Along with a modern plant Von Ruden stands apart in modern management methods. Teams oriented to specific manufacturing or support functions control all aspects of their contributions. The teams determine their own work schedules and even hire their own members, reviewing applications, interviewing and making the final hiring decisions. There are no foremen or shop supervisors. Company advisors support the teams with information, expertise and a common focus.
While the company members are organized into teams the manufacturing efforts are organized into cells. Each cell acts as an autonomous unit controlling almost all facets in the manufacture of its parts or product. This cellular method allows special or unique parts and configurations to be completed in a fraction of the time required when the entire facility was involved in each special order.
