Chapter 1
The Army Enterprise Material Master

Section I
Introduction

1-1. Purpose

This pamphlet provides the guidance necessary for preparing, generating, collecting, and distributing logistics management data in the Army Enterprise Material Master (AEMM). The AEMM 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. References

See appendix A .

1-3. Explanation of abbreviations and terms

See the glossary .

1-4. Data source

The AEMM process utilizes source data automation as the basic tenet focused on the business processes, management, and distribution of AEMM data throughout the Army Enterprise as follows:

a. Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) is the authoritative data source provider of common material data relating to standard national stock number (NSN) assignment with the exception of packaging and freight data.

b. Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) is the authoritative data source for Army peculiar, unique, and packaging and freight data relating to the standard NSN for Army managed and Army interest material within their domain.

c. Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) leveraging the AEMM, is the authoritative data source for selected inactive materials held in the Army Enterprise and Enterprise non-standard materiels.

d. U.S. Army Materiel Command (USAMC), G-8 is the authoritative data source for the Presidential Budget pricing data and includes serviceable and unserviceable credit, delta bill, and transfer pricing.

1-5. Distribution of data

USAMC, LOGSA can provide the AEMM and logistics management data through an AEMM subscription basis. This is a direct feed/subscription or web service from the AEMM source system syndicated on a daily, multiday, or monthly basis. The output provides a data feed of materials changes based on the effective date of the change and the elements of information subscribed to. The AEMM feed can include all active Department of Defense (DOD) materials or subsets of materials (for example, Army interest Material (Primary Inventory Control Activity (PICA) and Secondary Inventory Control Activity (SICA)). Additional LOGSA AEMM products include the automatic return items list (ARIL). This list contains items in a critical worldwide stock position. Excess and unserviceable items must be returned to continental United States (CONUS) depots without waiting for disposition instructions.

1-6. Special information

To interface with LOGSA for material data, the requesting organization will request from LOGSA, the current interface request documentation, which contains interface procedures and the AEMM data layout for the elements available for syndication.

Section II
Army Master Data File

1-7. Overview

a. The Army Master Data File (AMDF) is a multi-segment file including, both current and historical management data for Army used or managed items. The file generates, collects, and issues logistics management data to activities at all levels performing logistics functions essential to the acquisition, storage, control, reporting, maintenance, distribution and disposal of material.

b. The types of AMDF segments are as follows:

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

(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 data for descriptive or reference type NSNs for routing materiel shipments within CONUS and outside the continental United States (OCONUS).

(5) An interchangeable and substitutable segment. This segment provides item relationships and interchangeable and substitutable (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 a 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 UI.

(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.

1-8. Army Master Data File data elements

Chapter 2
Army Enterprise Material Master Segments

Section I
Item Data Segment

2-1. Provisions

a. The item data segment (IDS) 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 UI. LOGSA will broadcast, but will not retain a UI conversion record on file for each NSN whose UI is changed.

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

a. The Army PICA/SICA submits to Army Enterprise System Integration Program (AESIP), an item data record for each Army used or managed NSN. An Army PICA/SICA not operating under LMP may submit an item data change record to change an Army unique data element.

b. LOGSA will file and retain in the AEMM and then distribute unit measurement quantity data for each Army used or managed NSN assigned a nondefinitive UI.

c. LOGSA distributes a UI conversion record for each Army used or managed NSN whose UI changes.

Section II
Item Identification Segment

2-4. Overview

This section supplements the stock number record in the item data record with nomenclatures (abbreviated or extended) for use when preparing authorized stockage lists (ASLs), Army supply catalogs, supply bulletins, and adopted items list.

2-5. Concept

The Army PICA/SICA submits to LOGSA, item identification records for each Army used or managed NSN. LOGSA files are retained in the AEMM, and item identification records will be distributed.

2-6. Special considerations

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

a. Line item numbers. 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 line item number. 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 national stock numbers. 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 is a 4-position alphanumeric code assigned to some items in Federal supply groups (FSGs) 13 and 14. The code 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 interservice 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 AESIP for common items (for example, 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 AESIP for selective items (for example, 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 AESIP for special items (for example, 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 AESIP for the following data elements:

a. Card indicator code.

b. Cleaning and drying procedure.

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 manager (IMM) stocked and issued.

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

(6) G-General Service Administration 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-semi-active item, no replacement.

(11) Y-terminal item.

c. The Army PICA. The Army PICA will submit packaging data to LOGSA 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. The codes 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 for each Army managed, stocked, and 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.

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) IDS gain — MDD only.

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

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

2-13. Freight segment data elements

The following data elements are received from the Army PICA and are retained in the freight segment:

a. Air commodity and special handling (ACSH) code.

b. Air dimension code (ADC).

c. Hazardous material (HM) code.

d. Integrity code.

e. Item name.

f. Less-than-truckload (LTL) rating code.

g. Less-than-carload (LCL) rating code.

h. SDS indicator code.

i. National motor freight classification (NMFC) code.

j. NMFC sub-item number code.

k. NMFC description.

l. NSN.

m. Originator code.

n. Rail variation code.

o. Special handling code.

p. Type of cargo (TC) code.

q. Uniform freight classification code.

r. United Nations organizational serial number.

s. Water commodity code.

Section V
Interchangeable and Substitutable Segment

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 catalog management data (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, an group file (order-of-use (OOU) file).

(2) Section II, major items, that are 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 are 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 corrections. 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 (Interchangeable and Substitutable Cross-Reference File)

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

b. 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.

c. For phrase coded relationships in the file, the described stock number, preferred stock number, and related stock number must have the same UI and the same FSC.

d. 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 the input. Changes to one phrase code in the relationship, requires changes to the reversing phrase code.

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

2-17. Procedures for section 1, part 2 (Interchangeable and Substitutable Order-of-Use File)

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

b. 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 (for example, 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 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 commodity integrated material manager.

c. To understand and apply the format and codes correctly, it is essential to make maximum use of authorized substitutes to satisfy Army needs.

Table 2-2. Interchangeable items (2-way)
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU
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, and 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.

Table 2-3. Substitute items (1-way progressive)
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU
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 OOU.

Table 2-4. 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.

Table 2-5. Combination of substitutable/interchangeable items, with jump-to-code application
Preferred stock number Described stock number OOU JTC
6656-00-397-6254 6645-00-111-6019 AAA ADA
6645-00-718-3022 ABA 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 OOUs 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 UI 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 code 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 (ARs) 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) 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.

(2) All records reflect a LIN.

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

b. Part 2, Major Item Group File.

(1) 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.

(2) 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 and alphabetic flags 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 Department of Defense Ammunition Code file. This file is in stock number sequence to permit cross-reference to the DODAC group file, part 2.

b. Part 2, Department of Defense Ammunition Code group file.

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

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

(3) This file is in DODAC sequence to permit cr oss-reference to part 1 submitted by the file originators.

c. Ammunition and explosive items. 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, for example. Therefore, phrase codes and I&S group concepts do not apply to this file.

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

e. Use of National Stock Number and North Atlantic Treaty Organization 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

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 .

b. Army activities will use item data history (IDHIS) identifying numbers only in publications (for example, 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 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 IDS 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 a NIIN with a FSC different from the FSC of an identical cross-reference related NIIN.

2-23. Section II-interchangeable and substitutable history

A file of all identifying numbers deleted from Section I, part 1 and section II, part 2 of the I&S segment will be maintained in LOGSA.

2-24. Section III-component history

A file of all identifying numbers deleted from the component segment will be maintained in LOGSA.

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.

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 an update of the active AMDF.

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

Section VII
Component Segment

2-26. Provisions

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 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 UI.

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

2-29. Concept

a. LOGSA files, retains in the AMDF and distributes equivalent item segment records 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

Army Master Data File Authorized Stockage List Weight and Cube Extract System

2-34. Overview

LOGSA operates an AMDF ASL weight and cube extract system to allow Army users (or any other group of NIINs) to receive weight and cube data.

2-35. Reply records

LOGSA processes the input records and specification per the requester.

Section XI
Special Army Data Segment

2-36. Overview

The special Army data segment provides a way for LOGSA to provide the user in the field various logistics management data elements.

2-37. Special considerations

This segment is used for output from LOGSA only. The format in this segment will not be used for input to LOGSA.

Section XII
Medical User Data Segment

2-38. Overview

The medical user data segment provides logistics management data for SCMC 8 (medical items).

2-39. Special considerations

Only U.S. Army Medical Materiel Activity may submit data for this segment.

Section XIII
Accounting Requirements Code Selection Criteria

2-40. 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.

2-41. 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 issuing 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 issuing from an SRA. Commercial and fabricated items similar to items coded X in the AMDF are considered expendable items.

2-42. Selection criteria

The following paragraphs specify the procedures to be used by the item manager to select the ARC to be assigned an item of supply. These same procedures apply 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 (see 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, 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. 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
Army Enterprise Material Master 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 AEMM/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. 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 RC.

b. Acquisition advice code. 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 SOS for the item. This code is in the IDS of the AMDF (see 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 issuing 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.

b. Requisitions will be submitted according to IMM and Army requisitioning procedures.
Notes:
1 The SOS 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 SOS modifier JDS identifying DLA supply schedule items; S designates SOS 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) Army Master Data File 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) Army Master Data File 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 AMDF Tailored Distribution System will be assigned a 3-position alphanumeric code. Those receiving AMDF data through the AMDF Integration and Retrieval System 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 (see table 3-3 ).

d. Air commodity and special handling code. The ACSH code is a 1-position alphanumeric code used for all air shipments (see 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. Automatic data processing equipment identification codes 1
Code Definition
0 Data processing. Represents items with no 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 (see note 3).
3 Hybrid CPUs. Represents only CPUs that have a combination of analog and digital capability as defined in codes 1 and 2 and which have conversion capability required for intercommunication.
4 ADP input/output storage devices. The input device is used for transferring data and instructions into a CPU. The output device is used to transfer results of processing by the CPU onto printed forms, punched cards, and magnetic media. Input and output devices combine the above functions in the same device. This class also includes data transmission terminals, batch terminals, and display terminals that are specially designed or modified to be used in conjunction with digital, analog, or hybrid CPUs. It includes modems when they are integral to the terminal. It also includes storage devices in which data can be inserted, retained, and retrieved for later use.
5 ADP accessory equipment. Represents accessory equipment, which is considered to be a component, device, or unit that is related directly to and essential in the operation of ADPE. Included in this class are complete units and components of related general purpose accessory equipment which are used as part of a system (for example, weapon system, control system, missile system, communication system, or navigational system). It also encompasses various units or devices and associated control units that are used in combination or conjunction with the ADPE configuration, but are not part of the configuration itself.
6 Punched card equipment. Represents collating machines, key punch machines; tabulating machines; verifier; reproducer; summary punch, sorter; interpreter (see note 4).
7 ADP supplies and support equipment. Represents consumable supplies, such as paper, tabulating machine, continuous flat fold; paper, tabulating machine, sheet: seal bands, tape, ADP; empty reels and hubs, tape, ADP; canisters, tape, ADP; carrying cases, tape, ADP. Also included are support equipment, such as magnetic tape testing, certifying, and cleaning equipment; disk pack testing; tape equipment winders, splicers, and card reconditioners.
8 ADP components. Represents ADP component assemblies that are parts of analog, digital, or hybrid data processing devices.
9 Assignment. To be assigned to an item containing embedded ADPE (see note 5).
Notes:
1 Codes 1 through 6 are only used when the item is ADPE in its entirety and is limited to the type meeting only 1 through 6 criteria.
2 An analog is a representation of one form of a physical condition existing in another form. (For example, the level of mercury in a tube represents the temperature in a thermometer; the angular position of a needle represents speed on a speedometer.) Excludes CPUs that have both analog and digital capability.
3 Digital refers to the representation of discrete numbers, symbols, and alphabetic characters by a predetermined, coded combination of electrical impulses. Excludes CPUs that have both analog and digital capability.
4 Card-actuated machines are excluded when cable connected to a CPU.
5 Meets one or more of the definitions for codes 1 through 6.

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 RIC of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C17 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss)-Inventory management transfer from within the Army to activities outside of Army not involving a stock number change. The RIC of the gaining manager will be entered in positions 61-63.
C27 Logistics reassignment (logistic loss)-Inventory management transfer within the Army not involving a stock number change. The RIC 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 AEMM 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 Logistics Support Activity, 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 SOS (based on the requisition status or advice record). This will assure the supply of the replacing item (positions 48-60) is received and not the 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.)

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 RIC 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 RIC 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.

a. As a normal change notice when the addition is caused by a stock number change without a materiel management transfer involved.
b. As a management transfer notice when transfer of management is involved (DIC C57-C77). When so used, positions 61-63 must contain the RIC of the losing manager.
C68 New item added stock number to the AMDF with a related stock number and phrase code. Use DIC C18 if a related stock number and phrase code do not apply. (Requires processing by recipients as a group 5 DIC.)
C78 Logistics reassignment (logistic gain)-transfer from DLA, GSA, and other military services inventory management. It involves a retail management change, but not a stock number change. The RIC of the losing manager will be entered in positions 61-63.

Notes:
1 Group 1 DIC must always contain phrase code A, C, or D and will only be used when the SOS (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. Also, the above item data transactions are converted, by LOGSA and recipients and added to the history segment.

o. End item code. The end item code 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 700-142 .

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

p. Essentiality code. The EC is a 1-position alphabetic code in the item data record used to indicate if an item is essential or not (see 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 IDS of the AMDF.

q. Fund code. The fund code 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 (see 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).

D I&S relationship remains valid. Action taken to revise or change data except for reason codes A, B, and C.

t. Inventory category code. 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 IDS of the AMDF (see table 3-18 ).

u. Item type storage code. The ITS code is a 1-position alphabetic code that identifies the required item storage environment (see table 3-19 ).

v. Less-than-truckload and less-than-carload 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 (see table 3-20 ).

Table 3-18. Inventory category codes
Code Category Explanation

w. Logistic control code. 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, for example, procurement, overhaul, repair parts provisioning, requisitioning, and distribution. LOGSA will keep this code compatible with those items listed in SB 700-20 . This code is in the IDS of the AMDF (see table 3-21 ).

x. Maintenance repair code. The maintenance repair (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, for example, 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 (see table 3-22 ). This code is in the IDS of the AMDF (see AR 700-82 ).

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

(1) Position Number 1. Materiel category and inventory manager or National Inventory Control Point Service Item Control Center. 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 (see table 3-23 ).

(2) Position Number 2. Appropriation and budget activity (ABA) account code. The second position is alphabetic or numeric, excluding the letters I and O. This ABA account code identifies investment or expense type items. Investment items are purchased with procurement appropriations (PA) and are free-issued to Army customers and sold to other services, Government agencies, and international logistics customers. Expense items are purchased with Army stock fund obligation authority and are sold to all customers. Prime and related items must contain the same ABA code. Items are categorized by the investment versus decision diagram (see table 3-24 ).

(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 3-25 ).

(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 3-26 ).

(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 3-27 ).

z. Safety data sheet indicator code. The SDS code indicator code is a 1-position alphabetic code that identifies NSNs requiring the manufacturer or supplier to prepare and submit a Hazard Communication Standard Safety Data Sheet or any essentially identical form to Government activities according to Federal Standard 313 (see table 3-28 ). This code is in the freight segment of the AMDF.

aa. National Codification Bureau code. The National Codification Bureau code (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 3-29 .) The NCBC is part of each NIIN and NSN.

ab. Phrase code. The phrase code (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 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 (see table 3-30 ).

Table 3-21. 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 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.
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 standard (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. (No longer available for new materiel usage in accordance with AR 700-142 ).

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 RC) is O, F, H, L, or D, and the RC, (5th position of source, maintenance and RC) 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 RC 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.

ap. Unit-of-issue code. The UI code is a 2-position alphabetic code that expresses a definite amount or quantity of an item that will be issued. This amount or quantity is the managing activity's set accounting unit on which unit price is based, accountable records are maintained, and requirements computed. Nondefinitive UI (except for medical items) in the IDS of the AMDF must be supported by a unit-measurement-quantity-record. A table of UI designations, terms, and definitions to be assigned to items of supply are explained in table 3-43 . This code is in the IDS of the AMDF.

aq. Unit-of-issue conversion table. The UI conversion table identifies the factor the old quantity must be multiplied by to convert it to the new UI. It also identifies the numerical multiplier used along with the reflected decimal locator (see table 3-44 ). This code is used in UI change records broadcast as part of the monthly SSD.

ar. Unit-of-measure code. The UM code is a 2-position alphabetic code that indicates a known physical measurement (length, volume, weight) or count of an item (for example, foot, gallon, pound, each, dozen, gross). This code is in the unit measurement quantity, history-section III, component, and equivalent item segment of the AMDF (see table 3-44.)

as. Estimated storage life code. This 1-position code indicates the estimated period of time an item will retain its serviceable qualities during proper storage (see table 3-45 ). This code is in the medical user data segment of the AMDF.

at. Storage/shipment requirement code. The storage/shipment requirement code is a 3-position alphanumeric code that indicates the physical and environmental conditions required for proper storage of materiel. The first position indicates special storage requirements. The second position indicates temperature requirements. The third position indicates hazardous material handling requirements (see table 3-46 ). This code is in the medical user data segment.

au. Hazardous waste code. The hazardous waste code is a 1-position alphabetic code assigned to an item that contains hazardous waste materiel (see table 3-47 ). This code is in the medical user data segment of the AMDF.

av. Storage type code. The storage type code is a 2-position alphanumeric code used to indicate the type of storage required. The first position is the type of facility code. The second position is the facility characteristics code (see table 3-48 ). This code is in the medical user data segment of the AMDF.

aw. Department of Defense special requirements code. This is a 1-position alphanumeric code that reflects special characteristics of an item to be used during receipt, storage and shipment. The codes indicate special labeling requirements, hazardous or dangerous characteristics or sensitive features of an item (see table 3-49 ). This code is in the medical user data segment of the AMDF.
