The Naval Enlisted Professional Development Information System (NEPDIS): Front End Analysis (FEA) Process. Technical Report 159.
Aagard, James A.; Ansbro, Thomas M.
The Naval Enlisted Professional Development Information System (NEPDIS) was designed to function as a fully computerized information assembly and analysis system to support labor force, personnel, and training management. The NEPDIS comprises separate training development, instructional, training record and evaluation, career development, and audit subsystems. This report focuses on the front-end analysis process which produces the job task inventory file. Input for the NEPDIS front-end analysis process comes from documented occupational data sources that are entered into the computer by Navy subject matter experts. Computer programs analyze the job task data and produce job task inventory listings that contain all job tasks for a given Navy rating and pay grade. The system can also produce such data as job task inventory terminal learning objectives, task-specific billet descriptions, rating-specific skills, and rating-specific knowledges. The NEPDIS front-end analysis process has had a trial application with four avionics ratings. (This report includes numerous sample NEPDIS and job task inventory outputs.) (MN)
