In this article, the author discusses the implications of a 6+6-hour model for the production economy of the Finnish Company Essilor Oy. The theory of returns to scale has been used to analyse the results of the change from one 8-hour shift to the 6+6-hour-shift system. It is shown that the company Essilor attained a better production economy and increased profit by introducing a 6+6-hour-shift system in one of their departments. The operation time increased by 72%. The wages per month were unreduced and seven new persons were recruited.
