Shifts and time coordination

Rolling Stock Inventory
Apprentice Level 1

One of our biggest challenges is coordinating activities across time zones. To address this issue we have done two things:

1. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) -- the default time zone for this site is UTC, also known as Grenwich Mean Time or Zulu Time.

2. Shifts -- we have broken down the day into eight three-hour shifts. You will probably find that you are on the site most of the time in the same one or two shifts. You can orient yourself in time by the shifts you commonly work.

At the top of the page on this site you will always find the current UTC date, time, and shift.

On the Shift page, there is a section where you can set your local time zone, and a table to easily convert your local time to UTC.
