Abstract : Part Marking: Lack of uniform requirements for marking of military parts together with the progressive decrease in size of electronic components presents problems in identifying components for replacement and failure analysis. A uniform system of marking is recommended which is based on the Federal Supply Code (H4-1), Date Code (MIL-STD-456) and the part number recommended in Section B (Part Numbering) of this report. Part Numbering: There is little consistency in the method of creating identifying part numbers in military specifications. Industry is divided between favoring significant or nonsignificant part numbers. This study, initiated to analyze existing and potential numbering systems, has resulted in a recommendation that a uniform system be established based on the specification number. The recommendation includes provisions for both partially significant and nonsignificant dash numbers depending upon the situation. (Author)
