The focus is on the production and sustainment of affordable defense systems. Over the years, DMC has become the principal national forum for discussion of defense manufacturing issues, policies, programs and capabilities, as well as counterpart industry initiatives and concerns.  The DMC Conference will be conducted simultaneously with the Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Conference.
