Glossary:Shop Replaceable Unit

Jump to: navigation, search


A shop-replaceable unit (SRU) or shop-replaceable component (SRC) is a modular component of an airplane, ship or spacecraft that is designed to be replaced by a technician at a backshop. Repair at backshops is known as field-level maintenance or intermediate-level (I-level) maintenance.

SRUs are similar in nature to line-replaceable units (LRUs), but rather than being complete functional units, represent component functions, such as circuit card assemblies, of a larger LRU. SRUs are typically assigned logistics control numbers (LCNs) or work unit codes (WUCs) to manage logistics operations.

SRUs can be stocked to allow for quick remove and replace (R&R) operations on their parent LRUs, while also allowing for more extended repair operations at the backshop.
