This area of the DMSMS community provides information on resources that can assist in identification, cataloging, technical & risk assessment, solution determination, reporting, and metrics of issues related to DMSMS.

There are a number of activities with links to web sites that provide guidance on mitigation of DMSMS issues. There are links to commercial and government tools that permit cost effective ways to assess & resolve DMSMS-related issues. Inclusion in this list does not constitute a Government endorsement of a tool.  Although many of these tools have been used by many organizations for many years, it is the responsibility of the user to determine the accuracy and validity of the output of a software tool.

Additionally, The DAU Tools Catalog can provide additional tools. To locate DMSMS Related tools, set filter for "Diminishing Manufacturing Sources & Material Shortages (DMSMS)".
