Materialytics gave a poster presentation at the 2013 meeting of the U.S. Department of Defense group that addresses Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) in the first week of December. The group has been primarily concerned with obsolescence over the years, dealing with the problem of maintaining the supply of compatible replacement parts for long-lived equipment when its original manufacturers may have stopped producing those parts. In recent years, the problem of distinguishing counterfeit from genuine parts and materials has become increasingly important.

 

Materialytics' capabilities in this area attracted substantial interest. The entire 4’ x 4’ poster can be seen here in PDF format.
