2. Explanation of Columns in Section II.
a. Functional Group Number. The func-
tional group is a numerical group set up on
a functional basis. The applicable functional
grouping indexes (obtained from TB 750-93-
1 Functional Grouping Codes) are listed on
the Maintenance Assignment in the appro-
priate numerical sequence. These indexes are
normally set up in accordance with their func-
tion and proximity to each other.
This column contains a brief description of the
components of each functional group.
c. Maintenance Operations and Mainte-
nance Levels. This column lists the various

incipient electrical or mechanical fail-
ure by measuring the mechanical or
electrical characteristics of the item and
comparing those characteristics with
authorized standards. Tests will be
