In April 1977, the Parachute Rigger career ladder AFSC 582X1 was merged with the Fabric and Rubber Products career ladder AFSC 582X0. The merger of these two ladders resulted in a new AFSC, 427X3, titled Fabrication and Parachute. The current project was requested by TTGXM, Chanute AFB, Illinois, in order to measure the impact of merging the two ladders. In the past, the parachute shop and the fabric shop were often located close4 to each other, and often shared work. They are now under a single shop organization with sections defining mush the same separation of work as before, particularly in the larger shops. The current survey will reflect the results of the merger. Topics discussed in this report include 1 survey methodology 2 job structure within the ladder 3 an analysis of skill level groups and 4 a comparison of the results of the current survey with previous surveys.
