# Learning Curve Calculator

Instructions: You can use this Learning Curve Calculator to compute the amount of time required to produce the $$N^{th}$$ unit by providing the amount of time required for the first unit and the learning rate $$r)$$, using the form below: Time required to produce the first unit $$(T_1)$$ = Learning Rate per $$(r)$$ = Unit Number for which to compute production time $$(N)$$ =

More about the Learning Curve Calculator so that you can better understand the elements used in this calculator. In all productive processes, there is consistent improvement in worker performance, as the process is repeated multiple times. The improvement, though, goes changing, as it is sharper at the beginning, but the rate decreases with multiple repetitions. In general, the amount of time required for the $$N^{th}$$ unit i

$T_N = \displaystyle T_1 \left( N^b \right)$

where $$N$$ is the unit number for which we want to know the production time, $$T_1$$ is the amount of time required to produce the first unit, and $$b\$$ is the base 2 logarithm of the learning ratio, so $$b = \log_2 r$$.
