Description

Many articles have investigated operator performance, predicting standard cycle time by learning curve approach (e.g., Bevis, Finnlear, & Towill, 1970; De Jong, 1957). Surprisingly, no previous research has been found where time is predicted by learning curve approach in the apparel assembling process. In this comparative study, both learning curve and time study approach were used in the apparel assembling process to determine which method better predicts the total assembling time.

Predicting Total Assembling Time for Different Apparel Products Utilizing Learning Curve and Time Study Approaches: A Comparative Case Study
