  1. 4 shifts working 24/7 are usually on an 8 day week with 2 day shifts and 2 night shifts. Shifts 1 and 2 will work 12 hours a day for 4 days and then are off for 4 days while shifts 3 and 4 take over…repeat. I did this for a few years and it was kinda sweet.

  2. Overlapping shifts so that the work doesn’t stop at shift change.

    Also, if you’re expecting people to work 7 days a week, you have to reduce their hours a little. Otherwise they get run down and start making stupid mistakes.

  3. Does anyone really want to work in the early hours if they don’t have to? What about if you have three project sites in the US, Europe, and say Australia?

  4. Don’t understand the 4 shifts since there are only 3 x 8 hrs in a day unless the extra shift is to cover the week end.

  5. Im surprised elon isnt working on an extra wide steel roller so he can weld the hall all from on piece of steal…. or die cast it like a giant matchbox car
