Abstract : A considerable amount of research has been conducted conerning job analysis methodology. Insufficient information is available, however, as to how job analysis techniques can best be used for such as common course development, curriculum planning, rating restructuring, qualifications for advancement development, job satisfaction, billet restructuring, and distribution and assignment. A study was made to determine research methodology and actual work requirements for the Engineering and Hull ratings. Research tools and techniques for data gathering were developed, tested, and revised. Data were collected, analyzed, and displayed as computer printouts, which were published. This report primarily describes statistical methodology used in these research memoranda including research tool and technique design, sample and population size, ship types and numbers, data gathering methodology and statistical cues indicating task items suitable for Class 'A' School curriculum, overall task importance, and tasks common to two or more of the ten ratings.
