## Derivation of production efficiency formulas[edit]

Let be the production efficiency measured as a fraction of the maximum, and be the time. The production efficiency gain gives us

Rearranging and integrating:

where is the time where the production efficiency is zero. This means it takes 500 days to reach cap from zero (under the continuous time approximation).

How much factory-days are lost during a hypothetical ramp up from zero to full?

Substituting :

for a full ramp-up. The bounds can be replaced for a partial ramp-up by replacing the bounds as appropriate. For a starting point based on the starting production efficiency we have a loss of

Do we know how far off the continuous time approximation is from actual behavior?

## Civilian Factories to Construction[edit]

I'm thinking about moving info on civilian factories to construction, so te two paages correspond to the interface tabs. Any thoughts/disagreements? *— Preceding unsigned comment added by* Careful Plum (talk) 09:56, 25 January 2017 (CET)

- That's the section about consumer goods. A good idea. – Lillebror (talk) 10:07, 25 January 2017 (CET)

Yes, that is a good idea. The Mil/Civ interaction is not clear at first, so clarification would be excellent. Maybe the titles should be more descriptive of Civilian Factories and Construction on one tab for the one page and then Military Factories and Production on the other.Sir Garnet (talk) 11:07, 25 January 2017 (CET) 11:05, 25 January 2017 (CET)
