A detailed look at the Pitman Shift Pattern.
The Pitman Shift Pattern is a common pattern that provides 24-hour coverage. This pattern is made up of 4 teams (or crews) and 2 12-hour Shift Durations. This shift pattern occurs on a 2-week cycle, in which teams work for a total of 7 days, and have a total of 7 days off. Half of the teams work 2 day shifts, have 2 days off, work 3 day shifts, have 2 days off, work 2 day shifts, and end with 3 days off. The other teams work the same pattern on the night shift.
