Abstract : Item Mission Essentiality Codes (IMECs) were developed on Military Essentiality Codes (MECs) and Mission Criticality Codes (MCCs). The IMEC represents the importance of an item to the mission assignment of the military unit in which the item is installed. Most items were assigned more than one IMEC value because each application of an item received an IMEC. The study focused on selecting a unique essentiality value for a National Item Identification Number (NIIN) by considering the various IMECs assigned to the item. The analysis was performed on 7G and 7H cognizance symbol (cog) material managed by the Navy Ships Parts Control Center (SPCC). (Author)
