A manual should be divided into parts only where it is desired to separate the coverage for the various maintenance levels; where more than one model is covered, and the difference between models is so great that coverage together is not feasible; or in any situation where a breakdown between chapter and volume can be justified. A part should always be a division of a volume, never a separate volume in itself.
