TM 10-4930-229-12&P 2-6. Purpose of PMCS Table. The purpose of the PMCS table is to provide a systematic method of inspecting and servicing the equipment. In this way, small defects can be detected early before they become a major problem causing the equipment to fail to complete its mission. The PMCS table is arranged with the individual PMCS procedures listed in sequence under assigned intervals. The most logical time (before, during, or after operation) to perform each procedure determines the interval to which it is assigned. Make a habit of doing the checks in the same order each time and anything wrong will be seen quickly. See paragraphs 2-5 and 2-7 for an explanation of the columns in table 2-1. 2-7. Explanation of Columns. The following is a list of the PMCS table column headings with a description of the information found in each column. a. Item No. This column shows the sequence in which the checks and services are to be performed, and is used to identify the equipment area on the Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet, DA Form 2404. b. Interval. This column shows a dot. when each check is to be done. c.Item  to  be  Inspected/procedures. These columns identify the general area or specific part where the check or service is to be done, and explains how to do it. NOTE The terms ready/available and mission capable refer to the same status: Equipment is on hand and is able to perform its combat mission. Refer to DA Pam 738-750. d.  Equipment  is  Not  Ready/Available  If  This column list conditions that make the equipment unavailable for use because it is unable to perform its mission, or because it would represent a safety hazard. Do not accept or operate  equipment  with  a  condition  in  the  “Equipment  is  Not  Ready/Available  If”  column. 2-8. Reporting Deficiencies. If any problem with the equipment is discovered during PMCS or while it is being operated that cannot be corrected at the operator/crew maintenance level, it must be reported. Refer to DA Pam 738-750 and report the deficiency using the proper forms. 2-9. Special lnstructions. Preventive maintenance is not limited to performing the checks and services listed in the PMCS table. WARNING Dry cleaning solvent PD-680 used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to personnel and  property.  Avoid  repeated  and  prolonged  skin  contact.  Do  not  use  near  open  flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100- 138°F (38–60°C). aKeep  it  Clean.  Dirt, grease, oil, and debris get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Clean as you work and as needed. Use dry cleaning solvent on all metal surfaces. Use soap and water to clean rubber or plastic material. b. Bolts,Nuts, and Screws. Check them all for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken condition. You can’t try them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around boltheads. If you find one you think is loose, tighten it, or report it to unit maintenance if you can’t tighten it. 2-6
