This is a fixed (no rotation) plan that uses 21 teams and three 8-hr shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. Each employee is scheduled to work 5 days, 40 hours per week, and take 2 days off. On any given day, 15 teams will be scheduled to work and 6 teams will be off. Each shift will be staffed by 5 teams so the minimum number of employees per shift is five.
