APLs/AELs are compared against the actual
installed equipment. Failure to do this could result
in processing the wrong APL/AEL and possibly
ordering the incorrect repair parts support.
See figure 2-10.
The second step is to validate the actual
installed components/subcomponents against the
basic APL. The APL obtained from the general
distribution microfiche bank is not tailored to
each equipment on every ship. It will list
components that are supported under their own
APLs that may be in your equipment. All
components actually installed in the equipment
must be validated against the components listed
on the basic APL to make sure the correct
component APLs will be processed. Therefore,
when reporting the installation of a new
equipment to the SPCC, you should report the
actual components installed in the equipment in
the same manner. The APLs provided with your
new COSAL will reflect the actual installed
components as reflected in the WSF. The same
procedures must be followed in validating the
subcomponents listed on the component APL.

Now you must determine the number of
installed equipments so you can select the correct
