Abstract : This report discusses the six serial number reporting, control, and management systems used by the Army--Small Arms Accounting System, the Army Maintenance Management System (and its replacement, the Standard Army Maintenance System), The Aviation Component Intensive Management System, the Armament Management Information System-Logistics, the tail number control of aircraft, and the USA numbering system for vehicles. The conclusion is that there is no overlap or duplication between systems. The principal recommendation is that materiel selected for management by serial number should be limited to those items which have a significant probability of being modified in future years.
