Define 2A DR priority?
Adversely affects an essential capability or negatively impacts OSS&E and adequate performance is achieved through significant compensation or acceptable workaround.
Define 2B DR priority.
Adversely affects technical, cost, or schedule risks to the project or the life cycle support of the system but an acceptable workaround is known.
Define 2C DR priority.
Does not effect essential capability but may result in user/ operator inconvenience or annoyance
Define 2D DR priority.
Results in inconvenience or annoyance for development or MX personnel but does not prevent the accomplishment of the task.
Define 2E DR priority.
Other effects, such as enhancements having little or no impact to OSS&E under current requirements.
What MXG agency is tasked with providing technical assistance for DRs?
When an OI crosses organizational group lines, at what level should it be published?

Can Contractors act as the POC for an OI?
No, only AF civil service employees and military members.

What flight within the MXG normally acts as POC for SAs?
Programs and Resources
What’s the most important thing to know about SAs?
Learn what’s in them, be aware of what’s required to uphold your end of the bargain.
Pertaining to aircraft and equipment, What are historical documentation?
Permanent records of significant maintenance actions.
Who is responsible for determining which items need historical reporting and informing The Single Manager so the items can be identified for reporting?
When are printed copies of the AFTO IMT 95 not required to accompany end-items upon transfer to/from another location?
When the to/from locations have access to the necessary MIS ( MX Information System) to retrieve historical info.
