MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY, DESIGN AND PRODUCTION, SUGGESTED TECHNIQUES FOR DETERMINING COURSES OF STUDY IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
PETERSON, CLARENCE E.
THIS PUBLICATION IS THE THIRD IN A SERIES DESIGNED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO HELP STATES ORGANIZE AND OPERATE PROGRAMS UNDER TITLE VIII OF THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT OF 1958. THE OTHER PUBLICATIONS ARE "MECHANICAL DRAFTING AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGY" (VT 001 823) AND "ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY" (VT 002 421). EACH PUBLICATION INDICATES HOW JOB ANALYSIS AND JOB RELATIONSHIP TECHNIQUES CAN BE USED TO FACILITATE THE PLANNING OF TRAINING PROGRAMS. MECHANICAL DESIGN TECHNOLOGY IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT, TESTING, EVALUATION, AND DESIGN OF MACHINERY, EQUIPMENT, INSTRUMENTS, AND OTHER MECHANICAL SERVICES PRIOR TO PRODUCTION. PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY IS CONCERNED WITH INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING PROBLEMS INVOLVING THE EFFICIENT USE OF MANPOWER, MATERIALS, AND MACHINES IN MASS PRODUCTION PROCESSES. BEFORE TECHNICAL CURRICULUMS CAN BE ESTABLISHED, IT IS NECESSARY TO IDENTIFY THE SPECIFIC OCCUPATIONS FOR WHICH TRAINING IS NEEDED AND TO ANALYZE AND TO PREPARE BRIEF JOB DESCRIPTIONS OF EACH. THE 20 JOB DESCRIPTIONS INCLUDED IN THIS BOOKLET WERE TAKEN FROM VOLUME I OF THE "DICTIONARY OF OCCUPATIONAL TITLES." AFTER SUBJECT MATTER AREAS ARE IDENTIFIED THROUGH THE JOB ANALYSIS, THE SUBJECTS MUST BE ARRANGED IN A LOGICAL ORDER AND INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS MUST BE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE THE DESIRED LEARNING. THE PURPOSE OF THE SUGGESTED TECHNICAL TRAINING PROGRAMS IS TO PREPARE WORKERS FOR SINGLE OCCUPATIONS WITH CONTENT DERIVED FROM THE ANALYSIS OF THE SPECIFIC JOBS. A TRAINING REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS FORM AND AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TO PROVIDE A SOURCE FOR MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR 25 CENTS FROM SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (HC)
