About Pre-Designed Schedule Plans


To help you evaluate these plans, the following characteristics are provided for each plan.

  • Plan ID: A code used to uniquely identify the plan.
  • Name: The name of the plan.
  • Applicability: The type of operations this plan is designed for.
  • Teams Required: The number of teams (crews) required by this plan. A team may include one or more employees.
  • Shifts: The different shifts used in this plan. For each shift, only the shift description and shift length are shown. The shift start or end time can be adjusted to fit your business operations so long as the shift length stays the same.
  • Repeat Cycle: The number of days required for each team to complete its assigned shift sequence in rotating shifts. At the end of each cycle, the team starts the same shift sequence over again.
  • Rotation: On rotating shifts, a team member rotates from one shift to another according to a specific arrangement. In a forward rotation, the employee rotates from a shift that starts earlier in the day to a shift that starts later in the day, e.g. Day to Afternoon to Night. In a backward rotation, the reverse is true. Studies indicate that forward rotation is better than backward rotation since our body adjusts much better to changes in work shifts from earlier to later. The rotation speed is the speed at which the shifts are rotated. In a "fast" rotation, an employee rotates from one shift to another once every few days or less. In a "slow" rotation, an employee works the same shift for many days or weeks before rotating to another shift.
  • Average Hours Per Week: This is the average number of hours worked by each employee per week based on the shift lengths and shift sequences for this plan.
  • Staffing Fluctuation: The fluctuation in staffing level as the plan progresses from shift to shift and day to day. A plan is "balanced from shift to shift" if each shift is staffed by the same number of employees. A plan is "balanced from day to day" if each day is staffed by the same number of employees. Note that by default, each team contains the same number of employees.
  • Pluses: Positive aspects of the plan.
  • Minuses: Negative aspects of the plan.
  • Common Usage: Typical users of the plan.
