## Calculating downtime for shifts when downtime crosses shifts

We have 4 crews(A,B,C,D), that work rotating 12 hr shifts and they are 6:00 to 18:00 and 18:00 to 6:00. We capture downtime in a table with a starttime and an endtime. We have a slicer that sets a start date of say 4/29 6:00 and end date of 5/6 6:00. We have a table with the shift schedule, where there are 2 rows for each day, like 04/29/18 6:00 and 4/29/18 18:00 with the shift letter.

Each shift's downtime is the time down in their shift, while the total downtime for that segment could span mutliple shifts and be outside the slicer limits. I'm looking for a way to get a breakdown of each shifts downtime and sum that downtime up for a total. I'm using Directquery now, but if its impossible I can switch to import. I wasn't sure how to start to set the relationships and what measures to create. I had something working between the slicers with IF statements but I had to switch to Import before it would work. However, this didn't address breaking it down by shifts. I'm more of a SQL person than a DAX person so it something needs to be prepared on the SQL side, I can do that.

I can capture screen shots of the data is thats helpful.

Any help would be appreciated!
