“Our fire department operates 24/7 and need a rotating shift pattern between our Day and Night 12-hour shifts. We have 8 employees to schedule and they should alternate between consecutive Day shifts and Night shifts.”
One of the many shift schedules that meet your requirements is below. This schedule plan will require that we set up a rotation of 4 days on and then 4 days off. The employees will alternate between Day and Night shifts over a 16 day period to complete the pattern.
To accomplish this shift schedule we will be building a rotation of 4 teams, assigning 2 employees to each team.
