DMSMS Management Best Practices and Lessons Learned SD-22 DoD DMSMS Guidebook 5.18.23
From Emmett Simmons
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.
