Abstract : This report presents the results of a detailed Air Force occupational survey of the Vehicle Maintenance Control and Analysis career ladder(AFS 472X4). Two clusters and four independent job types were identified in the analysis. Both clusters and two of the independent job types (84 percent of the sample) were directly involved in day-to-day vehicle control, analysis and scheduling functions. One independent job type (six percent of the survey sample) was involved with supervisory functions. The last independent job type (one percent of the survey sample) was involved in instructional duties. The analysis generally supports the current single-ladder classification structure. The 3- and 7- skill level jobs were highly technical. Seven-skill level members, although still performing many technical tasks, spent an appreciable amount of their duty time in supervisory, managerial, or administrative functions. Both the Specialty Training Standards (STS) and Plan of Instruction (POI) require review for possible adjustments. Some elements and proficiency codes in the STS do not appear to be supported by survey data. The misutilization of other 472XX personnel to perform 472X4 functions also requires review by functional managers across these specialties.
