Clifton, NJ (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Joseph Federico, NJ MET, Inc. Vice President and Director of Operations, has announced NJ MET’s participation in the electronic testing exhibition and Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) conference at the Henry B. Gonzales convention center of The Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, Texas. DMSMS is the loss, or impending loss, of manufacturers or suppliers of items or raw material.
“This is our fifth conference and we are excited to attend the technical conferences and interact with industry leaders such as DOD scientists and engineers” said Joseph Federico from NJ MET, Inc.’s headquarters, located in NJ.
Obsolescence and DMSMS are often used interchangeably. DMSMS is the lack of sources or materials; obsolescence is lack of availability due to statutory, process and design changes. An obsolete product refers to the product in question not being needed anymore, and DMSMS is driven by financial needs pushing a product out of production but not necessarily out of use.
According to the DMSMS conference website, “The best practices in DMSMS will continue to push awareness and mitigation early in the design and development cycle, applying improved forecasting analytics and parts management across the services, utilizing the digital thread throughout the life cycle, and providing visibility into potential DMSMS threats along the life cycle. Anti-counterfeiting technologies and standards will comprehensively track inventories and actively provide trusted components. This conference will provide a balanced spectrum of DMSMS practices to improve DoD affordability.”
