6.3.3 Army Designs. - Army designs are reflected on detailed drawings
which completely depict all the information necessary for the fabrication
of the item of inspection equipment.
The contractor need provide no design
when an Army design is listed for an item of inspection equipment. Army de-
signs fall into two basic classifications; mandatory (designated "MU") and
non-mandatory (indicated by drawing or Federal Stock Number). When an in-
spection equipment list references mandatory Army designs, the contractor
shall comply with and use these designs accordingly. The contractor may,
however, in connection with non-mandatory designs and with the approval of
the Government, design alternate inspection equipment or use comparable com-
mercial equipment to facilitate his operations. Such contractor prepared
designs or commercial equipment selections must be approved by the Govern-
ment prior to fabrication or procuring of the equipment.
Designs shall be
submitted for approval as specified in 6.3.5.
