Potential Uses of Occupational Analysis Data By Air Force Management Engineering Teams.
McFarland, Barry P.
Both the occupational analysis program and the management engineering program are primarily concerned with task level descriptions of time spent to perform tasks required in the Air Force, the first being personnel specialty code oriented and the second being work center oriented. However two separate and independent techniques have been developed to measure time and identify tasks that are performed. The purpose of the study was to identify and evaluate areas in which Air Force Management Engineering Teams (MET) might benefit from occupational research data. For the study occupational research data was provided as a supplemental input to the development of MET engineered manpower standards for base level Data Automation. The analysis revealed that the techniques used by MET and occupational analysis yield essentially the same information. Also a number of areas were identified in which occupational research data and techniques could be beneficially employed by MET. (Author/SA)
