10. An assumption of learning curve theory is which of the following? Organizational learning is not included in learning theory. The time required to do a task will vary randomly each time the task is repeated.


Unit time will decrease at an increasing rate. Learning will not be transferred from one worker to the next. The reduction in unit time will follow a predictable pattern.

11. A company's production process has an 80 percent learning curve rate. The process has produced 1,000 units to date. A process refinement is estimated to allow a future learning curve rate for the identical product of 75 percent. However, the initial unit made using the new process will take the same amount of time as the initial unit produced using the old process.

Which of the following is the total cost (TC) of the inventory given an annual demand of 10,000, setup cost of $32, a holding cost per unit per year of $4, an EOQ of 400 units, and a cost per unit of inventory of $150? None of these $1,501,600 $1,498,200 $499,313 $500,687

A.

$1,501,600

Q = 400. Average Inventory = Q/2 = 200. Holding cost/year = $4. Thus, annual holding cost = $800. Annual set-up cost = 10,000/400 = 25 x $32 = 800. Demand x cost per unit = 10,000 x $150 = 1,500,000. Hence, TC = $1,500,000 + 800 + 800 = $1,501,600.
