|Schedule is important in any business operations. Many businesses apply the common 8 hours 9-6 or 8-5 schedule but some others cannot resort to the normal schedule because their businesses require longer hours or more flexible hours to cater to the business or the services the customers expect. For airline operators or transportation operators like commuter for example, 4/10 compressed work schedules are preferred. 4/10 refers to 4 days of working of 10 hours and having the rest of the week off. For employees in the medical industry, the hours are even more demanding and rotation of shifts must be done to the T to ensure smooth operations. Factory workers would require 24/7 operations that demand a fixed schedule that uses 3 teams and 8 hour shifts to cover 24/7 operations. One shift covers day shift (8-hr); one covers swing shift (8-hr) and another covers night shift (8-hr). The point is, scheduling can be very easy and it could get complex depending on the nature of one’s business operation.
