Parts Management Knowledge Sharing Portal

The Parts Management Knowledge Sharing Portal (PMKSP) is designed to provide an easily accessible knowledge base for parts management related information and a forum for parts management related discussions. The purpose of the DoD Parts Management Program is to establish parts management best practices across DoD in order to increase weapon system availability and reduce total ownership costs. Selecting preferred parts during weapon system design drives positive outcomes throughout the life cycle of a system.

DMSMS & Parts Management Proven Processes Webinars
View Announcement

The DoD Parts & Material Management (PMM) leadership at the OUSD(R&E) Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) is pleased to announce the launch of the DMSMS & Parts Management Proven Processes Webinars series.

Webinar Series Overview: Are you satisfied with the results of your Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) program and its effect on your customer? While DMSMS is inevitable, it does not have to be thought of as a sequence of periodic crises that will cost you money. Policy, guidance, and best practices describe ways to conduct proactive, robust DMSMS management that routinely resolves issues. And it helps design systems to be DMSMS-resilient.

Are you creating too much downstream work by paying insufficient attention to part selection during design? Effective parts management is an important contributor to the long-term success of any program because an end-item’s reliability, maintainability, supportability, assurance, and supply-chain security are dependent on the parts that comprise it. The DoD Parts Management Program establishes parts management best practices to increase readiness and reduce total ownership costs.

This webinar series provides a cross-functional forum for promoting, shaping, and coordinating government and industry approaches to effective DMSMS and parts management. This series leverages subject matter experts to increase your knowledge, awareness, and ability to support your program effectively.

The Defense Microelectronics Activity is starting a webinar series hosted by the Defense Acquisition University.  The purpose of these webinars is to inform the acquisition community of the microelectronics solutions and services available through DMEA. 

April 2, 2024 - Trusted Microelectronics for the Warfighter

This initial webinar in the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) series is the keynote introduction of the webinar series. Presented by DMEA Director Dr. Nicholas Martin, this session provides an overview of the mission and organization of DMEA and its role as a trusted technical source for microelectronics solutions within the DoD. Dr. Martin will describe how DMEA provides flexible, full-spectrum microelectronics solutions and accelerates microelectronics acquisition solutions for weapon system sustainment.

June 25, 2024 - Acquiring Trusted Microelectronics

This webinar addresses how acquisition programs can access trusted microelectronics through the Trusted Access Program Office (TAPO). TAPO has successfully developed a reliable source of parts that gives the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community access to advanced commercial processes, fabrication tools and fabrication services. TAPO also serves the needs of acquisition programs through accrediting suppliers whose services cover a broad range of technologies, both new and legacy, and for both classified and unclassified applications.

Speaker: Aman S. Gahoonia, Program Director, Trusted Access Program Office

Weapons Systems Impact Tool (WSIT)

Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

The Weapons Systems Impact Tool (WSIT) enables Government program managers to research the relationships between parts, weapon systems and specifications and standards.

SD-19 Parts Management Guide, December 2023
Document Type:
Document
Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

The Department of Defense (DoD) Adaptive Acquisition Framework (AAF) establishes a set of acquisition pathways that are designed to allow for tailored strategies that support the delivery of better solutions and capabilities faster. The AAF approach emphasizes transparency, speed of delivery, continuous adaptation, and frequent modular upgrades.

This change in how the DoD approaches system development requires program managers, system engineers, product support managers, and contractors to design tailorable parts management approaches, including engineering design considerations, that align with the specific acquisition pathway selected. Engineering design considerations include traditional design, system security engineering, and supply chain risk management.

This publication is intended to be used by government acquisition activities and defense contractors. The document provides government and industry managers guidance to support achieving a more disciplined and integrated parts management approach. The parts management approach ensures that acquisition activities and defense contractors meet system requirements and balance the costs and risk of selection considerations for DoD programs.

This version of the SD-19 document updates the December 2013 version, and it introduces a new parts management paradigm and vision that are achieved by increasing the level of discipline applied in program office part selection oversight by emphasizing and applying best practices found in MILSTD-11991—General Standard for Parts, Materials, and Processes—and the SD-26—DMSMS and Parts Management Contracting Guide. The new paradigm also relies on collecting and analyzing records on parts selection oversight activities and their effects on cost, schedule, and performance; and, obtaining part selection data and using tools to analyze the data in support of best practices.

Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

This instruction establishes the Integrated Life Cycle Management (ILCM) guidelines and procedures for Air Force (AF) personnel who develop, review, approve, or manage systems, subsystems, end-items, services, and activities (for the purpose of this publication referred to as programs throughout this document) procured under Department of Defense (DoD) Instruction (DoDI) 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System.

DoD 5134.16, October 2018
Document Type:
Document
Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

Establishes policy, assigns responsibilities and functions, and prescribes relationships and authorities for the DASD(SE) pursuant to section 139b of title 10, United States Code (Reference (a)) and in accordance with the authority in DoD Directive 5134.01 (Reference (b)) and DoD Instruction 5000.02 (Reference (c)).

MIL STD 11991B, October 2023
Document Type:
Document
Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

This standard establishes the requirements for parts, materials, and processes (PM&P) for use during the development, production, and sustainment of military systems. These requirements directly apply to the design, manufacture, and support of military systems. This standard also provides criteria to evaluate the suitability of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) items for incorporation into military systems.

SD-18 Parts Requirements and Application Guide, November 2020
Document Type:
Page Link
Modified: Changed by Bernard, Sweeney - Student on
Summary

The Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) changed the status of SD-18 from active to legacy. This means the SD-18 will not be updated, but remains accessible on a website located at:

 https://www.navsea.navy.mil/Home/WarfareCenters/NSWCCrane/Resources/SD18.aspx 

Please be cognizant of this status change when using SD-18. The SD-18 is a guide that offers extensive information for the selection, design, procurement, and assessment of parts used in military systems. It was last updated in 2018. Preparing Activity: OSD-SO

SD-18 "Parts Requirements and Application Guide" provides guidance when using military and commercial parts in military environments. It provides part acquisition guidelines for Program Managers, System Program Offices, and Original Equipment Manufacturers. SD-18 provides guidance on how the Department of Defense and its contractors can cooperatively select devices that will result in the lowest cost of ownership for the DoD.
