Abstract : The object of the study was to examine the job description procedures specified in CONARC Systems Engineering of Training, with reference to their use for officers' jobs, and to develop supplementary procedures for rectifying and deficiencies. Previous evaluations and recent applications of these kinds of procedures to officer jobs were reviewed. It is proposed that major deficiencies can be avoided by beginning the job description process by developing a job model having three major sections which are discussed. (Modified author abstract)
