Project Description

The Nuclear Reactor Laboratory (NRL) operates 24/7 for about 10 weeks per operating cycle. While the reactor is operating it must be staffed with two personnel at all times. There are limits on staff working hours per day, per two days and per week. The goal of this project is to develop a web based 4 week schedule board that is mobile friendly in Android and Apple environments. This shift schedule board will not allow any person to be scheduled to work more than the prescribed limits. Notifications are sent to appropriate personnel when shift schedules are changed by the supervisor. Changes made by personnel will require the supervisors’ approval before being implemented.
