DavidC.Time estimating Repetitive Tasks

The learning curve captures the relationship between task performance and task repetition. In general. as output doubles the-unit production time will be reduced to some fixed percentage. the learning curve percentage or learning curve rate.  This equation uses the learning curve to calculate a time estimation for completion of some number of repetitive tasks.

`T_N`          = time requirement for the Nth unit of production

`T_"initial"`  = time req. for the initial unit of production

`N`           = number of completed unts (cumulative production)

 b             = learning curve exponent    where:

           b = `(log"(learning curve as decimal)")/log 2.0`
