Abstract : As a basis for approaching the development of a Navy job analysis system, the standard procedures in job analysis are analyzed and reviewed, together with recent developments in the field. Limitations upon the research are identified, and some of the underlying assumptions are indicated. Criteria for a Navy job analysis system are proposed. Industrial and governmental practices in job analysis are discussed, particularly the systems followed by the U. S. Marine Corps, the U. S. Air Force, and the U. S. Army, and their use for Navy purposes is appraised. Procedures followed by the U. S. Department of Labor are also examined. It is concluded that, while certain aspects of the Air Force and Marine Corps job analysis systems may pertain to the Navy, a job analysis system which is satisfactory for the Navy must be developed to accommodate the Navy's unique characteristics and requirements.
