Abstract:

The report contains a brief history of the development of the Navys currently used alpha random-numeric enlisted classification system and a recapitulation of prior research directed toward design of an optimum enlisted classification structure. The occupational classification systems of the other U. S. military services, the DOD occupational groupings, and the Department of Labors Dictionary of Occuptational Titles DOT classification system are analyzed with a view towards determining characteristics which might be adapted to a Navy all-digit enlisted classification system. Prerequisites for design of a classification system, and requirements and procedures for testing a classification system are presented. A tentative realignment of present occupational groupings and some examples of experimental classification systems are shown. Modified author abstract
