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 SD-22 DMSMS Management Guidebook provides best practices for implementing an effective Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) management program throughout a system's life cycle. A DMSMS issue is the loss, or impending loss, of manufacturers or suppliers of items, raw materials, or software. DMSMS management is a multidisciplinary process to identify and resolve issues resulting from obsolescence, loss of manufacturing sources, or material shortages.
The SD-22 identifies activities associated with the six steps of DMSMS operations: Prepare, Identify, Assess, Analyze, Implement, and Strategize. Our panel will focus on these steps and provide insights into leveraging the SD-22 for DMSMS practitioners—this includes contracting for DMSMS management, developing DMSMS workforce competencies, programming and budgeting for DMSMS management operations, and many more.
This panel of DMSMS experts has been assembled from across DoD and Industry to highlight the role of the SD-22 in a robust DMSMS management program.
