600x10 = 6000 minutes = 100 hours = 14.286 days

  • Work overtime (this should not be considered as a first resort)
  • Ask for more staff to help (again this may not be the best approach, particularly if you need to spend time training and mentoring the new staff)

  • After this initial week and the system is implemented there is no reason why the extra
