Abstract : A job inventory covering four specialties and related shredouts in the Helicopter Mechanic Career Ladder, and consisting of 368 tasks grouped under 14 duty categories, was administered to 913 airmen in 13 major air commands. Incumbents of all skill levels completed a background information section and rated on a 7-point scale relative time spent on tasks. The airmen also indicated on a 7-point scale amount of work experience on each task compared with other tasks performed. Job descriptions are presented for 37 groups. Included are 10 DAFSC groups, 6 job-type clusters, 20 significant job types identified by the automated job-clustering program, and the Helicopter Mechanic Career Ladder Total Sample. A group overlap matrix shows the similarity of groups in terms of time spent on tasks. Summary tables indicate the percentage of members in each group who perform each task. Group difference descriptions are given for selected groups. Distributions of background variables for the total sample and for the DAFSC groups are also shown. (Author)
