Abstract : A major problem in the utilization of personnel appears when one attempts to identify skills and knowledges acquired in job assignments held in the past. Lack of regular job inventorying of Air Force personnel by individuals rather than samples makes it infeasible to use job inventories to recapture a given airman's record. Present plans to broaden the use of identifiers of special skills may correct this deficiency for future airmen, but it fails to do so for the bulk of current personnel. A possibility of using the Functional Account Code (FAC), assigned by the management engineering team (MET), was perceived, and a pilot study was performed to verify the potential. This was possible because a file of records on all studies clustering job inventories from 1965-1971 had just been readied, with the FAC for each airman included. Seventy-five AFSCs are shown in graphic form. A more intensive analysis was then made of the Administration Specialist ladder, which contains the largest number of FACs of any specialty.
