(2) Count NMCM time until all work on the deficiencies is done and/or the
lack of a needed part stops the work. When the lack of a part is the only reason the
equipment cannot be made FMC, not mission capable/supply (NMCS) time starts. See
paragraph c below.
(3) Unit NMCM covers all time used at the unit level for NMC maintenance.
Unit NMCM includes time needed to deliver equipment and wait for acceptance of
equipment sent to support maintenance.
(4) Support NMCM covers all time used at support for maintenance,
inspection, and awaiting shop delays on NMC faults. Normal scheduled services and
inspections and minor repair work for other than an NMC fault do not count as NMC for
the DA Form 2406.
c. Not Mission Capable/Supply. Equipment unable to perform its combat
missions because of a supply shortage is placed in this classification.
(1) Not Mission Capable/Supply time starts when no more maintenance work can be done
NMC fault because a needed part is not on hand.
