    Theater Logistics Support Center - Europe

    KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany - The Theater Logistics Service Center- Europe's commitment to the collective security of NATO and to the enduring peace and stability in the region has led them to develop innovative ways to increase the readiness for Soldiers and unit equipment within the United States Army Europe area of responsibility.

    Army Regulation 750-1 states: "Operator/crew maintenance is the most critical operation of the Army maintenance system." Preventative Maintenance Checks and Service (PCMS) is the foundation of field-level maintenance. PMCS as a system includes all checks and services performed by the operator/crew and the field maintenance section. It is utilized as a preventive maintenance measure to identify and correct faults as early as possible, and to perform the required services on all assigned equipment, to maintain its useful service life. AR 750-1 further states that commanders are required to maintain equipment at operator and field maintenance PMCS standards.

    One way TLSC-E is accomplishing this goal is by assisting units with maintenance-related duties and responsibilities. The Quality Assurance team within the TLSC-E headquarters, led by Thomas Gruhn and Andreas Leineweber, developed and implemented the maintenance and service labels that will be affixed to unit equipment displaying important information such as when the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR /IAW AER 55-4) certification was performed and what services were completed by one of two TLSC-E maintenance activities: Maintenance Activity Vilseck (MAV) or Maintenance Activity Kaiserslautern (MAK).

    With the TLSC-E and unit personnel working in collaboration, the unit's maintenance data management will be as accurate as possible, resulting in higher readiness rates that will help in retrieving data that has been corrupted due to automation glitches or missing due to lost or damaged equipment log books.
