Learning curve is an important metric for industrial engineers for predicting production throughput and capacity requirements. Engineers need to consider the fact that with experience workers can process more units per period, and they have to use this information while designing assembly lines.
In this video, you will learn how Plant Simulation can show the effects of learning curves in analyzing production throughput. This video shows how you can define a learning curve method and use it in your analysis. The best thing is that Plant Simulation provides you the freedom to define your own learning curve equation from your empirical data. You can specify different learning curve for different operations to get a realistic representation of your assembly processes.
