A Study of the Rating Structure Requirements for the Aviation 3M Data Analyst.
Heinzel, Joseph R.; May, R. V., Jr.
The purpose of this research was to determine the optimum means of identifying personnel qualified to perform Aviation 3M Data Analysis. Resolution of this objective involved the identification of numerous problem areas contributing to the instability of the Data Analysis work force and the scarcity of personnel in that work force. The approach involved technical conferences and discussions with Maintenance Officers and Aviation 3M Data Analysis Officers as well as a number of occupational analysis interviews with enlisted personnel assigned to Aviation 3M Data Analysis billets at 33 east and west coast commands, staffs, and offices. Based upon these preliminary visits, two questionnaires were developed. The first was a Command Questionnaire, designed to elicit information regarding problems experienced by the command. The individual Questionnaire was administered only to qualified Aviation 3M Data Analysts and was designed to obtain information concerning the type of work performed, school background, and similar information. Conclusions reached indicate that the Aviation 3M Data Analysis function is closely allied to the Aviation Maintenance Administrationman (AZ) rating and that input into the Aviation 3M Data Analysis field should be from the AZ rating.
