Day 6 of the 6 day shift cycle. Shift 8:00 pm till 4:00 am
Press - Mulder
Tiles made: Marseilles 40 Rouge 5300
Dry Tiles unstacked: Marseilles 40 Rouge, Faiteaux Rouge, Demi Marseilles Rouge

5300 is a good amount and the chef was very pleased. Laurent apparantly sang my praises to him.
Other folk weren't best pleased tho, bceause the chef had all three sections running at full speed, thru the halfway break. This meant that people had to take their breaks early or late to cover for other people. And then, because there were so many tiles being produced there weren't enough wagons left to take them thru the kiln and two sections had to stop turning. So people weren't happy about having their breaks buggered about with only to stop 2 hours later.

Although there are three production sections there is still only 1 kiln and 1 system to take tiles thru the kiln. When the system to stock unfired tiles gets full, there is a bottleneck at the kiln at production has to stop.
