Abstract:

The field test of a data-gathering instrument designed to collect occupational information from billet incumbents through the use of a mailed rating billet inventory RBI, is described. Collected data are processed and stored on magnetic tape. Computer programs are utilized to analyze collected data and provide printouts to serve as a basis for making decisions in various areas of personnel administration, such as manpower authorizations, training, advancement, assignment, and job evaluation. The Boatswains Mate rating was selected for the field test because the duties of the rating are required on nearly every ship type and class in the Navy.
