    At IBM there are several shifts. Most manufacturing are 12 hours shifts 7 to 7, day and night. The day shift uses a rotating 2 week schedule Mon-Tue, Fri-Sun for week 1 and week 2 is just Wed-Thu. The night shift has the same nights each week N1 is (Sun-Tue, N2 is Wed-Fri) and work every other Sat. Because pay week starts on Saturday, it works out to 36/48 hours each week. If you pay in 2 week periods, you might be able to get away with the average of 42 hours a week to limit overtime.

    We break it down into four groups of workers with rotating days off. So week one group one will have saturday and sunday off, week two monday and tuesday (four day week end), week three tuesday and wednesday, week four thursday and friday. Then we start over. Upside four day weekend. Downside tuesday are allways a little short handed.

    I'm assuming 8 hr days? If you go with 10 hr days, you can go with a 4 on 3 off rotation, plenty of shift overlap and an extra 52 days off a year.

    Don't know if the 7 day off schedule is the same as ours, but here's the one we use at my plant - all 12 hour shifts.
    It's a 28 day repeating schedule. I've worked lots of different rotating shifts, and while they all suck, this is the best one I have worked.
    I'm having trouble attaching the excel file, so here is a simple version, starts on a Monday- D= dayshift, N= night. blank is a day off.

    A D D D D D D D N N N N N N N

    Then it repeats. Hope this is understandable in this format.
