Operational Research

You can always be more efficient

Operational Research is all about using analysis to improve decision making. Dr Angela Moore uses mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, optimisation, sequencing and scheduling techniques to create simple heuristics you can employ to run your operation more efficiently.

Around the World in 80 days!

At the time when Phileas Fogg went around the world, a man of independent means was not that uncommon. However today most of us are not so lucky! Taking 80 days off work is harder than travelling around the world in the Victorian era.

So if you would like to recreate Fogg’s heroic journey, besides money (you can do it for less than £20,000), you need to ensure that you still have a job to come back too.

So you could take a sabbatical or some other unpaid leave option. Or you could have 80 days off and still get paid!

It’s easy, you just need a holidays included shift pattern and then swap a few shifts with your colleagues. On 12-hour shifts you get over 200 days off so putting 80 days together is a doddle.

Here is one I did earlier!

80 days

As you can see in this version you get slightly more than 80 days off, so you have time to pack and do you laundry before you go back to work. I’ve highlighted the long break in orange. And you can’t really say you would be over worked on this shift pattern either. You still get a few four and five day breaks during the rest of the year.

If you would like to know how to book your trip contact us for the shift pattern and your local travel agent! If you would like to know more about holidays included shift patterns, then our books are available from Amazon
