Acceptance. The act of an authorized representative of the Government by which the Government assumes for itself, or as an agent of another, ownership of existing and identified supplies tendered, or approves specific services rendered, as partial or complete performance of the contract on the part of the contractor.

Adopted items. Items approved for inclusion in the DoD logistics system through assignment of National Stock Number (NSN) by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), or recognition by DLA of item Reference Numbers as established by manufacturer's part number, specification or drawing, or trade name.

Altered item. An altered item is an existing item, under the control of another design activity or defined by a nationally recognized standardization document, that is subjected to physical alteration to meet the design requirements. This could include something as simple as attaching version label to an EPROM to indicate when it was program and what version of the software was use; the EPROM than becomes an altered item because it requires the label to be attached to make it a finished part.

Approved item name. An approved item name is a name approved by the Directorate of Cataloging, Defense Logistics Services Center and published in the Cataloging Handbook H6, Federal Item Name Directory for Supply Cataloging.

Artwork Master. An accurately-scaled configuration which is used to produce the Production Master.

Assembly. A number of parts or sub-assemblies or any combination thereof joined together to perform a specific function, and subject to disassembly without degradation of any of the parts. NOTE: The distinction between an assembly and a subassembly is determined by individual application. An assembly in one instance may be a sub-assembly in another where it forms a portion of a higher assembly.

Associated list. A tabulation of pertinent engineering information pertaining to an item depicted on an engineering drawing or on a set of engineering drawings.
