Arsenals manufacture and depots remanufacture major end items
and components that support the military.
(Bad news first!) Building the component lists is extremely tedious and probably one of the most time-consuming parts of planning and executing the CoC; however, (now the good news!) the time you devote to developing accurate lists of all the additional pieces of property that are accountable with the end item
, the easier it will be during your actions on the objective when you are trying to actually conduct the inventory.
The program manager for any program, project, product, or system that has planned deliverables of military equipment meeting the capitalization threshold (currently $100,000) is already required to prepare a detailed program description as part of the acquisition strategy at Milestone C or any other decision point that leads to production or procurement of end items
to be used for operations.

In a traditional manufacturing environment, the quantity of parts required to produce each end item
From an operations perspective, the process works as follows: Customer demand pulls end items
from a warehouse.
h = the peg between a particular end item
and a purchased part through a particular branch of the product structure.
Change reports can be generated using the date ranges of changes, end items
, unit identification codes (also known as force elements), accounting requirements code (ARC), and other search parameters.
* Basic Issue Items (BII) are used to set up and operate equipment or perform emergency repairs of end items
. BII stay with end items
throughout their service life, even through turn-in.
Breakout of components of end items
permits the government to purchase the components directly from the manufacturer or supplier and furnish them to the end item
manufacturer as government-furnished material for future acquisitions.
Industry representatives proposed that the State Department consider licensing an entire support package in conjunction with licensing the export of the end item
. This would speed up the LOA development process of follow-on support cases and allow an easier exchange of components between purchasers of that end item
