The Defense Standardization Program Office will be hosting a Defense Standardization Program (DSP) Workshop at LMI in Tysons Corner, Virginia from July 9-12, 2018. The Workshop is open to federal employees and immediate support contractors, but space is limited. Attendees will benefit from the opportunity to interact with Standardization Executives, participate in standardization training and tutorials, and collaborate in working groups to develop new approaches to outstanding issues.

This will be an excellent opportunity for acquisition, engineering, and logistics personnel to share challenges and capabilities; and for introducing personnel to the DSP tools, products, and procedures. Training and panel topics will include overviews of DSP policy and processes; tutorials on ASSIST and other tools; development of non-government standards; and how standards and standardization practices are being influenced by advancements in technologies and techniques, such as additive manufacturing, cyber, and digital engineering.
