The Next Generation of DMSMS: Integration and Innovation

DMSMS risk mitigation is entering what may be described as the perfect storm: modernization schedules are lengthening, funding available to invest in support of current systems is declining, but operational tempo is still critical for ongoing global operations. Further, the DoD is facing a deepening contraction in the defense industrial base while counterfeit problems are present throughout the supply tiers. What is clear by examining this situation is that traditional, disconnected approaches to solving DMSMS issues cannot continue without breaking program budgets.

As Sir Winston Churchill once said, "Gentlemen, We Have Run Out Of Money; Now We Have to Think." Modern response to DMSMS, which was entirely reactive in 1999, has delivered gains in affordability and readiness through proactive mitigation and a robust DMSMS identification and mitigation process. The next generation of DMSMS solutions will continue to push awareness and mitigation early in the design and development cycle, using improved forecasting analytics, accessing the digital thread in the design cycle, searching for integrated solutions shared across all services, and providing visibility into potential DMSMS threats using a variety of "readiness levels" along the life cycle. Awareness of counterfeiting threats has already started to build techniques to comprehensively track inventories and actively provide trusted components. This conference will focus on each of these innovative parts of the Next Generation of DMSMS Solutions.
