The Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) recently issued a new and improved February 2015 version of their highly regarded SD-22 “Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages: A Guidebook of Best Practices for Implementing a Robust DMSMS Management Program.”

 

In view of the Product Support Manager’s   (PSM) responsibility established in Section 803(b)(5) of Public Law 113-66 (the FY14 National Defense Authorization Act) that “in addition to the responsibilities under Section 2337 of Title 10, United States Code, a product support manager for a major weapon system shall work to identify obsolete electronic parts that are included in the specifications for an acquisition program of the Department of Defense and approve suitable replacements for such electronic parts”, would highly recommend all DoD PSMs and Life Cycle Logisticians take note of this new guidebook, read through it, and bookmark it for future reference.

 

As a side note, encourage you to also take a look at a related blog post entitled “Proactively Tackling the Scourge of Diminishing Manufacturing Sources & Material Shortages (DMSMS)” earlier this year.
