Abstract:

The Duty Module concept is a recently developed system for grouping job tasks into a more meaningful entity. It is based on clustering tasks that go together occupationally and logically in order to represent jobs with more specificity than is possible when using the MOS system and with more simplicity THAN THE TASK DESCRIPTION SYSTEM AFFORDS. This relatively new concept is still in the research stage, and various possibilities for its use are being explored. This report considers methods of converting officer positions to enlisted ones. Current criteria for allocating proper officer or enlisted grades to positions cannot readily be changed. However, reengineering of specific positions by using Duty Modules is possible, using a Decision Logic Tree Model developed for this project. Procedures for this reengineering are described and an example given in detail. In general, Duty Modules need modification to be used for specifying proper position grades. However, Duty Modules in their present from can be used for reengineering officer positions and for conversion from officer to enlisted status, particularly in TD units.
