Abstract : This project was directed toward improving pro cedures for constructing and administering Air Force job inventories, using methods described in the current Occupational Analysis Manual. In constructing inventories for 20 airman career ladders, source materials for duty and task statements were evaluated. Review procedures were compared with respect to yield of informa tion from technical advisors (specialty experts), both from field review and from direct inter view. Results of administration of 10 inven tories to large samples of incumbents showed that efficient use of source materials and tech nical advisors yielded practically complete in ventories, since incumbents produced only a negligible number of task write-ins. Preliminary analyses of the inventory survey of one career ladder (Medical Laboratory) provided job descriptions for each of the 3 specialties. (Author)
