Dear Rahul,
Please check the attached XL file.
Normally a reliever is supposed to cover any of the three shifts.
Your requirement says he would do only morning and afternoon shifts.
I am not aware of any tool.
Please extrapolate the XL file further.
Once you develop this for few months you can get a fair idea and at some stage
it will become repetitive and easy.

Dear Mr. Raghunathan, 7 continuous night shift won’t work, kindly suggest the roster which will have individual shifts of maximum three days.It would be favorable for employees too.
Dear Mr Rahul,
I wish you had tried once before making a request.
In the schedule give by me earlier, the maximum working days between two OFF days was only SIX
and not seven as you have mentioned.
Any way I have now made a FOUR WEEK schedule keeping all your requirements in mind.
Please extend this for three or four months using the columns so that you will
get practice before putting it in to use.

You cannot make the roster with three persons; it requires three and half persons.
Dear Mr Venu
You are right Mr Venu.
Theoretically three and half persons are required for one spot operating 24 X 7 on all days.
However to overcome this unrealistic 'three and half' person, a
fourth person is taken as a reliever. He does general shift for three days and covers relieving shifts in the next three days. Seventh day becomes his weekly off day.
In operating plants we consider 7 persons for two spots so that the seventh person becomes a reliever in two spots. If the spot is only one, obviously fourth person has to be there, doing three days shift duty and three days general shift duty.
Rahul's case is however different. He has a reliever who would come only in the morning and afternoon shifts. Again he does not want any one to do more than three nights at a stretch. Hence it requires a long planning spread over many days.
Please see Sr No 7 point in the first post of Rahul.
You can also go through the Xl file and give your suggestions to Rahul.
