New DAU DMSMS Training for Executives

Written by: Bill Kobren | January 5, 2021

We are pleased to announce the deployment of our newest life cycle logistics online training (OLT) course entitled LOG 0660 Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Executive Overview. This course provides concise Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) information for the Executive or Program Manager requiring an understanding of how DMSMS impacts their operations. DMSMS impacts multiple processes including reliability, maintainability, supply chain efficiency, funding, policy, procedure, and staffing. This course is tailored to offer the executive a perspective of management/supervisory actions necessary to enable effective DMSMS mitigation, thereby enhancing mission readiness, efficiency, and cost effectiveness. This one hour course is designed to empower the Manager through an understanding of the challenges and options to ensure proper establishment of an optimum proactive DMSMS team.

The new LOG 0660 is intended for all workforce members, regardless of functional community involved in the acquisition and sustainment of major weapons systems and equipment, including program managers, systems engineers, and life cycle logisticians. For additional insights into this important topic, see also DoD Instruction 4245.15 Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages Management, the SD-22 DMSMS: A Guidebook of Best Practices for Implementing a Robust DMSMS Management Program, and the DMSMS Knowledge Sharing Portal (DKSP).

We would also be remiss if we did not express our thanks and appreciation to the many DoD and Service DMSMS subject matter experts who supported this important learning asset update, in particular the DoD DMSMS leadership team headed up by the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO).
