B-4. FUNCTIONAL GROUPS.
Standard functional groupings are not considered
feasible for aviation ground support equipment due to
variation and complexity. Therefore, variations to
functional groupings may occur.
B-5. MAINTENANCE CATEGORIES AND WORK
The maintenance categories (levels) AVUM, AVIM,
and DEPOT are listed on the Maintenance Allocation
Chart with individual columns that indicate the work
times for maintenance functions at each maintenance

Common tool sets (not individual tools ), special
