Functional Job Analysis: An Annotated Bibliography. Methods for Manpower Analysis No. 10.
Fine, Sidney A.; And Others
The bibliography provides a chronological survey of the development, growth, and application of the concept of Functional Job Analysis (FJA) which provides for the formulation of qualifications of workers and the requirements of jobs in the same terms so that the one can be equated with measures of the other. An introductory section discusses FJA, pointing out that it conceptualizes experience in terms of human functioning and growth, uses the language of experience to bring into focus the definition of work, defines the unit of work in a way that results in a stable element of design, and links together in a single interacting system worker, work, and work organization. Entries are listed for the years 1951, 1953, 1955-65, and 1967-75 with items arranged alphabetically by author within each year grouping. The early papers are mostly concerned with the theoretical formulations and the research that implemented the development of the occupational classification system used by the U.S. Employment Service for the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. These are followed by the applications of FJA to the study of the impact of automation on job structure. More recent papers describe the application of FJA to various practical manpower needs.
