Parts Management is the practice of considering the application, standardization, technology (new and aging), system reliability, maintainability, supportability and cost in designing or selecting parts and addressing availability, logistics support, DMSMS, and legacy issues in supporting them throughout the life of systems.
Does that mean DMSMS management practices have not changed for more than 40 years?
Until recently, sustainment and counterfeit avoidance was left to DMSMS teams and best practice logistics or engineering tactics.
Under total life cycle systems management, the PM must balance traditional acquisition responsibilities for cost, schedule, and performance with life cycle support and sustainment (including DMSMS planning and management).
The LPIT has made several contributions to integrate international partners into the DMSMS process.
Based on an open systems architecture, the SBC4510 module significantly reduces risk associated with diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages (DMSMS).

Easier said than done; short of major technological breakthroughs, such outcomes are generally achieved through rigorous application of systems engineering processes, designing with supportability in mind, long-term sustainment planning, aggressive root cause analysis and failure resolution, proactive obsolescence and Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) mitigation, planned technology upgrades, and perhaps most important of all, a constant focus on system Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM).

But while AM can help deal with Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) problems, many experts interviewed for a recent report on research and development (R&D) advances impacting DMSMS warned that "AM is highly overrated." It is limited in what it can offer and poses some risks for obsolescence management.
