Abstract:

The inventory of SKO comprises 32 thousand different Army-used items, of which 29 thousand are secondary items which are already adequately managed by secondary item procedures. Technical manuals document the contents of 2,339 items, which are already adequately managed by major item procedures. In between are 682 items, the contents of which are documented by Supply Catalogs and Component Listings, and which are commonly called SKO. About 500 of these SKO are maintenance-related either common-type or equipment oriented 14 are explosive and about 168 are neither. This particular subset of SKO should be differentiated from other SKO by use of Type Codes so that the perennial question, When is a SKO can be permanently laid to rest. Author
