Similar to the 21 Team Fixed 8 5D Plan, this plan is a fixed (no rotation) plan that uses 21 teams and three 8-hr shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. It maximizes the number of consecutive days off while still averaging 40 hours per week. Over a 7 week cycle, each employee has two 3 consecutive days off and is required to work 6 consecutive days on 5 of the 7 weeks. 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.
