AILORING COMPONENTS AND FACILITIES
When you are using the ABFC system, remember that tailoring it to serve your specific needs is possible. Know your exact mission and requirements. Choose the components, facilities, or assemblies that best fit or can be tailored to meet your desired goals. Modular elements can be developed to serve similar functions in various locations. The exact 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 needed.
Components or facilities can be tailored by (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.
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, facility, or assembly.
