Leonardo DRS provides Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) and Obsolescence management to minimize program-supportability impact due to the discontinuation of critical items and raw materials. Items are identified and tracked by our DMSMS management team and data is shared with all program stakeholders.
Leonardo DRS participates with Integrated Product and Process Development working groups to share data and discuss impacts to the program. In support of your DMSMS management program, we work in conjunction with the Government team to implement a technology refresh program to mitigate obsolescence impacts.
In all cases we provide notification within 30 days if a process, component, or assembly required for delivery of a system is unavailable due to obsolescence or DMSMS issues. Our expertise in managing DMSMS and obsolescence provides the essential element that drives product updates critical to any long-term sustainment program.
