## Learning Factor Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
k = (log10(a1)-log10(an))/log10(n)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
log10 - Common logarithm function (base 10), log10(Number)
Variables Used
Time for task 1 - Time for task 1 is the time taken to complete the first task in the production operation cycle. (Measured in Second)
Time for n tasks - Time for n tasks is the sum of total tasks undertaken in a particular production operation. (Measured in Second)
Number of tasks- Number of tasks is the total number of tasks to be done in a shift by all the workers in one job floor.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Time for task 1: 3600 Second --> 3600 Second No Conversion Required
Time for n tasks: 1000 Second --> 1000 Second No Conversion Required
Number of tasks: 10 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
k = (log10(a1)-log10(an))/log10(n) --> (log10(3600)-log10(1000))/log10(10)
Evaluating ... ...
k = 0.556302500767287
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.556302500767287 --> No Conversion Required
0.556302500767287 <-- Learning Factor

### Learning Factor Formula

k = (log10(a1)-log10(an))/log10(n)

## What Is a Learning Curve?

A learning curve is a concept that graphically depicts the relationship between the cost and output over a defined period of time, normally to represent the repetitive task of an employee or worker.

## How to Calculate Learning Factor?

Learning Factor calculator uses Learning Factor = (log10(Time for task 1)-log10(Time for n tasks))/log10(Number of tasks) to calculate the Learning Factor, Learning factor is associated with how mature the technology is and is inversely proportional to the number of tasks in the operation belt. Learning Factor is denoted by k symbol.

How to calculate Learning Factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Learning Factor, enter Time for task 1 (a1), Time for n tasks (an) & Number of tasks (n) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Learning Factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.556303 = (log10(3600)-log10(1000))/log10(10).

### FAQ

What is Learning Factor?
Learning factor is associated with how mature the technology is and is inversely proportional to the number of tasks in the operation belt and is represented as k = (log10(a1)-log10(an))/log10(n) or Learning Factor = (log10(Time for task 1)-log10(Time for n tasks))/log10(Number of tasks). Time for task 1 is the time taken to complete the first task in the production operation cycle, Time for n tasks is the sum of total tasks undertaken in a particular production operation & Number of tasks is the total number of tasks to be done in a shift by all the workers in one job floor.
How to calculate Learning Factor?
