Performance in doing a task in the learning stage depends on the previous practice on other tasks –learning curve is path dependent. A mathematical program aimed to assign a set of tasks to a set of workers considering path dependent learning curves is presented. Due dates for task and final knowledge objectives are possible, some tasks can be subcontracted and temporary workers can be hired. The model allows obtaining the cost of due dates and final knowledge.
