Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services
United States Military, Preventive MaintenanceChecks and Services, or PMCS, are the checks, service and maintenance performed before, during, and after any type of movement, or before the use of all types of military equipment. Every piece of military equipment has a PMCS Chart used to go over every detail needed or noted to ensure the proper function of every mechanical item or non-mechanical surface.
Doing a PMCS check every time, equipment is used will help to reduce the number of failures. This will reduce the number of injuries during training exercises as well as improve effectivness in combat.
