2 resources with different calendars issues

2 resources with different calendars issues

2 resources with different calendars issues

I want to schedule a double shift where equipment and people are the resources.  The equipment resources have a calendar equal to each of the shift calendars put together.  

morning = 6-10, 11-3
evening = 3-7, 8-midnight
equipment = 6-10, 11-7, 8-midnight

It doesn't consider the tasks together since I need a piece of equipment and a person.  If the person starts at 3pm but the equipment is available at 6am, it will schedule the equipment from 6am even thought the task is 1 hour long, and won't be completed until 4pm when the person comes to work.  It seems that the equipment is not available from 3-4 as well, but it makes it hard to see what is going on.

Any new methods would be appreciated.
