Unformatted text preview: c. Learning curve model i. Y x = K(x) n 1. Time= 1 st unit (which unit) Rate of decay (always a negative number) 2. Variables a. Y x = the time required to product the xth unit b. K= the time estimated to product the 1 st unit c. X = the ordinal number of the unit produced d. N = the exponent that identifies the rate of improvement d. Regression to estimate n and k i. Always the preferred method ii. As always with regression, need a reasonable amount of data iii. Linear regression – but learning curve is not linear : exponential decay iv. Solution 1. Must somehow linearnize...
