "F" or "R" for special options as they apply to use of polyurethane foam-in-place for other than SPI items and will supplement the coded data. The codes relate to MIL-P-26514 and are defined as "F" for flexible (type II, class 2, grade C) and "R" for rigid foam-in-place (type II, class 1). These codes will sometimes require stipulation of supplemental data. If foam-in-place requires a larger container than other normally acceptable packaging (conventional), the foam-in-place container requirements will be coded in place of the conventional data. Limitations and freedoms indicated by optional procedure code O also apply to these codes, except that two maximum container sizes may be specified; one for foam-in-place and another for other options. The second container size will be expressed as supplemental data.

f. Enter "P" if an SPI governs the packaging but permission is granted to use polyurethane foam-in-place as specified on the SPI only when the SPI pack is not available.

Section IV
Freight Segment

2-11. Overview

This segment provides guidance for input, upkeep, and output of transportation data on cargo content. These data are used by CONUS traffic management activities to determine freight rates and modes for routing materiel shipments within CONUS/OCONUS.

2-12. Concept

a. The Army PICA will submit freight data to LOGSA as shown by tables 2-11 and 2-12 , for each Army managed, stocked, non-nuclear ordnance NSN.

b. On receipt of DLIS FLIS freight confirmation record, LOGSA will file and retain data in the AMDF and distribute freight data elements as shown in tables 2-11 and 2-12 below.

c. LOGSA will submit freight data to the DLIS FLIS as the registered recipient of Army-interest freight data.

d. Army activities will challenge incorrect or questionable AMDF data by contacting the item manager, either manually or through an automated system.

e. Freight segment records are distributed as follows:

(1) Freight segment change— Management data distribution (MDD)/single source distribution (SSD).

(2) Item data segment (IDS) gain— MDD only.

(3) MDD only; IDS C58 SOS change only)— MDD only.

(4) Freight segment material safety data sheet (MSDS) indicator code change only— MDD/SSD.

2-14. Interchangeable and substitutable segment provisions

This segment provides a way to:

a. Record, maintain, and distribute approved I&S data.

b. Identify stock numbers assigned a LIN.

c. Group by LIN those stock numbers connected with a LIN.

d. Identify national and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) stock numbers for ammunition items that have been assigned a DODAC.

e. Allow recipients of I&S data to satisfy requirements by using all on-hand assets, where possible, and to defer requisitions and prevent needless purchases.

2-15. Special considerations

a. Data for input to the I&S segment may be submitted directly by the file originators, or it will be developed by LOGSA from data received on the third record of CMD transactions or by changes made to the SB 700-20 .

b. The I&S segment includes the following three sections:

(1) Section I, replacement information that is further divided into two parts: part 1, an I& S cross-reference file; and part 2, I&S group file (order-of-use (OOU) file).

(2) Section II, major items, that is further divided into two parts; part 1, major item cross-reference file; and part 2, major item group file.

(3) Section III, ammunition and explosives that is further divided into two parts: part I, stock number to DODAC cross-reference file; and part 2, DODAC group file.

c. Every stock number in the I&S segment must also be in the IDS.

d. As changes and deletions are made to the IDS, necessary changes must be made to the I&S segment.

e. When stock numbers within any I&S group (OOU, LIN, or DODAC) are involved in a materiel transfer, all numbers of the group will be transferred or the group will be dissolved.

f. Whenever deletions (CHK, CJK) from part 1 of sections I and II are processed or the CMD data record of the IDS is deleted with a C37, LOGSA will internally generate and file a history record in the I&S history file.

g. Periodically, LOGSA will review I&S records to detect errors and refer them to the originators for correction. Originators review errors and take corrective action as soon as possible. This LOGSA screening does not relieve the originators from conducting similar reviews to prevent input of errors.

h. Collaborations are as follows:

(1) Section I collaboration will be according to I&S procedures established for the FLIS.

(2) Collaboration of I&S data is not required when the data are obtained from the integrated materiel manager through standardization actions (FLIS segment E) issued by DLIS.

2-16. Procedures for section I, part 1 (I& S cross-reference file)

a. Record format and explanation are shown in table 2-13 below.

b. Input to this file is generated by LOGSA based on information recorded in the CMD record 3 from FLIS.

c. This file depicts stock number relationships by using the authorized I&S segment phrase codes. Every number in this file must contain a phrase code, and relationships containing active phrase codes must reflect a preferred stock number to connect it to the I&S OOU file ( part 2). Cross-reference records containing terminal phrase codes (L, T, or Z) will not appear in the OOU file and for these phrase codes the preferred NSN field will be blank. NICP/service item control center (SICC) must ensure that the preferred stock number in this file is updated when the preferred stock number in the OOU file is replaced by a new stock number.

d. For phrase coded relationships in the file, the described stock number, preferred stock number, and related stock number must have the same unit of issue and the same Federal supply classification (FSC).

e. Records in this file that contain phrase code E must have a reversing G companion record with the same preferred stock number. Records that contain phrase code F must have a reversing 7-companion record, and those with a phrase code S must have a reversing phrase code 3 present on input. Changes to one phrase code in the relationship requires changes to the reversing phrase code.

f. Cross-reference records containing phrase code U (manager interest only) will not be filed in the ACLDB or broadcast to AMDF users. Special requirements, code 4, recorded in the item data segment will satisfy this requirement.

2-17. Procedures for section 1, part 2 (I&S OOU file)

a. Record explanation is shown in table 2-14 below.

b. Input to this file is also generated by LOGSA based on information recorded in the CMD record three.

c. An OOU group consists of two or more described stock numbers that have an I&S relationship with each other. This file is in the preferred stock number order and reflects the following:

(1) NICP/SICC determines preferred stock numbers. This does not mean endorsement or preference for a specific manufacturer's item or product. The preferred stock number is the last item in the group and must be suitable to use in place of any other item in the group.

(2) Nomenclature of the preferred stock number has been eliminated from the OOU file.

(3) The OOU code is a 3-position code comprised of the following two parts.

(a) Subgroup code. The first two positions of the OOU code, indicates whether an item in an I&S family is interchangeable or substitutable with items in the same family having higher OOU values. If the subgroup values are the same, the two items are interchangeable. If the subgroup values are different, the two items are substitutable, with the item having the higher value subgroup code being the preferred item.

(b) Sequence code. The third position of the OOU code indicates the OOU within a subgroup (that is, among interchangeable items). The least preferred item in the subgroup (or the only item, if there is a single NSN in the subgroup) will have an "A" assigned. Sequence codes B, C, D, and so forth, will be assigned to the other interchangeable items in order of preference. The most preferred interchangeable item in the subgroup will have the highest value sequence code.

(4) The subgroup code and sequence code will not be displayed as separate entries, nor will numeric sequence codes be used to identify items unsuitable for issue or use. Items unsuitable for use will no longer be included in I&S families.

(5) The jump-to-code (JTC) denotes an exception to the normal sequence to be followed in the attrition of items within an I&S family. In specific instances, an item cannot be replaced by the next substitutable item as shown by "OOU" designation. In this case, the "JTC" is used to jump to an "OOU"whose "NSN" is a proper substitute. When the "JTC"is applied, it must be recorded against the "NSN" having the highest value sequence code in the subgroup. The JTC value itself must —

(a) Contain a subgroup value at least two greater than that of the "OOU" of the "NSN"it is recorded against.

(b) Be an "A" in the third position.

(c) Reflect an "OOU" recorded in segment H for that service or CIMM.

d. To understand and apply the format and codes in this part correctly, it is essential to make maximum use of authorized substitutes to satisfy Army needs. Tables 2-15 through 2-18 show the most frequent type of I&S group relationships and code assignments

Table 2-15. Interchangeable items (2-way)
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU JTC
1015-00-078-5502 1015-00-342-1133 AAA  
  1015-00-772-7373 AAB  
  1015-00-779-6027 AAC  
  1015-00-078-5502 AAD  

(1) The subgroup code (positions 1 and 2) is the same for each of the four described stock numbers. Since all items are in the same subgroup (AA), they can be freely interchanged.

(2) The sequence code ( position 3) is incremented by one for each item in the family to show the order in which the items will be used. The item coded AAA will be used before the items coded AAB, AAC, AAD. The item coded AAB will be used before the items coded AAC, and AAD and so on for the items coded AAC and AAD.

(3) If described stock number 1015-00-342-1133 is requested and is available, it will be used or issued. If there are no assets available, the next NSN (1015-00-772-7373) will be used or issued and so on until the last family member or preferred NSN is reached. Because these items are interchangeable, NSN 1015-00-342-1133 could be used or issued even though NSN 1015-00-078-5502 is requested and available. (See table 2-16 .)

Table 2-16. Substitute items (1-way progressive)
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU JTC
4935-00-084-8403 4935-00-083-8269 AAA  
  4935-00-084-8404 ABA  
  4935-00-084-8406 ACA  
  4935-00-084-8403 ADA  

(4) The subgroup code for each item is different, AA, AB, AC, and AD and has only a one-way substitution relationship with the other items indicated by the 3-position OOU code.

(5) The OOU code tracks each item to the next, meaning that each item is a substitute for all preceding items, but not the reverse. Code "ABA" is a substitute for "AAA;" "ACA" is a substitute for "ABA"and "AAA"; and "ADA" is a substitute for every other item in the group. However, "AAA" cannot be substituted for "ABA," "ACA," or "ADA;" "ABA" cannot be substituted for "ACA" or "ADA;"and "ACA" cannot be substituted for "ADA."

(6) The sequence code remains the same for each item in this example. Technically, each item is a separate subgroup; therefore, the combined subgroup/sequence code must be used to determine the proper attrition or order-of-use. (See table 2-17 .)

Table 2-17. Substitute items (1-way, one item replaces several)
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU JTC
5120-00-236-2127 5120-00-227-7319 AAA ADA
  5120-00-236-2100 ABA ADA
  5120-00-227-9490 ACA  
  5120-00-236-2127 ADA  

(7) In this group, only item ADA (preferred stock number) is a substitute for the others as indicated by the JTC. Items AAA, ABA, and ACA are not substitutes for each other or the preferred item. OOU codes for items AAA and ABA track each item to itself first, the JTC then directs the user to the preferred stock number as the next suitable substitute. There is no JTC assigned to item ACA, as JTC subgroup value must be at least two greater in value than the subgroup value of the item it is recorded with. Normal OOU progression applies to this item. (See table 2-18 .)

Table 2-18. Combination of substitutable/interchangeable items, with JTC application
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU JTC
6656-00-397-6254 6645-00-111-6019 AAA ADA

  6645-00-882-9799 ACA  
  6645-00-013-5962 ADA  
  6645-00-414-8277 ADB  
  6645-00-727-3014 ADC  
  6645-00-202-1101 ADD  
  6645-00-397-6254 ADE  

(8) This family contains both interchangeable and substitutable items. Whenever this situation occurs, substitutable items will be listed first in the family. The JTC denotes that item ABA cannot be substituted for item AAA and item ACA cannot be substituted for item ABA. The next suitable substitute is item ADA, the first item in the interchangeable subgroup and the continuation of normal OOU progression. Item ADE is the preferred item and will substitute for all others in the family.

2-18. Precautionary measures

The following precautionary measures must be taken by the NICP/SICC when establishing or modifying I&S groups:

a. When applicable, I&S relationships must apply to all known Army uses.

b. When using data presented by an I&S group, substitutes not specified and restricted by the order-of-use codes may be used to satisfy specific applications. When this occurs, interrogations must be done on an individual item basis and substitution authorized only by approval of the requisitioner.

c. The following restrictions apply when establishing I&S groups:

(1) The stock number may appear in one and only one I&S OOU group.

(2) All stock numbers in the same I&S group must have a reasonable cost relationship.

(3) All stock numbers in the same I&S group must have the same unit of issue and the same FSC.

(4) Each I&S family is limited to 50 stock numbers.

(5) All stock numbers must be active and must appear in the IDS.

(6) Preferred and related items must contain the same appropriation and budget activity (ABA) account code. This is required for budget preparation and item accounting.

2-19. Procedures for section II, major items

These records are not on file at LOGSA. LOGSA broadcasts these records in the monthly SSD. The term "major items," as used here is not limited to stock numbers designated as major items by activities according to other Army regulations or directives. Stock numbers assigned a LIN are shown in this section. Data does not reflect authorized I&S data, but does relate stock numbers to the assigned LIN. It also relates the LIN to stock numbers. Data in this section are presented as follows:

a. Part 1, major item cross-reference file.

(1) Table 2-19 shows the format for each NSN assigned a LIN.

(2) The records are based on the LIN or stock number relationship. LOGSA broadcasts these records in stock number sequence to permit cross-reference to the major item group file.

(3) All records reflect a LIN.

(4) All records are generated by LOGSA based on information recorded in SB 700-20 .

b. Part 2, major item group file.

(1) Record explanation is shown in table 2-20 .

(2) LOGSA broadcasts these records in LIN sequence from the records generated in part 1 above. Records so generated are included in the same change notice as the part 1 record from which they were created.

(3) LINs identify generic groups containing items that have common physical and performance characteristics and can satisfy the same operational need. However, some items identified by the same LIN as having the same functional capability are not totally interchangeable. For example, clothing type items due to size, alphabetic flags, and so on are subject to management review to determine supply.

2-20. Procedures for section III, ammunition and explosives

a. Part 1, cross-reference stock number to DODAC file.

(1) Record explanation is shown in table 2-21 .

(2) This file is in stock number sequence to permit cross-reference to the DODAC group file, part 2.

b. Part 2, DODAC group file.

(1) These records are not on file at LOGSA. LOGSA broadcasts these records in the monthly SSD.

(2) Record explanation is shown in table 2-22 .

(3) Records are generated by LOGSA from records input to part 1.

(4) This file is in DODAC sequence to permit cross-reference to part 1 submitted by the file originators.

c. Ammunition and explosive items are not subject to phrase codes (except "A" and "C") and "OOU," because of the differences in production capabilities asset position, asset location, customer location, transportation needs, and so forth. Therefore, phrase codes and I&S group concepts do not apply to this file.

d. Use of DODAC numbers. When ammunition operations are done based on generic description, the entire 8-character code number will be used: For example "1305-A011."

e. Use of NSN and NATO numbers. When ammunition operations are done based on specific items of supply, the 13-digit stock number will be used followed by the second part of the DOD ammunition code number, for example: "1305-00-011-7217-A011."

Section VI
History Segment

2-21. Overview

This segment provides a means for determining the most current identifying number assigned to an item of supply, replacing numbers removed from the supply system, and limited management data for the identifying numbers.

2-22. Section I-item data history (IDHIS)

a. A file of the following types of identifying numbers that are deleted from the AMDF are maintained at the LOGSA:

(1) NSNs.

(2) MCNs as follows:

(a) Medical MCNs.

(b) MCNs that were used in supply transactions now prohibited by AR 708-1, chapter 3 .

b. Army activities will use IDHIS identifying numbers only in publications such as technical manuals, technical bulletins, modification work orders, supply and maintenance letters. Army activities will not use IDHIS identifying numbers in supply transactions, including the support of standard equipment used by U.S. Armed Forces or limited standard or obsolete equipment used by friendly foreign countries in programs controlled by the U.S. Army Security Assistance Center.

c. LOGSA or the AMDF originator will submit a transaction, as shown in table 2-23 below, to correct erroneous records on the IDHIS. For these transactions, LOGSA or the AMDF originator ensures that the effective date is the first of any month, current or past, and that the transaction is compatible with the item data segment. LOGSA will distribute the change to Army users of the AMDF with the next monthly broadcast.

d. The IDHIS is maintained at the LOGSA in two configurations —

(1) A cross-reference file that relates former numbers to the current or last related identifying number. LOGSA maintains and issues this file in identifying number sequence. LOGSA cross-references all identifying numbers deleted from the AMDF with phrase codes "A," "C," "D," or "P" directly to the replacing item.

(2) A current number file that relates the current or last related identifying number to former identifying numbers assigned to the same item of supply.

e. LOGSA and recipients must perform the following to maintain the cross-reference file:

(1) Remove the related number status code from position 68 in all cross-reference records that have in positions 42 through 54 the item data segment record positions 8 through 20 stock number because of processing a group 8 transaction to the IDS.

(2) Create a cross-reference record using phrase code D to reflect the relationship between a cross-reference related number and IDS record number when an IDS transaction activates an NIIN with a FSC different from the FSC of an identical cross-reference related national item identification number (NIIN).

2-25. Special instructions

a. Army activities requiring more information on an item deleted from the AMDF may contact the AMDF originator as determined by the originator code or the first position of the materiel category structure code.

b. The AMDF originator will delete erroneous records from the history segment as shown in tables 2-23 through 2-25 above.

c. LOGSA distributes corrective history segment transactions only to Army activities that have requested to be placed on distribution. LOGSA does not distribute changes based on internal transactions created as a result of update of the active AMDF.

d. If a Army user needs the current number history file, they may create one by resequencing the cross-reference history file.

This segment provides a way to record, maintain, and issue data for stock numbers assigned a phrase code "M" (breakdown into) or "Q" (fabricate or assemble).

2-27. Concept

a. LOGSA will file and retain in the AMDF and then distribute component records, as shown in table 2-26 , for each Army used or managed NSN assigned phrase code M or Q.

b. The Army PICA/SICA ensures that if there is a materiel management action affecting an NSN in the component segment, the necessary transactions are prepared to adjust the component segment.

c. Army users may submit questions about the completeness or accuracy of component segment records to the AMDF originator.

Section VIII
Equivalent Item Segment

2-28. Functions

a. The Army PICA/SICA establishes logistics management data for each Army used or managed NSN that is equivalent to another in physical and performance characteristics, but that differs in unit quantity or unit of issue.

b. Many items in this segment are liquids that are available in different units of issue; for example, pint, gallon, or barrel.

2-29. Concept

a. LOGSA files, retains in the AMDF and distributes equivalent item segment records, as shown in table 2-27 , for each Army used or managed NSN assigned phrase code Y.

b. The Army PICA/SICA ensures that if there is a materiel management action affecting an NSN in the equivalent item segment, the necessary transactions are prepared to adjust the equivalent item segment.

Section IX
AMDF Interrogation and Retrieval System (AIRS)

2-30. AIRS

The AIRS was established to provide a means for retrieving or validating current and historical and logistics management data pertaining to Army managed or used items of supply.

2-31. Concept

a. This system provides item identification and nonquantitative supply management data from the AMDF to authorized recipients of AMDF data. It is used on an as required pull basis to retrieve selected AMDF segments or a specific range of designated data elements. The system also has validation features that allow inputting, comparing, and updating previously retrieved data. Three types of inquiry processing services are available as shown below:

(1) The AMDF segment inquiry.

(2) The selected data inquiry.

(3) The data element validation inquiry.

b. Army users of the AIRS will submit inquiries to LOGSA as shown in tables 2-28 , 2-29 , or 2-30 . Users of AIRS must have an activity inquiry code established or recorded with LOGSA. A request to assign or confirm this code will be sent to LOGSA by a responsible U.S. Government activity. The request must cite the complete address, including the attention line of the participating activity and a point of contact (POC) in the event additional information is required. Also, the request will be submitted by memorandum or message to USAMC Logistics Support Activity, ATTN: AMXLS-MD, Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-7466. On receipt of request/confirmation for activity code, a user's manual describing the system in detail will be sent to the user.

c. Requests for assignment of an activity inquiry code to a friendly foreign government or private contractor must be authorized by a U.S. Government agency. The authorizing agency will be accountable for suspension or cancellation of the assigned code as circumstances warrant, such as national security or the expiration of a Government contract. For control purposes, the first position of the activity code will cite a dollar ($) sign for foreign governments and a pound (#) sign for private contractors.

d. Activities wanting to use DDN as the return media for inquiry replies must coordinate with LOGSA and provide LOGSA with their DDN routing identifier code.

e. LOGSA processes AIRS transactions for those contractors acting as Army agents whose contract states: Information furnished from the AMDF Interrogation and Retrieval System is provided as Government furnished material (GFM).

Section X
AMDF Tailored Distribution System

2-43. Overview

a. The Army users of the AMDF requiring monthly broadcasts of any of the segments authorized by paragraph 1-8b , except the hazardous material data segment, will use the AMDF tailored distribution system (ATDS) to maintain a local computer file of individual NSNs.

b. ATDS users must have a user activity code (AC) established or recorded with LOGSA. A request to assign or confirm the code will be sent to LOGSA by a responsible U.S. Government activity. The request will cite the complete address, including the attention line of the participating activity, and a POC if additional information is required. Submit the request by memorandum or message to USAMC, Logistics Support Activity, ATTN: AMXLS-MD, Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-7466. On request or confirmation of activity codes, an ATDS user's manual will be sent to each user.

c. Government activities that request LOGSA assign an activity code to a non-U.S. Government activity must authorize them and must be accountable for suspending or canceling the code when appropriate.

d. Activities wanting to use DDN for broadcasts from LOGSA will provide LOGSA their DDN RIC.

e. ATDS users submit a stock number registration record as shown in table 2-44 for each NSN in which it has an interest.

f. LOGSA provides logistics management data for each submitted stock number registration record for which the NSN is resident on the AMDF as shown in tables 2-1 , 2-3 , 2-5 through 2-14 , and tables 2-19 through 2-27 .

g. LOGSA registers in the stock number user file (SNUF) each NSN submitted in a stock number registration record. For each NSN not resident in the AMDF, LOGSA will query the FLIS.

h. For each response received from the FLIS which shows current Army interest, LOGSA provides a response to the ATDS user as specified in f above.

i. For each response received from the FLIS that shows no current Army interest, LOGSA deletes the NSN from the SNUF and provides a response as shown by table 2-45 . The FLIS status message code and the clear text phrase code cited in this table is explained in tables 2-46 and 2-47 .

j. Monthly, LOGSA provides any changes for each NSN registered on the SNUF, as specified in f above.

k. For each SNUF reconciliation record that contains logistics management data different from that on the AMDF, LOGSA provides data to the ATDS user as specified in f above.

Section XV
Accounting Requirements Code Selection Criteria

2-57. Accounting requirements

The ARC is a 1-position, alphabetic code that identifies the level of accounting required for an item of supply within the Army retail supply system. All items of supply are entered into the stock record account (SRA) of the unit. The ARC identifies the level of accounting that is required once an item is issued from the SRA.

2-58. Data codes and definitions

The following identify and define each of the acceptable values of the ARC:

a. N-nonexpendable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of "N"in the AMDF. Nonexpendable items require property book accountability after issue from the SRA. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded N in the AMDF are considered nonexpendable items.

b. D-Durable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of "D"in the AMDF. Durable items do not require property book accountability after issue from the SRA, but do require hand receipt control when issued to the user. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded D in the AMDF are considered durable items.

c. X-expendable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of "X"in the AMDF. Expendable items require no formal accountability after issue from an SRA. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded X in the AMDF are considered expendable items.

2-59. Selection criteria

The following paragraphs specify the procedures to be used by the item manager to select the ARC to be assigned to an item of supply. These same procedures are applicable to retail activities in the assignment of the ARC to locally procured items.

a. If the class of supply has not been assigned, do not proceed. The class of supply is the key to selecting the correct ARC. The class of supply must be determined before selecting the ARC. Once the class of supply is identified, proceed through the remainder of the criteria and select the appropriate ARC.

b. If the class of supply has been assigned, review the assigned class of supply to assure that it is correct. After assuring that the class of supply is correct, proceed through the remainder of the criteria and select the appropriate ARC.

c. If the item is assigned class I ( code 1), subsistence; class III ( code 3), petroleum, oil, and lubricants (POL); class VI ( code 6), personal demand items; or class IX ( code 9), repair parts and assemblies; the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X"to the item of supply.

d. If the item is assigned class V ( code 5), ammunition, proceed as follows:

(1) If the subclassification of supply is not equal to "L," missile materiel, the item is expendable. Assign "ARC X" to the item of supply.

(2) If the subclassification of supply is equal to L, proceed as follows:

(a) If the item is a training device assigned to class of supply V to assure transportation through munitions channels, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(b) Otherwise, the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X"to the item of supply.

e. If the item is assigned class VII ( code 7), major end items; the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

f. If the item is assigned class VIII ( code 8), medical materiel; the ARC is selected through use of the medical materiel "ARC" selection criteria established by The Surgeon General ( AR 40-61 ).

g. The following paragraphs provide the selection criteria applicable to class II ( code 2), nonmajor end items; class IV ( code 4), construction materiel, and class X ( code 0), non-military program materiel.

h. If the item is recorded in SB 700-20 , proceed as follows:

(1) If the item is assigned Federal supply classifications 8405 , 8410 , 8415 , 8420 , 8425 , 8430 , 8435 , 8440 , 8445 , or 8450 , proceed as follows:

(a) If the item is a bag item (that is, the item is a piece of personal equipment issued from the military personnel appropriation to an individual on entry into the military service), the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

(b) If the item is authorized by common table of allowances (CTA) 50-970, code the item of supply as expendable (ARC=X). If the item is authorized by CTA 50-900, paragraph 9, table 4, code the item of supply as nonexpendable (ARC=N).

(c) If the item is not a bag item or authorized by CTA 50-970, the item is coded as nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(2) If the item is assigned to FSC 3510 , 4110 , 4140 , 6240 , 7105 , 7110 , 7125 , 7195 , 7210 , 7220 , 7230 , 7290 , 7310 , 7320 , 7350 , 7820 , or 7910 , proceed as follows:

(a) If the unit price is less than $300, and assigned a CIIC of "U"or "7", the item is coded expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

(b) If the unit price of the item is over $300, but less than $2,500 and is assigned a CIIC of "U" or "7", the item is coded durable. Assign ARC "D" to the item of supply.

(c) Otherwise the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(3) If the item is not assigned one of the above-identified FSCs, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

i. If the item is assigned FSCs 8465 , 8570, or 8475 , as ARC "N" or "X", as applicable, to the item of supply.

j. If the item is assigned FSC 8340 , tents and tarpaulins proceed as follows:

(1) If the item is an end item, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(2) Otherwise, if the item is a component of a tent or tarpaulin, the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

k. If the item is assigned " FSC 8345 ," flags and pennants, proceed as follows:

(1) If the item is a member of one of the following categories of flags and pennants, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N"to the item of supply. Nonexpendable flags and pennants categories follow:

(a) Organizational colors.

(b) National flags (except for grave decoration and automobile flags).

(c) State flags.

(d) Positional colors.

(e) Distinguishing flags.

(2) All other flags and pennants are expendable. Assign ARC "X" to these items.

l. If the item is assigned an FSC listed in table 2-69 (this identifies the item as a hand tool or a measuring tool), proceed as follows:

(1) If the unit price of the item is equal to or exceeds $300, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(2) If the unit price of the item is equal to or exceeds $50, the item is durable. Assign ARC "D" to the item of supply.

(3) Otherwise, if the unit price of the item is less than $50, the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

m. If the item is assigned an FSC listed in table 2-70 , the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

n. If the item is assigned an FSC listed in table 2-71 , proceed as follows:

(1) If the unit price of the item is equal to or exceeds $300, the item is nonexpendable. Assign ARC "N" to the item of supply.

(2) Otherwise, if the unit price of the item is less than $300, the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

(3) Otherwise, the item is expendable. Assign ARC "X" to the item of supply.

o. Items not assigned an ARC according to the above criteria are considered to be expendable. Assign ARC "X" to these items of supply.

Chapter 3
ACLDB Code Data

3-1. Code data requirement

The code system in this section must be used by all Army activities that input to or receive output from the ACLDB/AMDF.

3-2. Code explanations

The following code definitions are arranged in data name sequence and list the appropriate tables, when applicable, in which the specific codes can be found:

a. Accounting requirements code (ARC). The ARC, as shown in table 3-1 , is a 1-position alphabetic code that labels an item expendable, nonexpendable, or durable. (See AR 40-61 , AR 710-2 , and AR 735-5 .) This code does not apply to disposal authority of unserviceable items, which is governed by the recoverability code.

b. Acquisition advice code (AAC). The AAC is a 1-position alphabetic code that informs the requisitioner how, and under what conditions, an item will be acquired. It does not specify the source of supply for the item. This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF ( table 3-2 ).

Table 3-1. Accounting requirements codes
Code Explanation
N Nonexpendable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of N in the AMDF. Nonexpendable items require property book accountability after issue from the stock record account. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded N in the AMDF are considered nonexpendable items.
D Durable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of "D" in the AMDF. Durable items do not require property book accountability after issue from the stock record account, but do require hand receipt control when issued to the user. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded D in the AMDF are considered durable items.
X Expendable item. An item of Army property coded with an ARC of X in the AMDF. Expendable items require no formal accountability after issue from a stock record account. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded X in the AMDF are considered expendable items.


Table 3-2. Acquisition advice codes

  a. The item is centrally managed, stocked, and issued.
  b. Requisitions will be submitted according to IMM and Army requisitioning procedures.

Notes:
1. The source of supply shown in positions 30-32 of the IDS will be a DLA center or the GSA with the special requirements code D (DLA) or S (GSA) in position 66 of the IDS. Special requirements code D designates the source of supply modifier JDS identifying DLA supply schedule items; S designates source of supply modifier JDS identifying GSA supply schedule items.
2. AAC Y will be used to identify DOD nonstandard items, which are not to be requisitioned by Army activities; although, in some instances, the integrated manager may continue to procure, stock, and supply non-Army agencies.

c. Activity or file originator code. LOGSA uses multi-position alphanumeric codes to identify activities when exchanging data. There are two types of codes assigned. Those assigned to AMDF file originators and those assigned to AMDF recipients.

(1) AMDF originator code. AMDF originator codes are assigned by DLIS. These codes are used by the AMDF file originators when transmitting data to DLIS, other services, or LOGSA; or receiving data from DLIS, other services, or LOGSA.

(2) AMDF recipient activity code. AMDF recipient activity codes are assigned by LOGSA. Single source recipients are automatically furnished an activity code by LOGSA. These activity codes are alphanumeric codes and are assigned according to the AMDF data received. Those activities receiving AMDF data through the distribution subsystem and the ATDS will be assigned a 3-position alphanumeric code. Those receiving AMDF data through the AIRS and also ARIL data will be assigned a 2-position alphanumeric code. Activities that are not AMDF recipients but wish to receive services provided by LOGSA will contact LOGSA for a code assignment ( table 3-3 ).

d. Air commodity and special handling (ACSH) code. The ACSH code is a 1-position alphanumeric code used for all air shipments ( table 3-4 ). It identifies material for invoice and customs requirements and denotes cargo needing special handling or reporting. This code is in the freight segment of the AMDF.

Table 3-7. ADPE identification codes 1
Code Definition
0 Represents items with no automatic data processing (ADP) components.
1 Analog central processing units (CPUs). Represents only CPUs that accept as input the electrical equivalent of physical conditions such as flow, temperature, pressure angular position, or voltage and perform computations by manipulating these electrical equivalents to produce results for further use. (See note 2 .)
2 Digital CPUs. Represents only CPUs that accept information represented by digital impulses. Specifically, a device capable of performing sequences of arithmetic and logic operations (a program) not only on data but also on the program which is in its internal memory (storage) without intervention of an operator.

Group 72-Withdrawals
C07 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss) — transfer from DLA, GSA, and other military services inventory management with a change in retail management not involving a stock number change. The routing identifier code of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C17 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss) — Inventory management transfer from within Army to activities outside of Army not involving a stock number change. The routing identifier code of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C27 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss) — Inventory management transfer within Army not involving a stock number change. The routing identifier code of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C37 Delete-remove from system. Use when the item manager determines that no Army, International Logistics Program (ILP), or MAP interest exists for the item. Army has deleted the stock number from the Logistics Information System total item record and has withdrawn user interest, or all services have withdrawn interest on the item. The following restrictions apply:
  a. For item manager — before submitting C37 action to LOGSA, the following conditions must be met:
   1. Phrase code L, M, N, P, T, V, or Z must have been issued in the ACLDB for 28 days before the effective date of the delete action. Delete can only be made 28 days after the last action.
   2. When phrase codes L, N, P, T, V, or Z apply, the phrase code must be perpetuated in the delete action. When the item data record ( DIC C37) is being deleted and I&S, component, or equivalent item phrase codes apply, the correct delete transactions must be made to the identical stock numbers in the I&S, component, and equivalent item segments, as applicable. The LOGSA will add this record to the I&S and the component history files.
   3. Total Army stock, controlled by the item manager, has been exhausted, or disposition instructions issued to the wholesale storage activities, and the stock number has been deleted from all active records of the wholesale supply system.
   4. No Army/ILP (to include map, grant aid, foreign military sales, and supply support arrangements) interest exists in the system.
   5. The stock number has been deleted from SB 700-20 .
  b. Recipients of the AMDF — other than CONUS depots —
   1. When the C37 action is received and phrase code L, M, N, P, T, V, or Z has not been previously established (28 days), stop processing the C37 action and notify, in writing, the item manager identified by position 1 of the materiel category structure code. Send an information copy to LOGSA, ATTN: AMXLS-MD, Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-7466.
   2. If a change to the stock status of an item has previously been received and there is no stock on hand, but stock is due in, send an inquiry or follow-up to the last known source of supply (based on the requisition status or advice record). This will assure supply of the replacing item ( positions 48-60) is received and not supply of the replaced item ( positions 8-20).
   3. Under specific conditions, if assets are on hand at the user level at the time the C37 delete record is received, the C37 action will be suspended until all stock is exhausted.
   4. If conditions outlined above do not apply, recipients will update their internal files or records with the C37 action.
  c. CONUS depots — notify the Army owner for disposition instructions if stock is on hand or due in. If DLA, GSA, and other military services have stock on hand, no request will be made to those owners for disposition instructions unless a C7D action has been received. The stock number will stay on the depot records until all owners send delete actions. (When used, the input DIC C37 record must be an exact image of the management data on file, except for the DIC and effective date.)

This DIC will always contain phrase code A or D and must be processed the same as a group 1 DIC by recipients. The routing identifier code of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C77 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss) — Transfer from Army to another manager, either Army, DLA, GSA, or another military service, resulting from a stock number change. This DIC will always contain phrase code A or D and must be processed the same as a group 1 DIC by recipients. The routing identifier code of the gaining item manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C87 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss) — Transfer from DLA, GSA, and other military services to DLA, GSA, and other military services inventory management not involving a stock number change. The routing identifier code of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C97 This DIC provides file originators a way to withdraw an incorrect stock number record ( positions 8-20) from the file. This code applies only to items if complete removal of an incorrect stock number record ( positions 8-20) from the file is desired. History or cross-reference records will not be established. The C97 must be an exact copy (4-80 duplicated) of the incorrect stock number record except for the document identifier code.

HEA Add HMDS record input E (ammunition).
HEC Change HMDS record input E (ammunition).
HED Delete HMDS record input E (ammunition).
HFA Add HMDS record input F (as required).
HFC Change HMDS record input F (as required).
HFD Delete HMDS record input F (as required).

Notes:
1. Group 1 DIC must always contain phrase code A, C, or D and will be used only when the source of supply ( positions 30-32) does not change. When a change results in a management change (phrase code A or D), DIC C57 or C77 will be used. In all such instances, the item data record change becomes a cross-reference record.
2. Phrase code A, C, or D (group 1 DIC, C57, and C77) and C37 transactions, deleting the stock number in positions 8-20, result in automatic removal of the item data, unit-measurement-quantity, item identification, packaging, and freight records. LOGSA will label the deleted records as inactive, and keep the last transaction of the above segments in the LOGSA master data record for reference purposes. In addition, the above item data transactions are converted, by LOGSA and recipients, and added to the history segment.

o. End item code (EIC). The EIC is a 3-position alphanumeric code assigned to each end item managed or used by the Army, which meets all of the following criteria:

(1) End items with an NSN recorded in the AMDF.

(2) Type classified standard, low-rate production, or limited procurement-urgent per AR 70-1 .

(3) Assigned appropriation/budget activity account code A through Q inclusive.

p. Essentiality code (EC). The EC is a 1-position alphabetic code in the item data record used to indicate if an item is essential or not ( table 3-14 ). Essentiality is the degree of military worth of an item of supply or how its failure, if a replacement is not immediately available, would affect the ability of the weapon system, end item, or organization, to perform its intended functions or missions. This code will be used to indicate the essentiality of end items and repair parts. This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF.

q. Fund code (FC). The FC is a 1-position numeric code. This code indicates the type of funds to be used to pay for Army stock fund items. This code is only applied to a few items, which require special handling ( table 3-15 ).

Table 3-14. Essentiality codes (See note.)
Code Explanation
A This code identifies essential end items.
B This code identifies end items, which are not essential. For class VIII items, this code identifies material considered to be routine for health care and diagnosis.
C A support item needed to support a field or organizational maintenance level. The failure of this item will render the end item inoperable (unable to move, shoot, and communicate).
D A support item that is not needed to support an essential field maintenance or organizational maintenance function (code C), but is needed for operator or crew safety during training or in garrison.
J Item does not qualify for essentiality code C, but is needed to prevent impairments or reduction of operational effectiveness of the end item.
K Medical materiel considered essential for maintaining life support.
M Medical material considered necessary for maintaining life support.
N Medical materiel considered supplementary for health care.
E A support item that is not needed to support an essential field maintenance or organizational maintenance function (code C), but is required to meet:
  a. Climatic conditions.
  b. Legal requirements.
  c. Requirements of a host nation in an overseas environment.
F A support item used only at depot maintenance level.
G A support item that is not needed to support the following:
  a. An essential field maintenance or organizational maintenance function (code C).
  b. Crew or operator safety (code D).
  c. Legal or climatic requirements (code E).
  d. Depot maintenance operation (code F).
  e. Deferrable maintenance function (code J).

Notes:
. The AMDF shows only the highest code assigned of all support item to end item applications.


Table 3-15. Fund codes
Code Explanation
1 Designates an item funded by Operation and Maintenance, Army (OMH) appropriation.
4 Designates an item for which initial issues are reimbursed from Procurement Appropriation, Army Funds.
5 Designates an item funded by Military Personnel, Army appropriation.

r. Hazardous material (HM) code. The HM code is a 2-position alphabetic code that represents peculiar shipping conditions. It generally indicates hazardous or dangerous article descriptions that must be shown on the bill of lading. This code is in the freight segment of the AMDF ( table 3-16 ).

s. An I&S deletion reason code. The deletion reason code is a 1-position alphabetic code that explains the reason for deleting I&S data from part 1 of sections I and II of the I&S segment. I&S data deleted by reason code C will be placed in the history segment of the AMDF by LOGSA. I&S data deleted by reason codes A, B, or D will not be placed in the history segment. This code is used along with the I&S and history segments of the AMDF. (See table 3-17 .)

Table 3-17. I&S deletion reason codes
Code Explanation
A Deletion of incorrect I&S relationship. Data being deleted is invalid and will not be used.
B Deletion of I&S relationship no longer having universal application. Data being deleted no longer applies to all Army uses.
C Deletion of I&S relationship involving one or more stock numbers which are no longer active, and have been or are being deleted from the item data segment of the AMDF.
D I&S relationship remains valid. Action taken to revise or change data except for reason codes A, B, and C.

t. Identifying number (IN) code. The identifying number code (IN) is a 1-position alphabetic code ( table 3-18 ) that identifies the type of number assigned by the initiating source. The IN code was established for the history segment, AIRS and I&S section II.

u. Inventory category code (ICC). The ICC is a 1-position numeric code used to group items of supply into lots or segments for inventory and research purposes. Accountable and storage activities will record these codes on records to plan and schedule inventory actions. The order of priority for assigning these codes will be 0, 2, 8, 3, 7, 6, 1, 4, 9 and 5 per AR 740-26 . This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF ( table 3-19

v. Item type storage (ITS) code. The ITS code is a 1-position alphabetic code that identifies the required item storage environment. (The codes are listed in table 3-20 .)

w. Less-than-truckload (LTL) and less-than-carload (LCL) rating codes. The LTL and LCL rating codes are a 1-position alphabetic code that converts to a rating assigned an item to develop transportation charges for LTL and LCL shipments. The LTL and LCL codes are in the freight segment of the AMDF. (The codes and explanations are listed in table 3-21 .)

x. Logistic control code (LCC). The LCC is a 1-position alphabetic code assigned to the Army adopted items and other items of materiel authorized (LIN related items) to provide a basis for logistic support decisions. These decisions involve procurement, overhaul, repair parts provisioning, requisitioning, distribution, and so forth. LOGSA will keep this code compatible with those items listed in SB 700-20 . This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF. LCC codes and explanations are listed in table 3-22 .

y. Maintenance repair (MR) code. The MR code is a 1-position alphabetic code that indicates whether the item is to be repaired and identifies the lowest maintenance level capable of performing all authorized maintenance functions. The decision to code support items for repair at the indicated levels requires that all maintenance capability, i.e., remove, replace, repair, assemble, and test for the support items be provided to that level. This does not preclude some repair at a lower level of maintenance ( table 3-23 ). This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF. (See AR 700-82 .)

z. Army MATCAT structure code. The Army MATCAT structure code is a 5-position alphanumeric code that prescribes the materiel category structure detail for management of Army inventories ( tables 3-23 through 3-28 ). LOGSA will keep codes compatible with AR 710-1 . This code is in the item data segment of the AMDF.

(1) Position Number 1. MATCAT and inventory manager or NICP SICC. First position codes are alphabetic and identify the materiel categories of principal and secondary items to the CONUS inventory manager, NICP, or in the case of DLA/GSA managed items, the SICC that exercises managerial responsibility. The title given to the first position is a broad categorization which is generally descriptive of the items managed by a particular inventory manager, but does not necessarily identify fully all the items under the inventory manager's purview ( table 3-24 ).

(2) Position Number 2. Appropriation and budget activity (ABA) account code. Second position is alphabetic or numeric, excluding the letters I and O. This code identifies investment or expense type items. Investment items are purchased with procurement appropriations (PA) and are generally free-issued to Army customers and sold to other services, Government agencies, and international logistics customers. Expense items are purchased with Army Stock Fund (ASF) obligation authority and are generally sold to all customers. Prime and related items must contain the same ABA code. Items are categorized by the investment versus decision diagram ( figure 3-1 ). (See table 3-25 for codes and explanations.)

(3) Position Number 3. Management inventory segment. Third position codes are numeric 1 through 4. They identify the management inventory segment of the category structure. It provides further subdivision of those categories identified by positions 1 and 2. Maintenance of control accounts for recurring reports to this position of the category structure is not required. (See table 3-26 for codes and explanations.)

(4) Position Number 4. Specific group or generic code. Fourth position codes are either alphabetic or numeric, excluding the letter O and the numeral 1. This code provides further subdivision of those items identified to positions 1 through 3. For Army-managed items, these codes along with the codes assigned to position 5, identify a generic category of weapons systems, end items, or homogeneous group of items. For DLA or GSA managed items and medical or dental items, this position is numeric 0, except for those DLA or GSA items having application to an Army weapon system or end item which will carry the appropriate generic code. (See table 3-27 for codes and explanations.)

(5) Position Number 5. Generic category code. Fifth position codes are alphanumeric except the letters I and O. This position identifies items to weapons systems/end items, or other application. For Army managed items, these codes, in combination with the codes assigned in position 4, will identify a specific weapons system or end item or homogeneous group of items. DLA and GSA managed items will be the numeric 0, except for items having application to an Army weapon system or end item which must be assigned the appropriate fifth position. (See table 3-28 for codes and explanations.)

aa. Material safety data sheet (MSDS) indicator code. The MSDS code indicator code is a 1-position alphabetic code that identifies NSNs requiring the manufacturer or supplier to prepare and submit an MSDS OSHA Form 174 or any essentially identical form to Government activities according to Federal Standard 313 ( table 3-29 ). This code is in the freight segment of the AMDF.

ab. National codification bureau code (NCBC). The NCBC code is a 2-position numeric code that identifies the country or other foreign country that originally cataloged an item of supply. (See table 3-30 .) The NCBC is part of each NIIN and NSN.

ac. Phrase code (PC). The PC (logistical management data reference phrase) is a 1-position alphabetic or numeric code that applies to the item represented by the stock number in positions 8-20. It denotes changes or a relationship between the national or NATO stock number and the data in positions 48-60, unless otherwise prescribed in the history segment. These phrase codes provide advice for consolidating, interchanging and disposing of stock. They also announce that the stock number in positions 8-20 will be deleted from all active records of the wholesale supply system and from the AMDF in a future change notice. These codes apply to the item data, interchangeable and substitute, component, and equivalent item segments of the AMDF as limited by instructions for those segments ( table 3-31 ).

Table 3-22. Logistic control codes
Code Explanation
A Items that are acceptable for the intended mission or acceptable during initial production. These items will receive full logistic support until a replacement item is approved or until the requirement is phased out. This LCC applies to developed and new nondeveloped items (including commercial purchases or product improved items) determined to be suitable by Defense Systems Acquisition Review Council, Army Systems Acquisition Review Council or in process review to satisfy the Army requirement. LCC-A items must be procurable.
B This LCC applies to items that will be issued in place of LCC-A items. (LCC-B items will not be reprocured if the approved LCC-A item can be procured and deployed in time to meet the requirement) or items which can no longer be procured but still must be supported. For those LCC-B items that are still procurable, written justification supporting proposed reprocurement will accompany Army Material Program AMP submissions. The published AMP will constitute Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) approval. Request for authority to reprocure LCC-B items not included in the current AMP will be approved on a case-by-case basis. The office that initiates a request for approval to reprocure an LCC-B item is the official office of record responsible for keeping request and approval documents.
D Items or systems undergoing development, or nondevelopmental (commercial) items requiring Basis-of-Issue Plan that have not qualified for type classification.
F Items identified by HQDA as Mission Essential Contingency Items for Reserve Components only.
N Enter only if items will not be separately type classified, but must be listed in SB 700-20 ; (in accordance with AR 70-1 ) or if the item is a nondevelopmental item qualified for type development.
O Obsolete items no longer needed or supported for Army operational use.
P Designates items being produced from an approved low-rate initial production line before the full-rate production decision. This phase will verify the production process, provide continuity of production, use hard production tooling, and prove production methodology. Items type classified LRP must be reclassified as standard at the full-rate production decision point, providing TC STD prerequisites are met.
R Non-LIN related items not appearing in SB 700-20. (Added for this chapter only.)
S Items no longer acceptable for Army operational use, but having a residual value for training. (Items assigned LCC-S will be supported only from repair part stocks on hand or by cannibalization.)
T Items that will be made low rate initial production to get limited quantities for operational test III before entering into the Army operational inventory.
U Items not qualified for LCC-A, but will be procured in limited quantities to satisfy Army directed urgent operational requirements.

Table 3-26. Management inventory segment (Position number 3 of the MATCAT)
Numeric code Description and use
1 Reparable items (exclusive of insurance and provisioning items). This code will be used to identify items of a durable nature which, when unserviceable, normally can be repaired economically by depots or lower echelons of maintenance. It will only be assigned when the repair code (4th position of the source, maintenance, and recoverability code) is O, F, H, L, or D, and the recoverability code, (5th position of source, maintenance and recoverability code) is O, F, H, L, D or A. This indicates that the item is reparable at depot or a lower echelon of maintenance.
2 Nonreparable items (exclusive of insurance and provisioning items). This code will be used to identify items that are not reparable. It will only be assigned when the repair code is Z or B and the recoverability code is Z or A, which indicates that the item is nonreparable.
3 Insurance items. This code will identify items with insufficient demands for classification as regular stock items, but requires to be stocked since the items' essentiality and long procurement lead time would create an unacceptable situation if not stocked. A numeric code of 3 will only be assigned when the acquisition advice code is Z indicating that it is an insurance/numeric stockage item and the essentiality code indicates the item is essential.
4 Provisioning items (exclusive of insurance items). This code will identify new items introduced through the provisioning process and there is not sufficient experience obtained to manage based on normal demand forecasts. These items can be either reparable or nonreparable.
