Task Analysis Inventories. Series II.
Wesson, Carl E.
This second in a series of task analysis inventories contains checklists of work performed in twenty-two occupations. Each inventory is a comprehensive list of work activities, responsibilities, educational courses, machines, tools, equipment, and work aids used and the products produced or services rendered in a designated occupational area. The inventories can be used to set up work programs, write job descriptions, or be given to workers to check appropriate items in a self-inventory of their work. The information collected by use of the inventories may be helpful to job developers, counselors, and training and placement personnel. It also may be used in the development of curriculums for vocational or apprenticeship training. Occupations covered in this inventory series include aircraft and aerospace manufacturing; building and construction trades; chemical processing; economics and political science work; electrical equipment, apparatus, and devices manufacturing; electronic components, equipment, and apparatus manufacturing; plastics manufacturing; food processing; history, sociology, and anthropology work; instruments and apparatus manufacturing; knitting mill work; library work; logging; paper and paperboard converting; petroleum refining; sawmill and planning mill work; ship and boat building and repairing; textile mill work; veneer and plywood mill work; woodworking.
