Food Management, Production, and Service. Occupational Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Food Management, Production, and Service Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) is one of a series of competency lists, verified by expert workers, that have evolved from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) job analysis process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from throughout Ohio. This OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (or competencies) needed to enter food management, production, and service occupations. The OCAP clusters the competencies into broader units and details the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (competency builders) needed to perform each competency. The competencies are clustered into the following 12 units: orientation to food service industry; sanitation and safety; guest relations and service; side work; equipment; nutrition and menu development; pantry management; main entrees; stocks, soups, sauces, and gravies; bakery products and desserts; receiving and storing; and management operations. This guide also includes the following components: (1) an OCAP listing the employability competencies; (2) work keys assessments that measure students' applied academic skills; (3) job profiling, a key to the level of applied skills required for the food management, production, and service occupations; (4) a total list of academic competencies in communications, mathematics, and science; and (5) a list of academic competencies from the total list that were identified by expert workers as most crucial to the entry-level success of employees in food management, production, and service.
