Abstract : The mission of the Occupational Analysis (OA) Program is to provide the Army's manpower, personnel, and training (MPT) communities with the individual task information critical to job design, analysis and training development. It is through the integration of the requirements of these three communities at the military occupational specialty (MOS) or job level that the OA Program supports the field commander, the ultimate customer for occupational analysis in the Army. The OA Program is to be the Army's center of excellence for job analysis and design. The program is in a transition period, adapting its procedures and methods to meet the needs of today's fast-paced Army. Through the adoption of contemporary technology, the OA Program is committed to providing its customers in the MPT communities rapid, clear information needed to help ensure that the right soldiers, with the appropriate skills, are available to meet Army-wide requirements. This progress report details the OA Program and provides examples of occupational analysis products.
