Work Analysis Specialist Project. Final Report. Project Number 325-81-111-2.
Gordon, Donald M.
This project was conducted in New Castle (Henry County), Indiana to train and use the services of a work analysis specialist who would work with manufacturing companies to improve company profits through the provision of training programs based on a specific needs assessment. The determination of specific needs was accomplished through the application of a performance-based methodology known as Performance-Based Industrial Training/Training for Profit. In this method, a review was conducted of such factors as worker productivity, rework levels, tool breakage, quality control standards, and employee skill and training. As a result of the training and performance of the work analysis specialist, the following were outcomes for vocational education in Henry County: (1) work analysis services were provided to four Henry County companies and eight out-of-county companies, aiding the economic development of Indiana; (2) the vocational schools' performance-based curriculum was enhanced through sharing information developed by the project; (3) the value of having a work analysis specialist was demonstrated to the local community and to the state; and (4) good public relations were established. (A major portion of the document consists of task lists and task analysis guides developed for several corporations.) (KC)
