The principal objective of this report is to design and develop a multi-purpose occupational analysis system. The system will provide current, accurate, detailed information for users of occupational data, and will also serve as a basis for further studies in associated fields of personnel management. In the phase of the study reported here, methods of occupational analysis used by other military services and the Department of Labor, reported previously, are reviewed briefly and appraised in terms of their applicability to Navy billets. A method for developing an occupational analysis system suitable to the Navy is proposed. It employs the most recent advances in the techniques of collecting, analyzing, storing and retrieving occupational information. The method proposed calls for the establishment of a computerized occupational data bank, and for the use of billet inventories in the collecting of occupational information. The report recommends that the proposed method be used to conduct an occupational analysis of the Boatswains Mate and Radioman ratings, and that this work be considered as a pilot test of the method for its subsequent application to all Navy enlisted billets.
