Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages Management Plan Guidance (July 2016)
Reference: DPAP Memo, (07/2016)

Summary:  With a global supply chain that is constantly changing to meet market demands and with the ever-lengthening lifecycle of our systems, Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) pose increasing risks to our system readiness and reliability. In order to manage this risk, the Department of the Navy (DON) requires a proactive, forward looking DMSMS management process to provide cost effective solutions for parts and material that may not be available for the life of the system.
