The strength of a knowledge component is a continuous metric how well it has been learned. As a knowledge component strengthens, it will be become faster to retrieve and yield increased fluency, more likely to yield long-term retention, require less cognitive demand and thus yield more automaticity leave more cognitive headroom for learning other, often more complex, knowledge components.
