component

1. An assembly, or part thereof, that is essential to the operation of some larger assembly and is an immediate subdivision of the assembly to which it belongs. Note: For example, a radio receiver may be a component of a complete radio set consisting of a combined transmitter-receiver, i.e., a transceiver. The same radio receiver could also be a subsystem of the combined transmitter-receiver, in which case the IF amplifier section would be a component of the receiver but not of the radio set. Similarly, within the IF amplifier section, items, such as resistors, capacitors, vacuum tubes, and transistors, are components of that section. 2. In logistics, a part, or combination of parts having a specified function, that can only be installed or replaced as an entity. [JP1]. 3. In material, an assembly or any combination of parts, subassemblies, and assemblies mounted together in manufacture, assembly, maintenance, or rebuild. [JP1]    4. A self-contained part of a system that implements a set of functions   [CESG].  5.  An identifiable and self-contained portion of a Target of Evaluation [ITSEC].
