The purpose of the study was to evaluate and improve the job inventory method of job analysis as applied to officer positions. Seven utilization fields were analyzed and inventories were constructed for another three fields. The basic finding was that the inventory method can be used operationally in the analysis of officer jobs if job analysts use specific approaches to task statement construction and if more front-end research than is usually needed for airman job inventories is performed prior to the finalization of a job inventory. No magic formulae for the construction of task statements exist however, after heavy front-end work, the job analyst will obtain enough information to enable him to resolve the issues of task specificity and breadth of coverage for each utilization field on an individual basis.
