4 Star Electronics Sponsors the 2013 DMSMS Risk Mitigation Conference

Kissimmee, Florida, December 2, 2013 - 4 Star Electronics is proud to announce its "Gold Sponsorship" of the 2013 DMSMS Risk Mitigation Conference.

Diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages (DMSMS) endanger the life-cycle support and viability of electronic systems and equipment, making it a complex and critical issue for manufacturers and supply chain partners. DMSMS is defined by the Department of Defense as the "loss or impending loss of the last known manufacturer or supplier of raw material, production parts, or repair parts."

4 Star Electronics, a quality focused industry-leading supplier of obsolete and hard to find electronic components, is proud to sponsor the upcoming annual DMSMS Risk Mitigation Conference to address this issue. With a carefully managed global network of electronic component suppliers and their own 35,000 square foot ANSI/ESD-S20.20 certified facility, 4 Star offers one of the largest inventories available anywhere today.

The reason so many military and aerospace organizations partner with 4 Star Electronics as a supply chain solution is not only their access to millions of hard to find parts, but also the quality of these electronic components. With over a dozen certifications and memberships focused on quality assurance, 4 Star has always been known for their expertise in maintaining a secure, reliable supply chain and ensuring procurement of traceable or validated authentic electronic components. With such a strong focus on quality control, it's no surprise that 4 Star will have a prominent role on the exhibition floor as a sponsor of the upcoming DMSMS Conference.

"4 Star is looking forward to seeing many of our top customers and vendors at the show," said Scott McKee, 4 Star's Director of Operations. "The DMSMS show is a great way for us to get a pulse on the Mil/Aero community so we can plan the best possible solutions to our customer's obsolescence needs."

It is important for the DOD that every manufacturing organization addresses DMSMS and component obsolescence to develop attainable low-cost sustainment strategies.

About The DMSMS Conference

With various discussion panels and training sessions, the upcoming DMSMS Risk Mitigation Conference addresses a wide range of topics such as counterfeit parts avoidance and detection, manufacturing readiness, and the use of value engineering to improve DMSMS management.

End-of-life and obsolescence of electronic components challenge the maintenance and sustainability of highly technical electronic systems for organizations struggling against rapid technology advancement and diminishing lifecycles. The reduced lifecycle times have not only complicated sustainment, but have diminished to the point that new product designs face challenges of obsolescence within the manufacturing cycle, and in some cases before manufacturing even begins.
