Abstract : The Concept of cost reduction based on learning curves is presented. Basic equations to accomplish cost reduction calculations are developed and presented with sample problems typical of those encountered in long range production cost forecasting. The presentation of equations and examples permits calculations without the use of computers or voluminous general reference charts and cost reduction curves. (Author)
