The article explains the transition of the U.S. Army from a four-level to a two-level maintenance (TLM) system. A comparison of the two systems based on an example of a typical maintenance action is offered. Under the TLM system, the repair work has been transferred off the battlefield with the segregation of on-system and off-system tasks. In the author's view, only the tools and the training are needed to perform the tasks needed with TLM.
