##### Cumulative Average-Time Learning Curve Pohlman Company makes aircraft engines. Pohlman has noticed that, in general, each new engine design is subject to an 80 percent learning rate. Assume that the ? rst unit produced takes500 hours, and direct labor is paid an average of \$30 per hour. Required: 1. Set up a table with columns showing: the cumulative number of units, cumulative average time per unit in hours, and cumulative total time in hours. Show results by row for total production of: one engine, two engines, four engines, eight engines, sixteen engines, and thirty-two engines. (Round hour answers to two signi?cant digits.)2. What is the total labor cost if Pohlman manufactures the following number of engines: one, four, or sixteen? What is the average cost per engine for the following number of engines: one, four, or sixteen? (Round your answers to the nearest dollar.)3. What if Pohlman is preparing a bid to build 16 engines? Calculate budgeted labor cost for an engine design which Pohlman has built before (assume that 16 of these engines had been made previously and the ? rst unit took 500 hours). Calculate budgeted labor cost for a new engine design that Pohlman ’ s workers have never made before (assume the ?rst unit will take 500 hours).
