ch4a Student: ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. The learning curve states that the more experience you have in a particular activity; the less surprised you will be when something goes wrong. True False 2. When plotted on a graph, the learning curve can't be expressed as logarithm. True False 3. Economies of scale and the learning curve have opposite effects on capacity. True False 4. The point at which the scale economy curve and the learning curve intersect is called the capacity optimum. True False 5. A learning curve is a line displaying the relationship between unit production time and the cumulative number of units produced. True False 6. A learning curve is a line displaying the way unit production time decreases as time passes. True False 7. On a learning curve plot, the time per unit is usually displayed on the vertical axis. True False 8. A learning curve shows the decrease in time required for each successive unit completed. True False 9. A learning curve shows the increase in time required for each successive unit completed. True False 10. An assumption of learning curves is that the time required to complete a unit will decrease at a decreasing rate as the cumulative number of units completed increases. True False 11. An assumption of learning curves is that the time required to complete a unit will increase at an increasing rate as the cumulative number of units completed increases. True False

12. An assumption of learning curves is that the time required to complete a unit will decrease at an increasing rate as the cumulative number of units completed increases. True False 13. You time someone completing a single task the first time at 10 minutes and the second time they do the task it takes 9 minutes. You should use an 80 percent learning curve to estimate the length of time this worker will take to complete this task in the future. True False 14. You time someone completing a single task the first time at 100 minutes and the second time they do the task it takes 90 minutes. You should use a 90 percent learning curve to estimate the length of time this worker will take to complete this task in the future. True False 15. You time someone completing a single task the first time at 120 minutes and the second time they do the task it takes 108 minutes. You should use a 90 percent Learning Curve to estimate the length of time this worker will take to complete this task in the future. True False 16. You time someone completing a single task the first time at 100 minutes and the fourth time they do the task it takes 81 minutes. You should use an 81 percent learning curve to estimate the length of time this worker will take to complete this task in the future. True False 17. You time someone completing a single task the first time at 100 minutes and the fourth time they do the task it takes 81 minutes. You should use a 90 percent learning curve to estimate the length of time this worker will take to complete this task in the future.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
