DMS specifications originate from Boeing’s Long Beach facility under D1-4426 Approved Process Lists. DMS2100 / DMS 2100 originated at the Long Beach facility, therefore it is widely used for Boeing’s aircraft manufacturing at multiple locations.
As a Tier 1 Aerospace company, Boeing holds its subcontractors to the same standards by ensuring they source Stainless Steel CRES per DMS 2100 from approved sources. This creates accountability and ensures the highest quality standards are achieved in the manufacturing process. An excerpt from Boeing’s quality website states the following:
Our commitment to steady, long-term improvement in our products and processes is the cornerstone of our business strategy. Maintaining customer satisfaction and enhancing shareholder value are mutual goals of both Boeing and its suppliers. To achieve these objectives, we must continuously work together to improve the overall efficiency and productivity of our design, manufacturing, administrative and support organizations.
