answer is total time of wakefulness from the start of duty etc. etc. which leads to, irrespective of rest or sleep time, pure and simple, an inidividual who is so bored he or she just can't keep their single pilot mind on the job.  At 16 hours of wakefulness it is said a human may be at the equivalent of legally drunk they are so tired - I know, bit of a stretch but everything needs to be considered.


12 hours is enough for duty time when the airline/operator cannot even pay attention to human rhythms - the airlines allegedly do - how I haven't a clue.


One thing that cracks me up is aviation crew change times pretty much coincide with those times hospital bound medical crews change, including doctors, which means flights late in the pilot duty time rig conincide when the referring doctor waits until close to the end of his or her shift to 'get rid' of a patient to a higher caliber facility in order to garner as much income on the patient for the referring hospital - don't think so, think again.  


Aviation crew change times should not coincide with hospital bound medical persons' crew changes - I know, 8 hour shift, 12 hour shifts, 16 or 24 or 36 - but, you get the idea.
