Default Are two brew stands better than one?

If you had two single tier brew stands with pumps, could you brew more or faster using the stands together? For example, could one HLT service all brewing?

Two brew stands will suffice if three brew stands are not possible. Four brew stands would be preferred with five brew stands being ideal.

Kettle-MLT-HLT-MLT-Kettle?

Something like this with the HLT serving 2 brews simultaneously? I think that would work to maximize brewing time...busy day but not as long as a back to back session.

i would be worried with doing so much at once.. my typically brewday is 3 batches back to back (to back).. i have my HLT filled up mostly with water that i keep on/off at 160 degrees or so that i can use for strike/sparge.. once i am pumping into the BK then i get my next ready in the mash.. usually i time it correctly that i don't have to do too much at once, but i would hate for one to be ready to pump into the BB at the same time that another is ready to be ready to go to the BK.. my brewday is like 80% sitting around, and 20% running around like crazy
