Abstract : Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Occupational Analysis is an attempt to determine what people in a specific career area (mustering) do on their jobs. The procedure employed is to provide members of a mustering with a survey instrument (called a task inventory) and ask them two questions. First, they are asked which tasks they perform in their present jobs; and second, they are asked to rate on a scale from 1 to 9 the relative amount of time they spend on each task they perform. From responses to these two questions, it is possible to determine, for any subgroup within the mustering, the percentage of that subgroup who perform each task and the percentage of the subgroup's time which is spent on each task.
