Due to the fact that most business considered only product delivery to customer in their supply chain, follow-on logistics support often run short. It often occurs that the supply chain needs to be reconstructed or repaired when products are no longer manufactured. Military components or systems, in particular, will encounter the problem of Diminishing Manufacturing Source and Material Shortage (DMSMS) so that it needs supply chain management repair actions during its deployment phase. Due to DMSMS problems, the availability of parts is affected and the operation and support cost of electronic systems are increased. This study uses the cross-related attribute of concurrent engineering to collect and analyze maintenance data system of the customer’s operational data. The concurrent engineering (CE) technique is integrated with DMSMS problems and thus results in increased efficiency of the production and the improvement of product quality. This paper discusses investigation architecture of DMSMS problem and an impact analysis of a fighter electronics system for the span of its product life cycle. It is hoped that this technique can provide a reference for management and decision making of managers when new products enter the market that they not only meet customer requirement, but also enhance company competitiveness.
