Work in general, and the learning curve in particular, are typically modelled with the power law, y(x) = a xb. This model provides little insight into the causes of the dynamics of the labor hours associated with work. A stochastic model with links to information is proposed. It is implemented as a Monte Carlo system, producing probability density functions, thus deriving labor cost uncertainty as intrinsic to the performance of work itself. The paper demonstrates a time domain application of the model in a factory setting with feedback interactions between work elements.
