Evaluation of the Job Inventory Approach in Analyzing USAF Officer Utilization Fields. Final Report, 19 June 1972-28 July 1974.
Mayo, Clyde C.; And Others
The purpose of the study was to evaluate and improve the job inventory method of job analysis as applied to officer positions. Seven utilization fields were analyzed and inventories were constructed for another three fields. The basic finding was that the inventory method can be used operationally in the analysis of officer jobs if job analysts use specific approaches to task statement construction and if more front-end research than is usually needed for airman job inventories is performed prior to the finalization of a job inventory. No magic formulas for the construction of task statements exist; however, after heavy front-end work, the job analyst will obtain enough information to resolve the issues of task specificity and breadth of coverage for each utilization field on an individual basis. The report contains 30 statistical tables. (Author)
