Abstract

AbstractThe continues increase in population and market globalization necessitated offering additional services and mass production strategy deployment. Consequently, a dramatic increase in research studies have been directed towards mitigating the shift schedule harmful physical, psychological, and social life effects on the workers. In addition, studies are currently conducted to determine the optimal shift schedule and shift rota, which is capable to incorporate human factors and applicable to the environment adopted in. In Kingdom of Bahrain there are no studies that investigate the effects of shift schedule on the operators, neither provide clear guidelines to select the appropriate shift schedule based on the environment adopted in. Accordingly, the aim of this paper is to present the development of an effective shift schedule selection mechanism that considers the physical, psychological, and social life factors for Al-Dur Power and Water Plant in Kingdom of Bahrain. The research methodology adopted was based on survey and case study. The results of this research study concluded that the shift schedule selection procedure developed was capable to involve all the stakeholders associated in the shift schedule selection process. In addition, it based the assessment and decision on the work environment adopted in.
