    Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) 2014

    Organized by Universal Technology Corporation
    December 1–4, 2014, Grand Hyatt San Antonio and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, TX

    The theme of this year's DMSMS conference is "DMSMS Management: Delivering Affordable Readiness." The Department's priorities and strategy, set in the 2014 QDR, calls for a smaller force with technological advantage while still protecting readiness. One crucial consideration to achieve this strategy is the relationship between readiness and modernization. As investments in modernization are deferred, the cost of readiness increases, sometimes resulting in a net loss. However, using proactive and highly integrated DMSMS practices, we can reverse this cycle. Better DMSMS management and investments can actually deliver increased readiness while freeing funds for modernization of critical systems, thus resulting in a net gain. This conference will present a spectrum of DMSMS practices to improve DoD affordability. This year, the DMC and DMSMS conferences will be held at the same time and at the same location allowing you to attend both events.
