Abstract : The research is designed to answer the questions of whether or not increased familiarity with a given system enables a person to perform a system related task in less time; and whether or not relative difficulty of a task is a determinant of the time required to perform the task. Test devices in the form of four jigsaw puzzles were constructed. Twenty male subjects assembled these four different puzzles seven times each and the times required to assemble were recorded. Conclusions are drawn.
