A Little More About DMSMS

Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) issue is the loss, or impending loss, of manufacturers or suppliers of items, raw materials, or software. The Department of Defense (DoD) loses a manufacturer or supplier when that manufacturer or supplier discontinues production and/or support of needed items, raw materials, or software or when the supply of raw material is no longer available. While traditionally thought of as applying to electronic items, it is important to be cognizant that a DMSMS issue can arise regarding any item within a system, including software and non-electronic components—materials and structural, mechanical, and electrical (MaSME) items.
