An Analysis of the Billing and Bookkeeping Machine Operator Occupation.
Six, Joseph E., Jr.
The general purpose of the occupational analysis is to provide workable, basic information dealing with the many and varied duties performed in the billing and bookkeeping machine operating occupation. The analysis was written in general terms due to the diversity in bookkeeping machines on the market, increasing number and variation of the tasks performed by the machines, and the varied program goals of schools teaching bookkeeping machines operation. The document opens with a brief introduction followed by a job description. The bulk of the document is presented in table form. Eight duties are broken down into a number of tasks and for each task a two-page table is presented, showing on the first page: tools, equipment, materials, objects acted upon; performance knowledge (related also to decisions, cues and errors); safety--hazard; and on the second page: science; math--number systems; and communications (performance modes, examples, and skills and concepts). The duties include: preparation, operation, and maintenance of the machines and machine area; preparation and maintenance of documents, files, and records; and operating various related office machines. A list of mental and physical attitudes needed for maximum functioning is appended. (BP)
