   a. Diskette transaction procedures. The following guidelines are provided for
submission of transaction diskettes and receipt of status diskettes.

      (1) Class IX transactions- It is the responsibility of the operator to perform a class
IX transaction Blast for the unit's supporting SSA each duty day. This Blast will be
performed with the SSA prior to the transaction cutoff time of the supporting SSA. The
ULLS operator will receive current status back by the same method.

     (2) Maintenance- It is the responsibility of the ULLS-G operator to prepare a SAMS
transaction diskette for its supporting DSU shop office, each day the unit is working.

      (3) Diskette control- It is critical that diskette control is maintained at all times.
Units will maintain a control log and ensure diskettes are signed for at the DSU shop
office. Status diskettes coming back from SAMS and must be signed out at shop office.
The ULLS project officer is responsible for maintaining the diskette control log.

     (4) Diskette accountability- All diskettes removed from the operational area of the
ULLS-G will be signed out in a log book specifying the type diskette, date/time,
destination of diskette, e.g. transaction diskette, 20 Oct 87, 1300 hours, DSU, shop office.

   b. Diskette marking. All diskettes will be marked as follows:

      (1) Line # 1 = Diskette name (SAMS)
      (2) Line # 2 = Unit name

    c. The Commanders Exception Report will be run daily. This copy will be initialed
and signed by the unit commander or his designated representative and will be kept on
file for two (2) years.

   d. Current unit transaction will be run daily. The print outs and the diskette will be
turned into the DSU shop office. Both print outs will be signed by the unit and the DSU.
Copy two of the print out will be placed on file at the unit for 90 days.

   e. The Non Mission Capable Report will be run daily when changes are made at close
of business. The Unit Maintenance Technician or Sergeant will review and validate the
NMC report daily.

   f. The Dispatch Control Log Purge automatically runs the first working day of each
month when you sign on the system. The purge control log will be maintained on file for
thirty days. If there is an accident, the dispatch and purged control log must be kept until
released from investigation.


   a. Daily reconciliation and validation is generated automatically whenever you run the
daily automated status process. The print out will list all documents that are now closed
due to exception status (i.e. - BF, BG, CG, CA). All documents on this listing must be
screened to determine if a need still exists for the part. If the item is still needed, review
the exception status code to determine why it was canceled. Status codes can be found in
the ULLS EUM or Unit Supply Update 13. If the status codes do not determine why the
requisition was canceled, use the AMDF to review the NSN. Pay special attention to the
Acquisition Advice Code (AAC), Unit of Issue Code (UI) and Class of Supply Code
(SCMC). Check in the far right hand column to see if the NSN has been replaced.

Unit maintenance SOP (cont)

Problems with requests that cannot be resolved through the status codes or the AMDF
will be addressed to your Supply Support Activity Support Operations Officer or the
Battalion Maintenance Officer.

   b. Monthly Reconciliation and Validation of the Document Control Register (DCR)
will be accomplished using the Customer Due Out Reconciliation (PCN-AGL-C48)
provided by your Support Supply Activity (SSA). This list is used to reconcile all open
request recorded in your DCR and to validate your continued need for the item(s). The
Customer Due Out Reconciliation when validated will:

      (1) Advises your supporting DSU of which open request is still needed.

      (2) Identifies discrepancies in the DCR.

      (3) Identifies items released during the reporting period.

      (4) Provides your unit current supply status.

   c. All units will use the Monthly Customer Due Out Reconciliation (C48) to validate
their DCR. Units will run "Print Open DCR" from the ULLS-G menu. All requests
recorded in your DCR are compared with the document number on the C48. Annotate
any discrepancies on the C48.

    d. Once the reconciliation process is complete the unit will return one copy of the C48
to the SSA for appropriate action. The second copy of the C48 will be retained by the
unit for 90 days. Units and their supporting SSA representative will perform a face to
face, item by item validation and reconciliation monthly.

11. PRINT/PURGE INACTIVE DCR: The DCR will be purged and printed monthly.
Purged records will be printed and maintained on file for two years.


  a. The Equipment Maintenance Inspection Worksheet (PMCS) will be maintained in
the Equipment Record Folder (ERF) at all times. The ERF will contain the equipment
maintenance inspection worksheets of the complete system, i.e. radios, generators, etc.
For equipment not requiring Equipment Record Folders, the DA Form 5998-E will be
maintained in a central location, i.e. Arms Room, NBC Room, Commo Shop, etc.
  b. When maintenance or an inspection is to be performed, the operator's supervisor will
be given the log book in order to review the faults noted. Any additional faults found

Unit maintenance SOP (cont)

will be recorded under the maintenance faults section of the worksheet with the proper
status symbol IAW DA Pam 738-750. If no additional faults are found outside of those
listed by ULLS-G, the operator will enter the current date under the last listed fault
description and place his initials in the initial block. The completed worksheet will be
returned to the maintenance supervisor for review and/or to work off any additional
faults, order required parts, and to initial the corrections for parts installed.

   c. Following the maintenance supervisors review, the log book will be given to the
ULLS-G operator. The ULLS-G operator will update the equipment maintenance/
inspection worksheet in the computer and print a new worksheet for the equipment. The
new equipment maintenance inspection worksheet will be placed in the ERF for the next
PMCS period, dispatch or maintenance action.

   d. The following entries, as a minimum, will be listed on the equipment maintenance/
inspection worksheet by using the Maintenance faults add/update process (if applicable to
that specific equipment).

      (1) Brake Test information.

      (2) Coolant system testing (IAW TB 750-651).

      (3) Periodic Inspection for Material Handling Equipment and booms (IAW TB 43-

13. EQUIPMENT PERIODIC USAGE will be run as required by the ULLS-G system
and submitted to the direct support activity on the 15th of each month. (see # 34)

14. MAINTENANCE REQUESTS will be generated whenever a work order is turned
into DSU. The ULLS-G system prints out two copies of the Maintenance Request. Both
copies and SAMS transactions diskette must accompany the piece of equipment to Direct
Support maintenance. One copy must be signed by Direct Support and kept on file at the
unit as a receipt for the equipment. The Direct Support Unit will retain the other copy.
The completed Maintenance Request will be maintained at the unit for 90 days.

15. SAMS XMS ERROR LISTING is generated whenever the automated status update is
run. This listing shows all invalid Organizational Work Order Numbers (ORGWONs) or
status codes. After making corrections to the file, the printout may be destroyed.
16. ARMY OIL ANALYSIS REQUESTS will be run every time samples are due. The
completed requests returned from the AOAP lab will be maintained on file until the next
sample is taken.

20. PARTS RECEIVED/NOT INSTALLED REPORT will be printed once a week, as a
minimum. Maintenance supervisors will use this report to schedule their work load.
Routine repair parts will be installed within one week of receipt.

21. PARTS REQUEST (EXCEPTION DATA) is generated when a non standard NSN or
part number request is processed. This form takes the place of DD Form 1348-6.

 22. PARTS REQUEST (WALK-THRU) is generated when a walk-thru request is
processed. This is the actual request that must go to the SSA. Walk thru requests do not
write to the Unit Transaction File, so it is imperative that this request is handled carefully
at the SSA, to ensure it is input into SAARS-O.

23. PLL DEMAND ANALYSIS will be processed monthly. Upon completion of this
process, the system generates a PLL Change List. This list shows recommended changes
to the PLL file. Stockage Codes and Quantities may change as a result of this process.
Demand supported records will automatically increase or decrease if they meet the
criteria for PLL stockage. Records will not be automatically added or deleted from the
PLL file. The PLL change list will be reviewed by the maintenance supervisor. The
commander or designated representative must review the recommendations and sign the
listing. Add/ Delete/Change a PLL line will be used only after the commander or
designated representative has reviewed and signed the Change List. After all changes
have been
entered in the ULLS system the change listing will be retained for 90 days.

made for any discrepancies found. The inventory will be signed by the person performing
the inventory and verified by the unit commander or designated representative. The PLL
inventory printout will be maintained on file until the next inventory is completed.

27. PRINT All PLL LINES PROCESS will be printed after the PLL change list has been
completed and all changes input into the ULLS systems and signed by the Unit
Commander or Maintenance Officer. A copy will be maintained on file at the unit until
next PLL list is generated and signed.

28. PLL ZERO BALANCE REPORT will be generated weekly.

29. RECOVERABLE ITEMS REQUEST is generated whenever a recoverable item is
requested. This is the actual request that must go to the SSA. The Unit Commander or a
designated representative must sign this request. This request will not write to your
Supply Transaction. After the item has been installed, the recoverable item will sent to
the SSA with a turn-in document (D6Z). One copy will be turned-in with the item and
the other will be kept on file.

printed turn-in document for the purpose of turning in excess items. This sheet must
accompany the item for turn in. This process will not write to your supply transaction
file, a signed copy will be kept on file.


   a. The C70 is generated by the SSA monthly. This list identifies recoverable repair
parts that have been requested without a matching turn-in recorded. It will also list all
recoverable items that were turned in, for which no matching issues were made.
   b. This listing will be compared to the DCR using the inquire by NIIN process and all
previous DCR purges. All document identifier codes for request codes AOA, A5A, D6Z
and D7A must have an entry in the remarks column of the C70. Remarks on the C70 can
include, "Initial Issue" for PLL additions or increases, the document number for the
corresponding turn-in, or "action” IAW AR 735-5 for items that are lost, damaged/
destroyed through causes other than fair wear and tear.

Unit maintenance SOP (cont)

the SSA for appropriate action. Maintain the other copy on file until the next
Recoverable Items Control List is completed.

32. AUTOMATED FOLLOW-UP PROCESS will be processed bi-weekly by the unit
ULLS operator. This process will generate AF1 follow-up requests for all open DCR
records using the parameters set in the unit parameter file. The AF1 requests will be
written to the supply status and will be Blasted to SAARS-O. Units should receive status
back on all AF1 requests within three days.

33. ARMY MATERIAL STATUS SYSTEMS (AMSS) has been developed to replace the
manual reporting requirements outlined in AR 700-138, Army Logistics’ Readiness and
Sustainability. The reporting process will be executed on or about COB on the last work
day of the end of the report period.

Operations with a value of 0 – 12 would be judged as low risk. A value of 13 – 24 is seen as a caution area;
complete unit command involvement is warranted. A “caution” rating should be given special
consideration if only one or two elements have significantly raised the overall risk level. For example, a
long flight through changing time zones immediately before a 48 hour tactical mission would be cause for a
serious concern even though the operation’s overall risk assessment falls well within the “caution” range.
High risk operations assigned a value of 24 – 30 require coordination, with the next higher level command.
