Abstract:

Stabilization of shift times and rotation of jobs within a shift has enabled a 2-man system of continuous manning to outperform a 3-man arrangement which lacked these features. In vigilance-type tasks calling for sustained attention it is probably the job rotation which is important in more intense cognitive tasks such as complex decision-taking it may be the stabilization of daily shift times which confers the advantage, with job rotation doing more harm than good.
