PROCEDURES FOR ADDING A MEDICAL REPAIR PART TO THE DEMAND-
SUPPORTED PRESCRIBED LOAD LIST
Since much of this task involves knowledge gained in the prerequisite subcourse
MD0357, those parts of the task will be mentioned to indicate the sequence of
performance but not covered in any detail. Assume you are a repair parts clerk in a
repair facility and have received three demands for a nonstocked (fringe) item within six
months. This is the requirement for adding items to the PLL in the active Army. For
USAR and ARNG units, the requirement is three demands within 360 days.
a. Post the new repair part entries in the "demands" section of a DA Form 3318,
Record of Demands--Title Insert.
b. Determine the initial stockage level for a demand-supported item.
(1) Stock-level tables are used to determine the initial stockage level for a
demand-supported item. These tables are based on the demand rate and the average
customer wait time (ACWT). There are five stock-level tables. There is a 10-day, 15-
day, 20-day, 25-day, and 30-day ACWT Table.
Determine the initial stockage level for a demand supported item as
(a) Add the quantities of the three demands which qualified the item for
(b) Find this quantity in the "Total Quantity Demanded" row of the
proper stock level table. Use the ACWT Table directed by your Major Army Command
(MACOM). Army National Guard units use the 30-day ACWT Table. If your MACOM
does not direct otherwise, use the 15-day ACWT Table (DA PAM 710-2-1) that is
partially shown in figure 3-1.
(c) Find the column across the top of the table showing the number of
days it took for three demands for the item to occur.
(d) The initial stockage quantity is found where the row (horizontal) and
column (vertical) cross.
c. Prepare a request on DA Form 2765-1 for a sufficient quantity to fill the
current requests plus the initial stockage level as determined above.
