Welcome to the DMSMS Knowledge Sharing Community Homepage !
 
The Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Knowledge Sharing Portal (DKSP) is focused on being a non-biased one-stop provider of DMSMS related information, resources and material to empower the Department of Defense (DoD) community, both Organic and Industrial, to implement best practices for monitoring, tracking, resolving, and performing analytical logistic and engineering analysis related to obsolescence impacts. Utilization of the DKSP as a resource facilitates optimal resolution, test, parts management, design, upgrade and redesign methodologies, thereby minimizing detrimental weapons systems readiness resulting from DMSMS and obsolescence impacts.

The long-awaited instruction released by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment effectively gave credence to decades of self-governance within the multi-functional discipline of DMSMS and the importance of continued effective and consistent management is clear.

Defense Acquisition University's Hot Topic Forum

Strategic Parts & Material Management: A Proactive Lifecycle Approach to Handle Obsolescence

In a world driven by automation and technology advancement, obsolescence is inevitable. It is not a matter of if it will impact system supportability but when. The problem is not obsolescence; it is how we manage the challenges it represents.

Robin Brown, Parts and DMSMS Management Program Manager for the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and LMI's David Greinke will discuss how to use a proactive parts and obsolescence management approach throughout a system's lifecycle to reduce costs and risks to the warfighter mission.

July 15, 2020 | 10:00-11:30 a.m. (ET)

Location: Virtual Event | Hosted by: Defense Acquisition University Alumni Association
