A routine EOSS feedback is one of two categories,
A or B. Category A feedbacks are used to request EOSS
materials. Category B feedbacks describe technical
discrepancies that are not urgent. Recommended
revisions could be an addition or deletion, or a change
in the sequence of steps, the parameters, or the diagrams.
PREPARATION. Submit routine feedbacks
using the Planned Maintenance System (PMS) form,
OPNAV 4790/7B. Each revision requested requires a
If the same change is requested for
several documents, it may be explained once and then
listed on the documents affected. Rearranging several
steps in a document because of a single technical change
counts as one revision. On the other hand, more than
one technical recommendation in a single document
requires more than one form. The printed information
on the PMS form does not apply to EOSS. Maintain a
separate EOSS feedback system. When using this form
for EOSS the following instructions apply:
1. Fill in the ships name in the FROM block.
2. In the SERIAL # block, fill in a EOSS feedback
number consisting of the year and the feedbacks
Routine feedbacks must
have a different set of feedback numbers than
urgent feedbacks. Category A and B routine
feedbacks should share the same set of numbers.
3. In the DATE block, fill in the date the feedback
is to be mailed.
4. In the TO block, mark the appropriate square for
category A or B feedbacks. For category A

5. Mark the SUBJECT block as follows:
In the SYSTEM block, fill in either EOP or
EOCC as appropriate.
In the SYSCOM MIP block, fill in the
document code number (for example,
TG/0471/0980 and HBWL/0099/0980).
Leave the APL and SYSCOM MRC blocks
6. Leave the DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM
block blank except when you are commenting
on a procedure that has not been finalized for
your use. In that case mark the OTHER block
with the words, HOT CHECKS. Situations
when this would apply include a package that
has been hot checked but not approved and
installed, a package that belongs to another ship
of the class, or before one ships development,
