Abstract : This paper compares costs for storing, analyzing, and maintaining a totally automated data base to the costs incurred in utilizing current data analysis that includes both automated data storage and analysis and use of subject matter experts. The Naval Education and Training Command has used documented maintenance and repair procedures from four avionics (aviation electronics) ratings to build a computerized data base for automated job/task/skill analysis in the ISD process; current analysis uses data collected primarily from job incumbents, stored and analyzed in a computer, and analyzed further by users for employment in ISD.
