Abstract : This paper discusses Navy occupational data input methodologies in both current and projected use, related to their determined suitability for employment in front-end job/task/skill analysis (FEA). The text is essentially a historical treatment of a practicum based on ideas presented in the paper titled 'Selection of a Data Collection Methodology for Occupational Analysis' by William A. Hayes. Projected data input and analysis methodologies are discussed in view of potential support or produces outputs projected downstream. These are seen to exist at two levels: foreseen outputs of the entire front-end analysis system (job/task inventories for paygrades, billet descriptions/manpower documents, training programs, curricula) and those within the analysis subsystem (of the processing mechanism itself--task/skill hierarchies, inter/intra task relationships, rankings, etc.).
