Significance and Use
This practice establishes a standard equipment control methodology to aid in fulfillment of shortages derived from production requirements or equipment failures.
This practice encourages an inclusive understanding and communication of the control and tracking of equipment, and enables meaningful discussion between parties with interest in the equipment.
This practice is intended to foster and enable additional standard practices related to or based on these terms and concepts.
1.1 This practice describes the process by which open production and failure related demand requirements are fulfilled using existing equipment components.
Note 1—Differing approval requirements are generally dictated by ownership issues. For example, approvals for cannibalization/reclamation of company-owned property may vary substantially from that required for customer-owned property. In all cases, the specific approach to approvals and the levels of approval required are prescribed by the entity with title to/ownership of the property. These requirements are internal to the owning entity. In general, company-owned property is handled in accordance with established practice specific to each individual entity while customer-owned property is handled based upon established practices specific to each entity or as specified within a contractual document.
1.2 This practice is intended to be applicable and appropriate for all equipment-holding entities.
1.3 This practice covers property categorized as equipment.
1.4 This practice can be applied on to an individual item of equipment, groupings of equipment, or to all, or a subset of an entity's equipment.
1.5 This practice clarifies and enables effective and efficient support of equipment in accordance with the provisions of Practice E 2279.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
