Abstract : Data gathering techniques and data gathering instruments were tested in the Aerographer's Mate (AG) and Air Controlman (AC) ratings to determine their feasibility in the building of a Navy enlisted occupational data bank. A twenty page response packet was developed to accommodate responses to a questionnaire concerning specific task statements, items of equipment, watches, types of aircraft, and worker characteristics. Three methods of questionnaire administration and participation by billet incumbents revealed most desirable and least desirable methods. Optical scanning of raw case data, development of computer interface programs, and computer processing methods are described. Examples of computer printouts, with accompanying abstracts in table form, were presented to demonstrate the types of information available for consumer study. (Author)
