The airplane and engine manufacturers designs most of the tools that are used for on-airplane maintenance and many of the tools used for component maintenance. These tools are considered specialized because they are designed only for its particular airplane and engine models. Aircraft manufacturers and the FAA allow the use of equivalent tools and equipment in AMMs and CMMs. For commercial tools or equipment, equivalency is determined relative to the airplane test or measurement result specification stated in the respective AMM procedures. For special tools and equipment, establishing equivalency is a much more detailed process that involves ensuring that the proposed tool or equipment is equivalent to the recommended tool or equipment in form, fit, and function.  It is important to know that the airplane and engine manufacturers does not manufacture the specialized tools that it designs.
