Manufacturing and Quality Challenges Roundtable

Today’s Defense Manufacturing and Quality Challenges


As a first-ever DMC session event, this Government and Industry Roundtable is intended to be an open discussion of M&Q challenges in today’s DoD acquisition environment. In an informal panel discussion format, current M&Q management issues will be discussed from the senior M&Q practitioner’s vantage point. The objective of the Roundtable is to allow open interaction and sharing of knowledge among participants in specific areas of concern for manufacturing across DOD, with questions and comments from the audience as additional participants. The purpose is to raise awareness of key issues for consideration by DMC attendees as lessons learned and for future action in each attendee’s role in the M&Q community. This year’s Roundtable session will be facilitated by Mr. Robert Gold, Director of the Engineering Enterprise within the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics. The Roundtable session is limited to individuals who fall under the United States/Canada Joint Certification Program, citizens of the United States, and persons admitted lawfully for permanent residence into the U.S. and Canada (i.e. DD-Form 2345)
