Show transcribed image text The owner of a large manufacturing firm just received a production schedule for an order for 30 large marine engines. Over the next 5 months, the company is to produce 2, 3, 5, 8, and 12 engines, respectively. The first unit took 30,000 direct labor hours, and experience on past projects indicates that a 90 percent learning curve is appropriate; therefore, the second unit will require only 27,000 hours. Each employee works an average of 150 hours per month. Estimate the total number of full-time employees needed each month for the next 5 months.
