MANUFACTURING PROCESS FUNCTIONS--I. AN ALTERNATIVE MODEL AND ITS COMPARISON WITH EXISTING FUNCTIONS (AND)II. SELECTION OF TRAINEES AND CONTROL OF THEIR PROGRESS.
GLOVER, J.H.
THE CHIEF OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY OF SPEED-SKILL ACQUISITION WAS TO FIND A MATHEMATICAL MODEL CAPABLE OF SIMPLE GRAPHIC INTERPRETATION FOR INDUSTRIAL TRAINING AND PRODUCTION SCHEDULING AT THE SHOP FLOOR LEVEL. STUDIES OF MIDDLE SKILL DEVELOPMENT IN MACHINE AND VEHICLE ASSEMBLY, AIRCRAFT PRODUCTION, SPOOLMAKING AND THE MACHINING OF PARTS CONFIRMED THE APPLICABILITY OF THE MODEL, NOT ONLY TO INDIVIDUAL LEARNING, BUT ALSO TO ALL KINDS OF LEARNING IN INDUSTRY. MOREOVER, THE CULOG (CUMULATIVE OUTPUT VERSUS TIME WITH LOGARITHMIC COORDINATES) METHOD OF PLOTTING LEARNING CURVES PRODUCES A STRAIGHT LINE, WHICH IS EASY TO CONSTRUCT, READILY UNDERSTOOD BY OPERATORS AND OTHER SHOP FLOOR STAFF, AND USEFUL IN MONITORING AND PREDICTING EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE. CULOG PLOTTING CAN BE USED TO DETECT AND CORRECT LEARNING PLATEAUS (SHOWN AS REDUCED SLOPE), SETTING GOALS FOR INDIVIDUAL TRAINING, MOTIVATING WORKERS TO PERFORM BETTER, AND AID IN TRAINEE SELECTION AND EVALUATION. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES CASE STUDIES PERFORMED OR CITED BY THE AUTHOR, NUMEROUS EQUATIONS, 20 FIGURES AND TABLES, 24 REFERENCES, AND SUMMARIES IN ENGLISH, FRENCH, AND GERMAN.) THIS INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PRODUCTION RESEARCH IS PUBLISHED BY THE INSTITUTION OF PRODUCTION ENGINEERS, 10 CHESTERFIELD STREET, LONDON, W.1, ENGLAND. (AUTHOR/LY)
