Are you satisfied with the results of your Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material 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.
Overview of DoDM published in Oct 2022 which provides mandatory procedures for implementing DoD Instruction 4245.15 on DMSMS Management.
