Abstract : This report includes a manual of the M-2 Bailey Bridge (M2BB) Component Inspection Procedures which were developed from April 1996 to November 1996. The M2BB is an old system of the Army, and there were no inspection procedures available to classify their components using the Federal Condition Codes before this development. Early in FY96, the US Army Aviation-troop Command (ATCOM) tasked the Support Bridge Team (SBT), US Army Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to develop inspection procedures to evaluate the Bailey Bridge assets. These procedures were developed to inspect all components of the M2BB basic set and classify them as serviceable with qualification or not. In July 1996, ATCOM requested SBT to update these procedures to include components of M2BB erection equipment set and conversion set and using the Federal Condition Codes B (serviceable with qualification), E (limited restored), F (unserviceable but repairable), G (unserviceable - incomplete), and H (unserviceable and condemned) in order to evaluate Bailey Bridge assets in Europe. During the progress of the development, the target audience of soldiers with MOS 12C was always kept in mind. In November 1996, the M-2 Bailey Bridge Component Inspection Procedures were finalized and put together as a manual.
