Operations Strategy

I will be using a real time clock cycling through 24 actual hours over eight operating sessions.

The Timetable is being developed on a minute by minute basis in sets of 180 minutes which allows for 3 hour sessions.

Links to sessions

Session 1     Session 2     Session 3     Session 4    Session 5    Session 6    Session 7    Session 8

There were a number of Givens that needed developing before the timetable.
