Dumur Industries Dominates Defense Manufacturing
Founded in 1987, Dumur Industries began operations as a sheet metal firm specializing in the production of commercial ventilation and stainless fabrication for the food service industry. In 1997, the company expanded into the defense, oil and gas, power utility, and communications sectors, and has never looked back. Today, the firm makes about 95% of its products for military defense industries around the world. The company’s military products consist mainly of machined, fabricated and welded assemblies large and small, primarily in mild steel, ballistic, aluminum and stainless steels for component parts for ground vehicles.
At any given time, Dumur Industries has up to 10,000 open work orders on the shop floor. The run time for different jobs can range from a few hours to several months. Fortunately, Global Shop Solutions’ Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) module handles everything the company needs with ease.
“We used to manually schedule the entire shop floor, which was a very time-consuming task, said Kendra Danbrook, Dumur’s Operations Manager. “Now, we just input all the data and let Global Shop Solutions do it for us. Global Shop Solutions gives us the same visibility of data on the scheduling side as it does on the costing side, so that we can see exactly when every job will start and end. We can see which jobs are on schedule and which might be running behind. We always find what we’re looking in a very short time.”
