Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) issues result from, the loss, or impending loss, of manufacturers or suppliers of items, raw materials, software or parts obsolescence. 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. A part is obsolete if it is out-of-date and superseded by something new. While traditionally thought of as applying to electronic items, it is important to be cognizant that a DMSMS/obsolescence issue can arise regarding any item within a system, including software and non-electronic components—materials and structural, mechanical, and electrical (MaSME) items.
