New DAU Training on DMSMS Component Research

Following quickly on the heels of last week’s announcement of the deployment of LOG 0660 Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Executive Overview, we are pleased to announce the deployment of our newest life cycle logistics online training (OLT) course entitled LOG 0670 DMSMS Basic Component Research! This new course covers Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) basic information and processes. Specific component research best practices and in-depth processes, including providing detailed information about how to adapt the concepts and processes to an individual DOD program are covered in greater detail. Students will have opportunity to review some DMSMS program scenarios, evaluate for the program’s requirements and level of proactivity and will be able to make DMSMS management decisions incorporating lessons learned through real world examples.

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 once again 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).

Astute observers will note that DAU previously offered a similarly titled course. This new LOG 0670 online training course (OLT) leverages updated content from -- and replaces -- the now-retired CLL 207 continuous learning module. You will also note the replacement of CLL designation by LOG, which represents the new standard for all DAU logistics and product support courses as we move forward. This new LOG 0670 also represents the fourteenth of these revamped, revised, and re-designated DAU life cycle logistics OLT modules, which now include:

So what does this all this mean for me, you might ask? DAU's legacy three-digit course numbering schema is gradually being phased out and replaced by a new four-digit course numbering taxonomy. Through attrition, updated and new courses will eventually all be re-designated with four-digit course numbers and LOG prefixes. These changes are being made for a range of reasons including to align with updated course content, provide better configuration control, improve standardization, and reduce the number of course designations, among others.
