Abstract : The Air Force has recently revised the Occupational Analysis Manual which prescribes procedures for job analysis and evaluation. The revised method of job analysis, including the research and development which has led to its present form, is described in this paper. The method centers around the use of the task inventory, while at the same time it includes many of the more desirable features of traditional methods. The uses of job analysis data, statistical treatment, and special problems for future research are discussed. Evidence shows that the method will produce reliable information and will permit economical sampling of many job incumbents. The method also facilitates quantitative analysis and the organization of information into a form of utility to a maximum number of using agencies. (Author)
