assembly number relates to the Occupational Field 12
skill required to install it. The groupings are numbered,
as shown in table 9-1.

Tailoring Components and Facilities
When you use the ABFC system, remember to tailor
it to your specific needs. Know your exact mission and
its requirements. Choose the components, the facilities,
or the assemblies that best fit or can be tailored to meet
your desired goals. Develop modular elements to serve
similar functions in various locations.
requirements for a specific base cannot be defined,
economically designed, nor supported within the
general system. However, the base development
planner knows the specific location, mission, unit
composition, and availability of other assets. The
planner can then select from the ABFC system the
components or facilities that satisfy these specific
requirements. Tailoring is then applied to the
preplanned ABFC assets to come up with what is
Tailor components or facilities by either (1)
deleting or adding facilities or assemblies and (2)
specifying requirements for the Tropical or North
Temperate Zone. Assemblies required only in Tropical
installations are coded with the letter T in the zone
column to the right of the assembly description.
Assemblies required only in North Temperate
installations are coded with the letter N. Uncoded
assemblies are common to both zones.
Use and Application of the
Facilities Planning Guide
Although a listing in the P-437 may help you order
individual items in general supply, it does NOT replace
stock lists of systems commands or bureaus, offices,
single managers, or inventory control points. Stock
numbers and descriptions can be verified through
appropriate stock lists. You are responsible for
verifying stock numbers when ordering a component, a
facility, or an assembly.
COMPONENT. Figure 9-2 shows a typical
component breakdown of the P-25. A brief header
describes the mission and capabilities of the component.
The site plan, pertaining to each component, is shown
by a NAVFAC drawing number. However, drawings
in volume 1, part 1, are indexed by component
designation, not drawing numbers. The word NONE
appears for components that have no site plans. The
facilities required to make the component operative are
listed in numerical sequence by DoD category code.
The alpha suffix for each facility designator indicates
differences between sizes, types, or layouts of facilities
with the same functional purpose. Facility capacity is
expressed in terms of the units of measure used in the
Category Codes Facilities, NAVFAC P-72. The
component capacity is figured by multiplying the
facility capacity and the quantity. Weight and cube are
measured in normal units for export packing.
