Abstract

This paper will present a review of current SDT literature. First, characteristics of SDTs as well as their benefits, costs, and barriers will be examined. The importance of planning for appropriate autonomy levels will follow. Cost-benefit analysis as a planning instrument will be presented. A case study of a U.S. assembly plant having performed a cost-benefit analysis prior to instituting an SDT organizational structure--John Deere Commercial Products, Inc.--will be provided. Finally, a discussion of how the case study findings can be applied to other organizations will conclude.
