We recommend the following best practices. These best practices are based on many years of practical experience in the deployment and use of operator rounds in multiple settings:
The maximum size of an operator round should be approximately 150-200 tasks.
The maximum time to complete an operator round should be about 30-45 minutes per round.
For day-shift operations, you should not schedule more than 2 hours for operator round data collection. On nights and weekends, you can schedule longer rounds, but they should not be longer than 4 hours per shift.
If your operator round requirements don't fit within these best practices, we recommend you re-evaluate your task selection and frequency.
