This five-volume report details an effort undertaken by Ingersoll-Rand (IR) to restore a professional tool plant in Athens, Pennsylvania, as a viable asset to the IR corporation. Volume 1, the final report, presents a historical perspective of the Athens plant, discusses the major skill and knowledge issues facing the plant, and provides the strategic plan developed to address the issues. In addition, it describes the methodology used in the strategic needs assessment, provides the findings gathered from the self-assessment, and makes suggestions for post-assessment training and education programs. Volumes 2 and 3 contain the compilation of the machine and job classification task and knowledge inventories. Volume 2 matches tasks with jobs and jobs with departments; classifies machines by departments; associates tasks with each machine; and identifies procedural, technical, general, and systems knowledge associated with each machine. Volume 3 identifies general, systems, technical, and procedural knowledge associated with each task. Volume 4 provides sample database sorts from the database developed during the project. The sorts include jobs in various departments; tasks that jobs require; tasks that require specified general, systems, technical, and procedural knowledge; and machines that require specified general, systems, and procedural knowledge. Volume 5 contains the compilation of the self-assessment results and the instruments. (YLB)
