Learning Curves Learning Curve Analysis reflects the increased rate at which people perform tasks as they gain experience. Cumulative Average-Time Learning Model Incremental Unit- Time Learning Model Evaluates the average time per unit required to produce all of a given number of units produced to date, inside each lot => same time required ex lot 8= 10 min lot=500 units => each item in lot 8 take 10/500=0.02 minutes lot 8= 5 th , 6 th , 7 th , and 8 th ex: 80% learning curve Evaluates the time needed to produce the last unit in a quantity of units, we can only know the time of the 1 st , 2 nd , 4 th , 8 th …and not the total 8 lots just the 8 th Ex: 80% learning curve Lot Time of the # lot 1 1000 2 nd 800 4 th 640 8 th 512
