The Identification and Comparison of the Tasks for the Occupational Role of Industrial Production Technologist.
Nee, John G.
This paper describes a project designed to: (1) develop a model for determining occupational activity components to be used in any vocational-technical program, (2) produce a list of occupational activity components (tasks) for the occupational roles identified, (3) determine scores, ranks and percentages for each component from each occupational group per selected industry, (4) determine the percentage of time devoted to each component, (5) statistically determine the degree of likeness between occupational groups, and (6) prepare a report of the findings for use in curriculum development for a 2-year Industrial Projection Technology program at the community college level. The thesis advanced during the project was that there is a common core of skills among successful industrial production technologists and that this core should serve as the basis for any proposed program of studies for Industrial Production Technology. The instrument used in accumulating information for the project included a list of 100 components to denote the job requirements for a given industrial job description administered to different employee groups participating in the project. Results in graphs and tables are presented with implications for curriculum development. (MF)
