Sometimes a module, sometimes an assembly, sometimes an entire
computer or computer system.  Some FMPS include nested FMPS for
subassemblies or modules.

The exact content of an FMPS varies quite a bit. Some are only
schematics, most also include component placement diagrams, some even
include the PCB etc patterns. Some include parts lists. Some include
wirelists but most do not. For processors, some include flow diagrams
or PROM contents.  It's whatever subset of the engineering drawings
that the service organization thought would be necessary or useful to
field service, so many things we might want from an historical
perspective are not included.

They are US B size (11 inch by 17 inch), stapled on the left edge, and
hole punched on the left edge for use in a large binder.
