Abstract : A job inventory covering the Logistics Utilization Field, and consisting of 307 tasks classified under nine duty categories was administered to an analysis sample of 613 officers in 20 major commands, and in six grades from colonel to second lieutenant. These incumbents completed a background information section, and, on a seven-point scale of relative values, rated each task performed as a part of their job. In spite of the fact that the utilization field has only two specialties, Logistics Staff Officer (6616) and Logistics Officer (6624), the work is heterogeneous in terms of percentage of job which individual officers devote to common tasks. In addition to the data usually employed in identifying job type groups, two other sources of information were used: the current duty title of the incumbents, extracted from the Uniform Officer Record files; and the percentage of the job devoted to task categories, generated by reclassifying the tasks according to kind of work rather than according to action taken, as in the case of duties appearing in the inventory.
