INDUSTRIAL SKILLS.
SEYMOUR, W. DOUGLAS
THIS BOOK, A SEQUEL TO THE AUTHOR'S "INDUSTRIAL TRAINING FOR MANUAL OPERATIONS," COMPRISES THREE PARTS. IN PART ONE, THE NATURE OF SKILLS IN INDUSTRY IS DESCRIBED, AND THEIR RELATION TO HUMAN PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY. IN PART TWO, AN OUTLINE OF RECENT RESEARCH AND A RESUME OF THE STATE OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE ACQUISITION OF SKILLS IS GIVEN. IN PART THREE, THERE IS A DISCUSSION OF THE TECHNIQUES OF IMPARTING INDUSTRIAL SKILLS AND A REVIEW OF CURRENT EXPERIENCE. THE THESIS OF THE WORK IS THAT SYSTEMATIC TRAINING CAN BE APPLIED TO ALL KINDS OF WORK BY (1) ANALYSIS OF THE SKILLS OF EXPERIENCED WORKERS AND (2) THE USE OF THIS ANALYSIS ACCORDING TO WHICH OF THE SIX CLASSES OF WORK IS INVOLVED. (THE CLASSES OF WORK INCLUDE HANDWORK, HANDWORK WITH TOOLS, SINGLE-PURPOSE MACHINE WORK, MULTI-PURPOSE MACHINE WORK, GROUP MACHINE WORK, AND NON-REPETITIVE WORK.) THESE ANALYTICAL AND SYSTEMATIC TECHNIQUES PROVIDE, FOR IMPARTING THE SKILL CONTENT OF INDUSTRIAL TASKS, A PROCEDURE PARALLEL TO THAT PROVIDED BY PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION FOR THE KNOWLEDGE CONTENT. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES TABLES, FIGURES, PHOTOS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, AND APPENDIXES ON RESEARCH IN SKILL ACQUISITION.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM SIR ISAAC PITMAN AND SONS, LTD., LONDON, ENGLAND, FOR 50 SHILLINGS. (AUTHOR/LY)
