AH-64/UH-60: Stop Duplicate Unique Item Identifiers in TAMMS-A/MCDS

Mechanics, components on the Apache and Black Hawk should not have duplicate unique item identifiers in The Army Maintenance Management System-Aviation Maintenance Consolidated Database System (TAMMS-A/MCDS).

Right now, 1,396 T700-GE-701D engines have errors showing at least one duplicate. To identify and fix the problem, open the component status history page in the MCDS. If there’s a conflict for that component, you’ll see the words UII CONFLICT in the upper right corner. Click on the words UII CONFLICT. The subsequent page details the conflict.

AMCOM has flagged many of these conflicts and considers them equally significant. In other words, all Army units should address all flags, no matter the reason, as soon as they are identified by quality control, whether entered as administrative corrections or entered due to safety concerns.
