In this work, we adopt simulation in order to explore organization learning in assembling operations as an emergent phenomenon. We focus on the emergence of organizational learning curves which is supposed to be the signal that leads to the spontaneous arise of routines or patterns of operations. In particular, we focus on pure routing problems which are sufficient for the generation of learning curves. We carry out our study using our own developed simulation framework - ACP - and we show how it has been straightforward to develop such kind of simulation model using the features available in the framework.
