Repeat Cycle 7 days

Pluses
  • Requires only 3 teams to cover 24/7 operations

  • One team must work continuous night shifts
  • Requires an average of 16 overtime hours per employee per week
Common Usage 24/7 operations with limited personnel requiring 8-hr shifts.
Notes For 24/7 operations, schedule plans requiring 4 or more teams are preferable. This plan provides no non-working day and may be unfair to employees who must work the night shifts. However, it may be acceptable for short periods of time when employees live and work in the same areas, especially where there is little difference in daylight between nights and days, e.g. in a submarine.
