Abstract:

Inventory booklets were administered to Electronic Warfare Systems career ladder incumbents during the period November 1977 through April 1978. Survey results are based on responses from 1,805 incumbents or 71 percent of the 2,549 assigned 328X3 personnel. Twelve major job groups were identified within the career ladder. Seven of these groups are primarily involved in the direct maintenance of electronic warfare EW systems, with the five remaining groups consisting of supervisors, instructors, supply monitors, and quality controllers. There are clear differences in the tasks performed by 5-, 7-, and 9- skill level respondents. DAFSC 32853 respondents are primarily involved in the direct maintenance of a wide variety of EW systems. Seven-skill level respondents perform many of the same tasks performed by 5-skill level respondents, but also are involved in the supervision and management of EW systems maintenance. Nine-skill level respondents primarily perform only supervisory and managerial tasks. The specialty descriptions for all skill levels were compared to the survey data and were found to present a clear and comprehensive overview of the major duties and tasks performed by career ladder incumbents. However, the 7-skill level specialty description could be expanded in the area of training.
